In 2022, the competition is being held for the sixteenth time, and it can be stated that over the years it has become one of the most authoritative in the world. The winners are determined by a professional jury consisting of specialists from the largest museums, auction houses, numismatic societies, commercial banks, specialized publications about coins.
Getting into the nomination "Unique Concept" is not an easy goal. The coin can be made of any metal; the technologies used by its creators do not matter. The main thing is the idea and the depth of implementation.
The first place in the nomination "Unique concept" was taken by the coin "Robots", minted by Artisan Coin Productions (USA).

the Robots coins from the Next Evolution series have received another and very prestige award - 1st place in “Most Inspirational Coin” nomination at "COTY competition (Coin of The Year)" from 2,300 coins produced around the globe, 100 rose to the top. This is how 10 coins in 10 categories of competition became The COTY 100, these to be considered by an international panel of judges in the first round of voting in the 2023 Coin of the Year awards. The coins are all dated 2021.
The program, presented by World Coin News and sponsored by The Journal of East Asian Numismatics, begins each year when the COTY Nominating Committee convenes to select these 100 nominees.
“After all the preliminary weeding down from roughly 2,300 coins produced in 2021, the COTY Nominating Committee considered nearly 400 coins from 40 countries in just about four hours,” said Tom Michael, COTY co-coordinator, senior editor and market analyst for NumisMaster. “In the end, they selected coins from more than 30 of them as finalists. I really like that broad span! It tells us that an increasing number of coin producers and issuing countries are creating hand-held works of high quality on an ever-expanding basis.”
Voting for the Most Inspirational coin was very diverse this year, with COTY Judges looking to the past, present and future for inspiring themes. The winner arose from a view of the future with The Next Evolution 20 Dollar black proof silver and gold plated issue for Tokelau paving the way for this countries first COTY win and some major recognition for Artisan Coin Productions innovative design work.
