|In creating the Anniversary Coin, the cover artwork created by JK Christian is converted into a 3-dimensional sculpture. This process was performed by Caesar Rocco Rufo, one of the world's leading coin sculptors. Shown here, Caesar is hand crafting the various layers that will ultimately become the penn 75th Anniversary Coin.|
Once the molds of the coin are complete, Ben Maddesi takes the molds, creates a reverse and begins the process of scaling the mold to an actual coin size die. This die is then finished, polished and cleaned, and ultimately stamps the impression onto the blanks of the coin at the Mint. The result is a detailed 3-D rendering of the original artwork, scaled down to an inch and a half coin.
