The category winners for the 2022 Coin of the Year competition have been announced.
See the complete list in the linked Numismatic News article.
Canada was the country to beat as the best of the best went head-to-head in the first round of balloting for the 2022 Coin of the Year (COTY) Awards, an internationally conducted awards program recognizing excellence and ingenuity in coin design. The annual program, presented by World Coin News and sponsored by the Journal of East Asian Numismatics, honors 2021-dated coins issued by countries around the world.
From a field of 100 coins put forth by the COTY Nominating Committee, judges were faced with tough competition from coins across the globe. Many mints had multiple nominations and voting was close in many categories, but there could only be one winner for each. While some categories had close calls, with the winners taking home the trophy with only a few votes to set them above others, others blew their competitors out of the water. Canada was one such example in Best Crown, winning the category with the most votes received across all categories of the entire COTY competition. Canada also won the Best Circulating.
The winners in each of these 10 categories will go on to the final round in the competition and vie for the prestigious title of Coin of the Year.
Stay tuned for the final winner to be announced and for details on the 2023 awards ceremony at www.NumismaticNews.net.
