    Popculture characters painted on coins
    Frankfurt-based Brazilian designer Andre Levy paints tiny pop culture characters on these tiny coins. The project cleverly titled "Tales you Lose", started out as a series of instagram posts trying to inject some fun into ordinary change. "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?" says Levy.
