  1. So that's a good idea. The first micro organisms were cute. But now ?
  2. Hi! I have a complete set of Astro Coins available for trade. If you are interested in the whole set or single coins only, please email me via my profile! You may take a look at my trading list in addition. Rainer
  3. well, there is a list. i am working on photographing my collection since it was the first to be a complete set of all editions made. still only two complete sets out there. rsg And you are the better photographer! That other guy only produces crappy pictures
  4. Sounds like something completely new. As a Tranq fanatic it will be interesting to see how the coin will be improved. Maybe I should start saving some budget already
  5. 1. They were designed by Paula from geocoindesign.com 2. They were sold at castlecoinsandpins.com 3. The coins came in several portions. There is a special TQ thread in this forum discussing all the available versions. Maybe you can have a look there. As far as I know no new versions will be minted, but usually you will find are some on ebay or should be able to trade for them. And better don't try to get them all... Rainer
  6. I think the first round of microorganisms didn't have an influenza virus. That one is not Micro. Rainer
  7. Just for those of you who wonder about the high shipping costs: That's exactley what the German post wants to have for a coin shipped outside of Europe. The charges were increased at the beginning of this year again. This is also the reason why I don't trade that much any more. Shipping is worth a coin now!
  8. Here are mine. Also in no particular order: - Any Bavaria Geocoin - 1701eh Memorial - Compass Rose 2008 Yime Edition - North/South Pole - Templar Black Nickel I know, it's actually six coins, but the poles should go together
  9. first time i have seen this post! i wondered if you were going to mention you HAVE THEM ALL!!!!! so now you have to get some of them again. the newer ones have a slightly different colour. or you could decide to not collect any longer. except for the occasional splendid coin. rsg What? Are you kidding? But I won't start getting them all over again just due to slightly different colors. No, no, no.
  10. I do have one available, but due to the tremendous shipping costs from Germany to the US you should try to find someone closer to your home. If you do not succeed, please feel free to contact me! Rainer
  11. *drool* Need to have! Another great design!

    Unlogged Geo Coin

    To my knowledge there are at least two Canada coins. One with colors that is trackable on geocaching.com and one that is just metal (from 2002), which was the first commercially available trackable coin. The latter one is trackable on geocoins.ca.
  13. The text is latin, that's for sure. But the times I may have translated that are way past. What I found is that this text is indeed used as a placeholder.
  14. As far as I know the coin was sold by geocachingshop.de. And to my knowledge the activation code was supplied with the coin. So maybe you can contact the shop and ask if they still have it in a database. Whitby.
  15. It's done! During my holidays I finally received the last TQ! Thank you to all the nice people out there who helped me to complete this task! So what to collect now???
  16. Today I received my second mission. A Highwood Pass coin from gardengorilla. But the best thing is the Penguin ehm, Koala bear christmas card. I love it! I just have to visit Australia once an see all the great animals that live there. Thank you to gardengorilla and Maine Family for the cards and coins and Butterfly lady for setting up this great mission!
  17. Finally I got my two missions ready to go. One coin will go to the east and one to the west, but both of them will have quite a distance to travel. I hope they'll make it in time! I already received a Wonderful Discoveries coin from Maine Family. Thank you!

  19. That sounds like a lot of work, but seems to be a great idea!
  20. Hard to tell. From my experience everything between 5 days and 6 weeks is possible. I'd recommend getting the mailers out as soon as possible. There will be huge piles of Christmas mail.
  21. I realized that international mail from Germany will also be going up next year. But there may also be some restructuring of weight groups, so some mailers could even be cheaper! I'll have to find out.
  22. I have to admit that I didn't read the whole thread, but here is what I have in mind about your sales. It's great that your designs are loved by everybody and therefore lots of people want to have the coins. So the demand will be higher than your stock. Limiting the amount to 2 per person is great for me. That gives more people the chance to get a coin and still allows for trading. Which is part of the fun! I like the way you handle your sales (besides cart issues that you already discussed). Not everyone will be able to get a coin, but as long as you limit the total number that will be the case. Maybe you can increase the number of coins minted a little. If you have a cart system that automaticaly prevents people from buying coins as soon as they are gone you could put portions of the total stock for sale at different times, so more people could have a chance to buy them. So in my eyes you should just continue designing that great coins and selling them the way you do right now.
  23. The codes are now up. However the coins start with CP not TU. Thanks, Eric That's strange. All the ones I have start with a pretty random pair of letters such as AD, FA, VI, NU, etc. Could that be the activation codes they put on the coins?
