The artist within has always been with Eleanor Coia McKelvey. She was schooled in commercial art and worked at the U.S. Mint as an exhibit designer and ultimately, museum manager. While there, the Mint sculptor-engravers encouraged her to sculpt. She began with bas relief portraits and has now found a passion in sculpting small figures in the round in microcrystalline wax, some of which she has bronzed. She had the pleasure of serving as assistant sculptor for Fr. Leonard Carrieri, an internationally known sculptor, when he was in his 90's and losing his eyesight- a most humbling, yet delightful experience.

The Gold and Silver Mine: Lowly cent costs a fortune to mint The Gold and Silver Mine: Lowly cent costs a fortune to mint This week’s column was intended to be me putting in my 2 cents worth of opinion about the lowly 1 cent coin, but a timely article in the Wall Street Journal added some additional statistics, so I have incorporated them here. An interesting note, the author of that WSJ article interchanged the terms cent and penny, even though the American coin is a “cent,” one-one hundredth of a dollar, not a penny, which is a British monetary unit.
