This was a simple idea - a coin with 'proper' head and tail sides. What sort of animal has a recognisable head and tail? Obviously, a pig.
But the first design wasn't quite right on one side. I'd tried to round out the tail side, but it was too shallow to work well given the printing layer height. It was also too deeply set, and I didn't get the tail quite right. I had to do better.
So I redid it, and while I was at it ,made a larger, plastic version.
And last night they arrived. The tail works really well.


Just by chance it was frosty this morning, which I thought would look photogenic. But first I had to get them back.



My favourite is definitely the metal one, but a co-worker was particularly taken with the pink one.

The end.
