Tales You Lose: Coin Recreations by Andre Levy

Tales you Lose is an ongoing project by Andre Levy, a Brazilian designer based in Frankfurt, Germany. Levy takes a variety of coins and hand-paints new and familiar faces on each one, giving a carbon-copied object its own life. Often, it only takes a few strategic lines and blocks of color over the coin base to form an alternate, recognizable character.

Of the project Levy says, "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."
