The Wyoming Arts Council is encouraging Wyoming artists to “submit designs for coins in commemoration of the State of Wyoming’s 125th anniversary of statehood.”
The deadline to submit a design is Friday, Aug. 1.
According to information provided by the Wyoming Arts Council, a commemorative coin will be “minted in silver and offered for sale.” There may also be an opportunity to pre-order the coin in gold.
Profits from the coin sale will support programming through the Wyoming Arts Council.
The coin’s imagery “should celebrate the state’s 125th Anniversary, and must include the dates 1890-2015. It may be a single image, or a montage.”
Up to three additional coins will also be created as giveaways for the Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches. These should not include dates. Images for the coins may be iconic images of Wyoming, or recognize an important historical person or event.
Some symbols adopted by the state legislature may be found online at www.wyo.gov/about-wyoming/wyoming-facts-and-symbols.
Artists may submit designs for one or more coins, and may submit multiple times.
To apply, go to www.callforentry.org.
