The WVU Values Coin program was created to recognize faculty and staff across our University who help bring our mission to life through their daily work. Take advantage of this special opportunity to help choose the design for the 2019 coin, which will be presented to select employees throughout next year.

2019 WVU VALUES Coin Designs

The following designs were created with input from faculty and staff featured in WVU's Mountaineer Values video vignettes. Vote for your favorite below.

First coin design

Design A

This design visually demonstrates examples of how WVU is bringing its mission to life by advancing education, healthcare and research. The University’s values of Service, Curiosity, Respect Accountability and Appreciation encircle the imagery to symbolize that our values are part of everything we do at WVU.

Second coin design

Design B

WVU’s faculty, staff and students often share that the University feels like “home.” This design visually builds off the 2018 values coin imagery, which featured the state of West Virginia. However, the updated imagery also incorporates the “home” theme and introduces a gold background.

Third coin design

Design C

WVU’s theme song, “Take Me Home Country Roads,” has been performed at every home football pre-game show since 1972. The song also is associated with the University across the U.S. and around the world. This design visually incorporates the Country Roads theme in a manner that is similar to U.S. state quarters.
