While on a trip to New Orleans, one of our designers noticed a coin insignia on a building in the French Quarter. The marker - set prominently above the threshold - was to designate the building as a location that paid for additional city services like fire fighters, running water, and trash removal. The coin bore the family's name in a beautiful font and had their address scrolled around it to give notice to the city that this family was entitled to full municipal services. The coin insignia -- still beautiful 200 years later is the inspiration that led to our hand drawn type coin design. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
