As other have posted, not all private mint are a step down since Official Mint artists that retire go to work at private mints.     Mostly w/ the early years.......     Wish the artists like Chen Jian/Feng Yunming/etc..  would have a book or article w/ all the coins/medals they have designed or helped design....
