You can get involved by donating to the project HERE.
But the piece will also inclue a view finder - and the pictures in it will represent the best of Coalville.
This will be decided by the public.
It could be a person, a building, an animal, a sculpture, an organisation, or anything else people can suggest.
There are 10 spaces to fill - five will be decided by a community vote and the others will be a bonus for those who donate.
