After last years Bitcoin homage, Mint XXI returns to the United Crypto States with a Dogecoin

It’s a tumultuous time for cryptocurrency, with the markets having taken a heavy battering, but it’s still fighting, and still has a cultural hold, at least. Bitcoin is the big one, followed by Ethereum, but there are literally hundreds of them, mostly of a highly dubious nature. One that is touted as the first ‘Meme=coin’ is Dogecoin. Having as its mascot the face of the Shiba Inu dog, it was originally created as a joke, but is now the 11th biggest crypto coin in circulation.

Last year, Mint XXI debuted Liberty, a coin with a female personification on its reverse face, and a holographic shield on its obverse, behind which was a sticker carrying the private key with the value on it. This year is exactly the same, although the key is denominated in Dogecoin. Indeed, it’s a common obverse, except for the denomination inscribed at the top.

The reverse face is the main attraction of these coins, of course, and this time we’re treated to an Andy Warhol-esque portrayal of Dogecoin’s mascot in full colour. The background carries the Dogecoin logo, highlighted in a range of different colours. Fortunately, this face is kept clean of superfluous inscriptions, with everything tucked away on the obverse, where it belongs.

Everything comes neatly boxed, and it’s clear that Mint XXI have put a lot of extra effort into this one, even down to giving the series its own modern website, where you can track new issues. If crypto is your thing, this is a neat offering for fans, but even if you’re not (and we’re definitely not!), it’s an innovative and attractive release. Available to order now, from either the mint partner Top World Coins, or from one of the many dealers worldwide,
