Joseph Menna interview

Joseph Menna is a a medallic sculptor at the United States Mint. If you've spent a Lincoln cent struck since 2010, you have spent a coin that Menna has sculpted.

Beyond the reverse of the Shield cent, he has designed or engraved dozens of coins and medals for the U.S. Mint, including the George Washington and Thomas Jefferson Presidential dollar obverses and the Martha Washington First Spouse gold coin obverse.

In this CoinWeek video, we go to the Mint's engraving department studio to talk to Menna about modern coin design, the role Proof coinage plays in design fundamentals, and which of his designs over the years truly stands out as his favorite.
