Way back in 2003 I designed these coins and got them and had the concept copyrighted. It was a huge fun learning experience. I found a mint that would make quality coins to my specs.
My own son was the creative inspiration for these coins. As he started loosing teeth ,I scrambled to find silver dollars and half dollars that had been passed down to me by my folks. As I looked at the men on those coins and saw it through a Childs eyes,A big light went off in my head. Why are men on the Tooth Fairy's Coins? She must have her own money. In my mind she was beautiful! So, it all took off from there.
Now 15 years later I have the joy of knowing that these coins have sold and been sent all over the world. Many children world wide have woke up to something I designed to help the Tooth Fairy spread the magic of childhood.
It has been a pleasure and I have met many wonderful parents ,grandparents ,dentist, and other artists along the way. - Dawn Duane
