About the Creators

The coin’s artwork was done by two of the premiere coin artists in the United States. The artwork to realize the vision of the coin was conceived by Joel Iskowitz, a veteran coin artist and also an artist of many commemorative coins for the US mint including the design for the proposed Benjamin Banneker version of the District of Columbia quarter in 2009. The sculptures necessary to make the coin dies were done by Luigi Badia, a well-known sculptor in the US, especially for his sculpts of coin artwork.
