Coin Motifs & Nation Building ; Infographic Series

This project appropriates and studies coin symbols from globally prominent countries to gather information that connect coin motifs to nation-building within the origin country. Through an exploratory, inductive and informative approach, the coin symbols are categorized into purposefully designed infographics to relevantly position the symbolic themes and each symbols significance is examined. The collected information is then synthesized into probable political ideologies. The functional objective of this project is to provide information on latent political ideologies found in coins (in connection to nation-building), to probe the viewers into noticing the underlying political ideologies that can be present in a commonplace and everyday object such as coins.
