National Coin Week, sponsored by the American Numismatic Association (ANA), is fast approaching with an April 21 start date.

One student, Lydia Lucas, submitted the above design for a Sherlock Holmes hobo nickel.

Lydia also submitted the following explanation for her design.

You can view all of the proposed hobo nickels designs at the Pinterest board the ANA created.
