"Seven Sacred Teachings" Coin Project

Finally, a year and a half in the making, the full set of coins for the very special "7 Sacred Teachings" project I worked on with The Mint is now released. Each coin represents a sacred teaching. In this format, it is a special treasure and a learning tool that will be passed down among the generations of collectors, ensuring the teachings live on. Along with the Mint staff and the Elders, academics and experts we consulted with, we were diligent in ensuring the meaning and essence of each teaching was accurate. I also tried to ensure my interpretations stayed true to the teaching but that the designs were universal enough for anyone to understand.
