Coin Concepts -- “Mint Conditions”
  • “No head and shoulder portrait or bust” may be included.
  • State mottos are acceptable, but other inscriptions should not be included.
  • Priority will be given to designs and concepts that are “enduring representations” of the State, since coins have a commercial lifespan of at least 30 years and are collected for generations.
  • Rhode Island residents of all ages are encouraged to submit coin concepts
  • Deadline for submissions is May 14th, by 4:30pm
  • Each coin concept must be accompanied by a written description, no longer than 100 words in length, which describes the reasons for consideration of the concept.
  • Include the name, address, and daytime telephone number of the individual who submitted the coin concept.
  • Individuals may submit only one coin concept.
  • Coin concepts must be submitted on paper no larger than 8 1/2” x 11”.
  • No slides, film, transparencies or three-dimensional designs or photography will be accepted.
  • Coin concepts must meet the federal design concept parameters.
