What is an Artist Trading Coin?
An Artist Trading Coin or ATCoin is a 2.5" circle of art/collage created on a thicker base such as a cereal box. Here’s an ATCoin pinterest board from our very own @pioneer9 and a website from a papercrafter who shares some of the ATCoins she’s made along with some tips: Artist Trading Coins Round-Up – The Fat Cactus

I’ve never done ATCoins before… tempting. I’ll have to think about it :slight_smile:

Oh my goodness! I had a short-lived obsession with ATCoins a couple years ago and this may have rekindled that. Hmmmmm.

I think what stopped me was that my circle dies did not include a 2.5", but I have scissors…

Signing up!

Sent my questionnaire!

I am debating - this is tiny art maybe…

My searches for ATCoins yielded lots of images of non-flat coins. Also coins of wood or fabric, not just paper!

Here is the pinboard I started a couple years ago when I got a little obsessed w/o actually pursuing ATCoins. Some/many are definitely “lumpy.”

I need to come up with a few more themes to fill out my list, and then I’ll send my q.

Welcome to the swap @megwell and @Cyn-energy !

I have the week of Thanksgiving off of work and I need to push myself to create, so I am in! Working on my questionnaire now. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@Reinikka I hope you join. ATCoins are a lot of fun and I’d love to have a big gallery of greatness. We could use you for that!
@Animegirlie I say let your imagination fly! I am curious about these 3-D ATCoins. Join so I can see them. They may inspire me to make some!
