Coin design

Coin design is a specialised craft that requires patience and an eye for detail. It is a craft Jonathan is passionate about and with each commission undertaken, the desire to create something special is always his ultimate objective. To achieve this, the process requires extensive research and an innovative approach to design. The concept of representing an international or national occasion within a concise and very small scale coin design is exciting and can often be a challenge, one that Jonathan is always keen to take on.

Jonathan’s aim as a designer is to create a design that is visually dynamic and accurately represents the ambience of the occasion. Whether it is celebrating a current event or commemorating a past occasion, each design must fulfil the brief and capture the essence of that special moment in time.
