While four designs were under consideration, members with the Hamilton Coin Society voted to continue the search for a logo this January.
Two logos each received 28 per cent of the votes, but 33 per cent of voting members “ultimately preferred to solicit more entries or to have the existing entries further refined,” said Vice-President Stephen Adams.
“With planning and preparations in full swing for the upcoming 58th ONA Convention, the club executive will revisit the logo in a few months and provide another opportunity for the creative members of our community to have their work featured as the club logo.”
The submitted logo concepts included:
- an Alexander Hamilton coin with an “all-seeing eye” motif;
- a design featuring the Lancaster Bomber and several waterfalls;
- overlapping nickel dollars with the years 1952 and 2019 (the former referencing the original Hamilton Coin Club); and
- a design highlighting the Golden Horseshoe region in southern Ontario.
