    If this is non profit organization as Cameo pointed out then I would not want to use that saying. People may think we are part of it.

    The coin is not to represent the North Maine Woods as in the web site North Maine Woods. The gate your referring to does not cover all of the North Maine Woods. That is the name for a Multiple Use Management Area and not the whole North Maine Woods of Maine, so I say that is another reason not to use that name.

    Here is my thought on this.

    I was under the impression that each year or every two years or how ever often we decide to do a coin that the coin would be different each time. For example we could choose different parts of the state to be represented on the coin. One year we could do the Coast and another year we could do farming and so on and so forth.

    So my idea would be to call it “Northern Maine Woods” seeing that is the part of the state that the coin is representing.

    Also if you think about it when referring to different parts of the state of Maine you use the following sayings, Northern Maine, Southern Maine, Western Maine, and Eastern Maine. It would not sound right to use these sayings, North Maine, South Maine, West Maine, and East Maine. So I say use “Northern Maine Woods”.

    That is my opinion and I am sticking to it.


    Here is the definition of “Northern” from the dictionary.
    1. lying toward or situated in the north.
    2. directed or proceeding northward.
    3. a person living in a northern region or country.

    Haffy, here is a pic of the coin we did on the left, antique bronze in the middle and gold on the right. The middle one shows more detail as it is less shiny.
