So, I suggest you complete a simple lesson on how to draw a coin. Any coin has a front and back side on which any symbols are depicted, for example, a portrait of the monarch, the state emblem, the name of the country and the name of the bank, and its denomination is also indicated on the coin.

The figure shows the coin in such a perspective that one side is clearly visible and the thickness of the coin is visible. The side of the coin does not have any symbols, and you can add them yourself if you wish.

In this lesson, you will train your ability to draw rounded lines and also train your spatial imagination. You can use the acquired skills when you want to draw any flat round object. This instruction includes only five steps that you can easily follow. However, this lesson will require patience, care, and accuracy from you. All lines should be as straight as possible.
