Вчера, 1 февраля 2020 года, на проводимой в Берлине Всемирной ярмарке денег (World Money Fair) вновь прошла церемония присуждения премий конкурса «Монета года» (Coin of the Year, COTY), организованная Издательством «Krause Publications» и журналом «World Coin News». Комиссия из представителей монетных дворов, центральных банков, музеев, нумизматических организаций, журналистов и частных экспертов озвучит лучшие монеты 2018 года. Оценка монет основывалась на оценке привлекательности дизайна, художественного исполнения и качества чеканки.

Каждая монета, победившая в конкурсе, получает специальный диплом, подтверждающий победу и статуэтку.

Для участия в конкурсе монеты отбираются весьма строго. Важны интересный креативный дизайн и качество чеканки. И только результаты труда лучших художников и монетных дворов получают право участвовать в конкурсе.
