Object Collection: American Coins

I figured the 4th of July was a good day to publish my collection of American coin objects that I’ve scanned over the past week. All the coins are provided in transparent PNG format. Coins are tricky to scan – the edges on some of these coins aren’t perfect, but they should look good when dropped into a layout. I started these scans at 600dpi but had shifted up to 900dpi at the end where I scanned the $1 coin – I’ll be using 900dpi from now on for small object scanning. Enjoy!

    Even though there theoretically is a $1 coin, in practice it is not used. I’ve had a hard time even getting them from the bank. The only place I’ve ever seen them in public is mass transit.

  • Chris,
    Yeah, I was surprised when I ended up with one – I think I got it in Hawaii…
