I love it. Although, the center hand doesn't seem to be actually holding the coin. And the other hands seem to be floating/dismembered.
Yeah, you can do better on the hand. Get your camera out and photograph your own hand holding a pot lid or something, then mask out the finger areas from the coin and put in a shadow effect MANUALLY.
Will look real! Also, more hands in the background with different layers of opacity, with hands ending at the page border.
I just watched Ironclad and this made me think of hands being chopped off.
