As of May 29, 2011, I have decided on redesigning the achievements badges. During June, every badge had been redesigned.

Note that: This is not a place to discuss suggestions for badges. For that, go to the administration forum.

  5. The dollar coin displayed is the highest that is circulated in the United States. I added the term top dollar for the badge for that reason.
  6. A definition of the word, stellar is wonderful. It is a play on what is displayed on the badge.
  7. William Wyon was the Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint from 1828 to 1851.
  8. Eva Adams was the Director of the United States Mint from 1961 to 1969.
  9. The coin displayed showed an image of a coin inside a coin. See Swiss 100 franc coin.
  10. On the coin, it says, "We Are One", which refers to linking people together, similar to the aspects of categories on Wikia.

  19. Play on post.
  20. Ironically, this badge is of platinum level.
  21. The name explains it all.
  22. This is a play on the Latin term, dicat ave, meaning "Hail to say".
  23. A minter is one who creates coins.
  24. When something is "at large", it is on the loose. To help depict this, I displayed the largest coin ever minted.
  25. The banknote displayed is of high value.
  26. This badge is received for every 1000th edit. Yes, thousandaire is a real word.
