We’ve been asked several times for the story behind the Coin Academy owl, so, here you go… When searching for an identity for Coin Academy, we knew we wanted to accomplish a couple of things: First, we wanted to make a connection with currency/finance/forex, and we also wanted a symbol that reflected our emphasis on education. We looked at a variety of different symbols and played with a number of different ideas. In the end, it was a classical image drawn directly from ancient coinage that made the cut.
