Tales You Lose is a creative project by Brazilian artist Andre Levy featuring pop culture characters painted on various coins from around the world. You can view more of Andre’s custom coins online via Tumblr and Facebook.

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.
