Ben "The Bear" Tower

Brad Tower came to us to have these designed and minted to honor his young son, Ben, who died in a house fire along with his two siblings. Ben’s football team will use the coin for their opening coin toss.

Thank you again - I'm excited to share this memorial of my son.”

Designing Dollars

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?During its first two centuries, the United States Mint obtained designs for nine regular-issue coins through contests involving outside artists -- persons not employed on its staff. Most have won acclaim for their craftsmanship and beauty. In fact, some of these coins are ranked -- by connoisseurs and critics alike -- among the nation's finest works of numismatic art.

The dollar coin portraying Sacagawea, which debuted in January 2000, lengthens this list to 10. The obverse was designed by artist Glenna Goodacre, using Shoshone Randy'L He-dow Teton as a model for Sacagawea.
