That's a pretty impressive symbol! I like it. It is not the "official" banner that goes under your name, but I have to admit, the symbol definitely attempts to spread the word about this awesome website.

Under consideration...

:thumbsup: Thanks Mark for doing this Contest ! It's been awhile since we've had one and I think everyone should take the initiative and do one of their own if they can . I've done several and had just as fun doing the Contest as participating in them . So let's give Mark a big Thank You !! :yourock:

I plan on doing my own in the near future and if you've seen my Contests, you'll definitely want to play along since I always give away several Prizes and BONUS Coins or Currency in addition to the advertised Prizes .
I just have a couple hints for the Contest right now : It will be a Chance/ skills Contest possibly ( Guessing how many Coins in a jar or guess the grades for example ) , secondly it will consist of Mostly Kennedy Halve's and Susan B Anthony Dollars ( the dollar coins will be my extra Bonus prizes ) , one Franklin half (1st Prize ) and maybe a Morgan Dollar for a Grand Prize ( getting the exact amount of Coins in a jar for example ). I just have to figure out the Contest. It might be a " 2 ways to win " Contest ( 2 separate contests in one ) .
So, when I'm ready, I'll give everyone a fair chance by Pre-Posting the start Date/ Time ( eastern time )

Here's going to be the Grand Prize :
