    I like the snowshoe lobster idea in the shape of the crossed shoes. Very cool

    Yes and very unique which is what folks seem to be seeking.

    I agree with this snowshoe/lobster coin, sounds awesome! Great thinking everyone!

    Nice idea, should it also be a Maine coin? Any artists want to work up a proof?

    You know that mock up would almost work with the outline of both the lobster and the snow shoes. Who would have thought? Winter in Maine and summer in Maine,I think it would work.

    I have been meaning to get around to working on a coin image for this but I have just been to busy. I just threw something together to get some feedback on this. What does everyone think. Feedback is welcome.
    One is a combination and the two would be the front of the coin and the back of the coin.

    I like the idea of having a maine outline behind it...making it unique! But that's JMO I like the one by Dr. Who I think....that same concept

    I can do Maine in the background but I think everyone wanted a different shaped coin and something unique. All our past coind have had our Maine logo on the front.

    Another option would be to make the shape of the coin the shape of Maine and do soming like this.

    I looked at Dr. Who's coin a little closer. Did anyone else notice it might also be used to open soda bottles too, if it were just the right size?
