Tree of Life coin by sandara Tree of Life coin by sandara
Hi everyone,

This is my newest coin design.

Since its subject matter is a little different to what I usually do, I thought I'd ask you all for feedback and interest in buying this coin. :)

It would probably make a good gift for your bio teacher or a biologist. XD

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

As a hobby, I enjoy reading up on animals, and for a few years I read up on evolution and related sciences.
As it made quite an impact on me (sad to say, I never took Biology in school), I thought to design a coin based on it.

So on the front is a circular phylogenetic tree, with various species represented under the lines.
On the back is a quote from Darwin, together with 14 of his Galapagos finches.

Thanks to :iconthoughtweaver: for the tree and :iconseridon: for help in checking and suggestions for the animals. :)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This one is just the sample the mint sent me.

I will be getting the first round of minting of this coin in a month or so, and it will come in 5 color variants.

I run an atheist instagram page, and is it alright if I post a picture advertising your product (linking to your deviant art and etsy pages)? I'm sure some of them would be interested in purchasing a coin from you :) If you have an instagram profile I can tag you :)

Sure you can! The coins are almost sold out though. There will be more, but probably in a month or two's time.

Very beautiful design, it's unfortunate though that so many people believe evolution is actually true when there is not even one piece of evidence for it, this is no more than a theory, our creator has created all the variety and beauty in the world, not random mindless chance.

Love.

'not even one piece of evidence for it'
You just lost all credibility you could've had there, mate.
