NumismaTalks "National Coin Week — Seeking Relief in Old, New, High and Low Places: The Flip Sides of Medallic Art" (Jamie Franki)


Martes, 23 de abril de 2024 (17:00–18:00 UTC-6)


(en) Medallic Art is simultaneously rooted in tradition and fueled by innovation. Using the concepts of tradition and innovation as "flip sides" for our consideration, Franki will explore contemporary trends in making, commissioning and collecting medals which impacted his creative research in Numismatic Design.

Jamie Franki is an Emeritus Association Professor of Illustration recently retired from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he coordinated the Illustration program in their Department of Art and Art History. He was also a designer in the United States Mint's Artistic Infusion Program. In 2005, his American Bison Nickel reverse design was selected for a six-month minting. This nickel was awarded a "COTY" (Coin of the Year Award) as the Most Popular World Coin of 2005. In January of 2006, his Jefferson 1800 Nickel obverse design began its long-term run gracing America's new and historic forward-facing circulating coin, with over twenty-five billion strikes in circulation thus far. In 2008 Franki designed the Order of IKKOS Medallion, the United States Olympic Committee's perpetual honor society award medal for Team USA Olympic and Paralympic coaches. In 2021, his jury-selected reverse design for the United States Air Force Silver Medal was struck and released by the US Mint. He is a member of the American Medallic Sculpture Association and an honorary lifetime member of the Charlotte Coin Club. No stranger to the Money Talks podium, Jamie has enjoyed a long consultative relationship with the American Numismatic Association, for whom he has designed and sculpted numerous medals for their World's Fair of Money® and National Money Show® conventions.
