The Royal Mint: 2011 Coin
DesignStudio have been commissioned to design the 2011 £2 coin for the Royal Mint. Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the first widely distributed bible, the King James bible.
DesignStudio have embossed the quote 'In the beginning was the Word' from John 1:1. A very clever design which commends the tradition of the printing process, and in an almost book-like fashion the quote is mirrored in raised and recessed repeat, could visually be folded upon itself.
