The artwork of a Phillips-area artist could one day appear on the coins and commemorative medals manufactured by the U.S. Mint. Katelyn Arquette was one of 27 artists selected out of 437 applicants nationwide to create the art that appears on the nation's coinage this April, making her the only current Wisconsin-based artist to be contracted with the Mint.

Arquette will have the opportunity to create designs for any of the coins released by the U.S. Mint, from commemorative coins and presidential medals and to the quarters everyone has jingling in their pockets. Already hard at work creating new designs for projects that cannot yet be disclosed, Arquette says this opportunity has been a longtime dream of hers.
