  1. There are better options for proxies than just a laminated piece of paper.
  2. The Tengwar and Garmin Colorado are the only two you have that would probably fetch much more than the retail value. Probably about $20-$30 on each, altho the Tengwar I've seen go higher on ebay. The other two are lovely coins, Tuit probably $15 and the Parrot was a contest coin that's non-trackable so for insurance purposes I would also venture $15. If they are activated or not affects the value too.
  3. Apparently getting over 50 versions of artwork takes a while, who knew! We are plugging our way through all the submissions and getting approvals so hang in there!
  4. Don't forget to include your event GC #s on the spread sheet.
  5. I get: [#10171] You do not have permission to view this attachment. Is this in conjunction with the release of the book?
  6. Hey Nuno, I already sent you an email a month ago explaining all the reasons why, I am sorry you are not part of this project. Best regards, Mark Avroair

  8. Here's a layers file to show what is semi raised (gray areas).
  9. There are people and vendors who make quality proxies out there so the excitement of the find can be experienced even if it isn't the actual coin.
  10. Yes, This too, please!! CF30 Yep. I have given Micheal a file without the lines and with 50% gray to show semi-raised.
  11. Anyone who hasn't got an invite yet: I don't see an email with your Email address, name, cacher name, and location. can you resend to Michael@oakcoins.com There will be a second email going out with address, trade opt-in and minting quantities later next week.
  12. The information if for signing up for a unique version of the coin.
  13. If I have a left over then you can have one. The event is in two weeks, can't wait!
  14. B0tl's Multi Event coin list Working on the mint with the design and should have color by numbers up this week.
  15. I love the digital. I am using the same sort of thing on one of my upcoming event coins so I steered away from it, but I think it looks great. Out with the old (Mayan) in with the new (Atomic!)
  16. Here's an FAQ: A gallery of previous multi-event coins can be seen: Here. B0tl's coins What is a multi-event? A multi-event is a group of event locations that share the same theme and geocoin (with the same icon). Who can host an 11-11-11 Multi-event? Anyone! An individual, geoaching organization or group. Are there any restrictions on where I can host my event? The event format is totally up to you. The only rule is that events that don't share the same color combination be more than 100 miles apart. Two events with the same color/metal combination have no distance restrictions. What if two people would like to do an event but they live within 100 miles? Avroair stays out of regional disputes. I would suggest the two hosts work together on the same coin or find some other solution amicably. Preference will be given to a veteran event host over new host if parties can't agree. Options such as sharing a coin, moving events further apart or dropping one event have worked in the past. Who designs the coins? Avroair, although the design is posted in the forums and critiqued by the other hosts. The design is meant to be versatile so that many color and metal combinations are available. The coins are trackable at GC.com and have a custom icon shared by all the versions. Avroair is open to other people's designs. What can I customize (what will make my coin unique)? There are two main options: 1. Choice of metal finish (antiquing adds to the cost) 2. Choice of color enamel fills. The color options include sub-options like glitter, glow, translucent and pearl enamels. Some of these options add to the costs to the coin. What's the minimum order size? Minimum order is generally 50 coins. But there is a price break for ordering 100 coins. There is also a 25 coin buy back program where you can opt to have the vendor sell them for you. This is available before you get your coins. How much do the coins cost? Depends on what options you use. But typically starts at $6.00 per coin. The hosts decide on the retail price as a group. The 12-12-12 coin will probably be large and intricate. How do I pick colors, metal and enamels? Avroair will provide a 'color by numbers' outline of the coin artwork used for picking colors and enamels. What happens if two hosts submit exact or similar colors? The host who handed in their colors second will be asked to alter their colors. Will we see mint artwork? Yes, you will have a chance to approve mint artwork to make sure colors are correctly chosen. But there is no opportunity to change your colors at that stage, just confirm they are correct. Will we get a sample? Only if time permits and we only do samples of the first 2-4 coins submitted. When will the coins be delivered? Two weeks before your event. You will get a shipping notice when this happens. How much is shipping? Depends based on whether you are an international event host and how many coins you ordered. How can I trade to get more of the versions? There will be an opt in where each event host gets one of every other version that opted in. For instance if we have 40 versions, 25 hosts opt in, then 24 of your coins will be put in the opt in and you get 24 different versions, one from each event host. Can I pre-sell the coins? Reservations for coins is allowed, but these are event coins, they should be sold at an event. Can I trade them before the events? Only with other hosts. It's preferable not to have them sold on the open market before 12-12-12. Can I buy a coin version for my shop and sell them? No, please refrain from just commercially selling them on a website. This is an event coin, please take the time to list an event. If you have leftovers then it's fine to sell them on a webstore, other events or ebay etc. What should I do with extra coins after the event? Anything you want, they are yours. Trade, sell, melt down...
  17. Ok back to the coin. I have incorporated some of the changes. Other's like the font I think look fine as is, there are a bunch of different languages on it so you aren't supposed to be able to read it lol! For the back I am at a bit of a loss. We can do a digital theme with 12-12-12 big across the back, and a 12-sided star burst that could look pretty cool and would also be cool to color. Any other ideas? I will be working on the design today and early next week.
  18. 13 deadly sins of caching... on Friday the 13th we are having 13 events.
  19. LMAO! Two front sides it is!
