I'd put my father's face on it. He always carried with him his lucky coin, but I somehow misplaced it after his passing. I believe that would be a cool way to commemorate him.

I would design a two-headed coin, with Bruce Banner on one side, and the Hulk on the other. That way you could flip the coin to decide if you want a rational response, or an angry one.

I'd put my father's face on a coin. He was a msucian, artist, amzing gardener, down to earth guy who was a fantastic dad.

Otherwise I'd go for Neil Gaiman, who is my favorite author and endlessly inspiring to my imagination.
