Coin Constellation Awards 2018

Four awards for CIT and its partners!

For the twelfth time, the Russian Coin Constellation contest awarded coins from national banks, mints and distributors in nine categories, on November 2nd, 2018. As one of the world’s largest and most significant coin contests, Coin Constellation attracted 41 participants from 26 countries who submitted over 220 coins. Issuing year of all coin entrants was 2017.

CIT is overjoyed to mirror last years success with four awards! The Time Capsule Coin won second place in the category “Unique Concept” thanks to its truly outstanding design and technology paired with a coin box that can be turned into a time capsule to hold treasures and memories for the future.
The 7 Summits series, featuring topographic smartminting relief, won its first award with Mount Everest in the prestigious category “Coin of the Year”.

While CIT is proud to receive awards for new and innovative coins, it is equally rewarding to see CIT’s clients succeed year after year! As stated last year, progressive and creative clients who value innovation and technological perfection are invaluable to the coin industry as a whole and the success of new techniques, such as smartminting, in particular. Our long-lasting partnerships with PowerCoin and NumisCollect prove that success is not a matter of luck but dedication, passion and above all the risk to try something new and different.
Congratulations to PowerCoin for their first place award in the category “Best Artistic Solution” with the incredible Birth of Venus coin of the Micromosaic Passion series and to NumisCollect for their continued success and silver medal in the category “Original Technology” with the beautiful coin Mars the Red Planet of the Meteorite series.

We look forward to future competitions and wish all our partners good luck!
