Imagine going into a shop and trying to buy Yogi-Sip with one of these, I think the guy behind the counter would chase you out with a clap up the side of your head. This brilliant idea and project called Tales You Lose has been executed by Brazilian artist Andre Levy who has painted stacks of pop culture figures on all sorts of coins. His characters range from Homer Simpson to Batgirl to The Bride of Frankenstein and so on and so on. I’ve picked some of my favourites to post here, but you can check them all out on his Facebook page.

How rad would of Kiss coins be?

– Coins are actually massively-reproduced little sculptures. This project brings individual character to each replica, and makes us think: Are we able to like one cent more than others, just by injecting new stories in it? Those are the Tales You Lose.
