It's not everyday that you get the opportunity to make history as a designer. The United States Mint in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts is having an open call to find a group of artists to design new coins that will go into circulation. As many as 20 artists will be awarded one-year contracts to work remotely in the Artistic Infusion Program. The artists will create designs in response to various commissions and will receive additional compensation for each design that reaches production. The opportunity is cool for the present, but imagine being able to tell your children or grandchildren that you were instrumental in creating the money in their pockets. 

Answer the call here if you've got what it takes.
