Coin Design History and Resume for Daniel Carr

Daniel Carr received a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado in 1982. He also studied computer graphics and art extensively. He wrote his own digital sculpting computer software which he uses in an innovative process to create coins, medals, and tokens.

 

"Amero"

A currency union, similar to the European Union "Euro" has been proposed for North America. The name of the new currency is the "Amero". The Wikipedia encyclopedia article has additional details about the "Amero". This has been the source for many conspiracy theories tied in with other proposals such as the "Canamex Corridor".

Statement On the North American Union

I have received numerous inquiries as to my personal stand on the North American Union (NAU) issue. My goal with these coins is not to endorse a Union of North America or a common "Amero" currency. I fully support the United States Constitution, and I would not welcome (in any form) a diminishment of its provisions. I expect that these coins will help make more people aware of the issue and the possible ramifications. I leave it up to others to decide if they are in favor of, or against a North American Union. And I encourage citizens to voice their approval or disapproval of government plans that impact them.

He submitted six designs in a national open design competition for the US Mint's 1993 WWII commemorative coins.

He proposed Apollo Astronaut designs for the new small-size "golden" dollar coin. The designs were featured on the front page of Coin World on two separate occasions (March 30, 1998 and April 13, 1998 issues).

He applied for, and was granted, the opportunity to make a presentation at the Dollar Coin Advisory Committee meeting in Philadelphia in 1999. The purpose of the meeting was to decide what woman to portray on the new small-size "golden" dollar. His designs and proposal for Bessie Coleman was tied for second place in the committee's voting behind Sacagawea.

He created the only unsolicited works to be accepted in the limited invitational design competition for the Sacajawea dollar.

Oh pretty! I like coins too.
I still have the earrings and pendent my dad for me out of silver mercury coins when I was a little kid.
They look similar to this. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/49/eb/7a/49eb7a400cb04ab3ccfc88855847071e.jpg

very nice! I think I will.. I got my drill out as we speak, I just need a clasp

Neat, you can do it yourself! What's the AK47 one from?
Just a piece of strongish wire will work for a hoop to put on a leather cord or something.

1 gram or one t oz? I carry a 1 gram sliver on a laminated card and it is so small I don't even drag it out and show it.

I carry a Silver Buffalo and a 2014 Silver Eagle as pocket pieces.

Sometimes I carry 4 coins to show to people I want to wake up. The 2018 Slave Queen and Buffalo both issued by Zombucks. Both of these show the direction we are going in and  an ASE to show how we once were a proud nation with real money and a penny that I put on the tracks when I was a boy to show them how thin times may get if we don't End The Fed, Start demanding financial accountability from our, so called, leaders.

They make a powerful presentation.

that is very cool what you do with them! I don't make charms out of 1 troy ounce coins in case I needed to sell them, but 1 gram, not a loss in value really.. using them just to try and make it popular before digital money becomes the new currency.. they were given to me.. I know the melt value wouldn't change really.. it's just having fun with it

I use them to describe where their money system and the world is headed and where we came from. Hope the images come out this time.

Sometimes, with close friends and when out of town I pull a couple of 1  t oz. Sunshine Mint bars and try to pay for our lunch. More times than not, after finding a manager to set it up, I do pay with them to the amazement of these friends. (I can be a little sneaky) :wink:

Silver and Gold is real money, despite what anyone says to the contrary.
