Playboy Birthday Coin
Recently, we were commissioned to design a coin
commemorating Hugh Hefner’s 80th birthday .
After several design efforts this final version was chosen. It
is the size of a U.S. silver dollar and contains one ounce of
gold and one carat of fine diamonds. The hand carved image
is Marilyn Monroe and is similar to her well known pose as
the centerfold of the first issue of Playboy magazine in
December of 1953. The coin was presented to him at his
birthday party held at the Playboy mansion. An order was
subsequently placed with us for an additional three coins
as gifts for Mr. Hefner’s three roommates.
It was an honor to be chosen to design this coin for a
well known personality such as Mr. Hefner.
