Today I want to introduce a crazy idea which came up in a German facebook group and developed into a real geocoin. It all started when someone offered to equip some old pretzels with tracking codes and sell them on ebay. Inspired by the discussion the first „Brezen Geocoin“ Design occured as a joke and then was improved by increasing community of Pretzel Addicted.
So finally we decided to put wood behind the arrow and find enough people so the coin can be produced.
For those of you are able to understand German, all informations could be found here: http://mietzecacher.de/brezen
And here is a translation with main facts:
- trackable and own icon:
- each edition has quantity of 20, 25 or 30 coins (neither less nor more)
- 3mm thick
- all editions are LE
- NO remints, NO 2nd batch... Molds will be destroyed or sent to me (belongs to shipping costs)
- choose your own edition till 19th Feb. 2013
- mint will check each edition and send me final quote
- mathtrade (further details later)
- shipment (end of April/early May)
Prices (in bracket without 19% VAT):
Price per coin is 8.00€ (6.72€) and includes 10 gems + 2 colours (pantone or transparent) for front and one colour (pantone or transparent) for back.
20 Coins: 160€ (134,45€)
25 Coins: 200€ (168,07€)
30 Coins: 240€ (201,68€)
Additional options have to be paid extra:
glow: 0.35€ (0.30€) per coin
glitter: 0.35€ (0.30€) per coin
pearl: 0.55€ (0.65€) per coin
antique finish: 0.85€ (0.72€) per coin
two tone: 1.10€ (0.93€) per coin
Example: 20 Coins (160€) with 2 glitter colours (2*20*0.35€) and antique finish (20*0,85€) is: 160€ + 14€ + 17€ = 191€ (~160.50€ w/o VAT)
(For payment via paypal you have to add 3.00€ for paypal fee, sorry!)
