  5. In my opinion, there are different types of collectors, each has their priorities and personal tastes. However, what unites them all is the object, the collection itself. In this case geocoins Any collection acquires more value (I do not mean financial) if has the more rare pieces. In my case, I recently started my collection of geocoins because they have a special attraction since discovered that, buy the geocoins that I like (when I can), but if called RE, LE, AE, I do not care, but sometimes overlaps. I don't collect all the editions of a coin (too much expensive), however, I'll start to acquire limited editions (if they like me). Because they are more easy to change with some geocoins that I want to have, but are already Sold Out, or they are HTF, or VHTF, or have exorbitant prices, and so no change if not for a piece of similar value as a rarity, not economic. Although this is often the same (sometimes speculation, we know). We all know that there is always speculation about any human activity. I will not go into their game, I hope so!. I like art, beauty and the message contained in these little gems. I will shortly put on sale a few pieces of my first design, but I'm not going to speculate with them, at least within the acceptable limits, as a means to create another design, and to trade with others. Trade, exchange, good, speculation only within certain limits.
  6. No, It was my mistake, wrong file name. BTW, go now to geocoinstore. Thanks!
  7. More details From left to right and top to bottom: Antique Silver Antique Copper Matte Gold Antique Gold Shiny Gold
  8. Here are the samples photos The one I like is the AC, but also others, ...all of them are my first little creations. I think that samples arrive in 2 weeks, and then start reservation. FRONT BACK
  9. look very cool! can you put a perfil photo?
  10. Is really a very good idea!! I'm interested Thanks!
  11. Beautiful design!. Reserved 2. Thanks!
  12. I have a question. I thought about the possibility of sandblasting only the central part (area of the planets), ... Can it be fine? I would like to know your experience about it as designers. Thanks
  13. I just thought of another possibility. Maybe the star is the central fire, and the surrounding planets include earth, the anti-earth, the sun, and the moon. I always found that model of the universe captivating. The central fire and the anti-earth are too cool. The earth is in perpetual eclipse due to the anti-earth and the sun is just a reflection of the true light source. There are at least a third possible explanation for this sumerian graph. The sumerians wrote on clay tablets that the solar system is composed of ten planets. The 9 officially known until now, and another which is a huge elliptical orbit, highly inclined relative to the plane in which the other planets revolve around the sun. This is called Planet X, or tenth planet, on which there is much debate and controversy, in official and unofficial. In this draw that I have put, which comes from a Sumerian representation about 6000 years ago, the tenth planet is very small and does not look good. In the drawings that I have put of the other possible versions, is a point up on the right. I hope that in the samples look better. Over time, the official science advances in knowledge, and discover things that the early civilizations knew, things that were lost in time ... and at libraries destroyed, as in Alexandria. Thanks for your interest. I was looking at the diagram closely and did notice the tenth point, but it was so small that I thought it was probably some sort of stray pixel, so I assumed it wasn't really there. The ten planets of the ancients. That may be closely related to the second choice that I offered. The ten planets, which include the anti-earth were popularized by Pythagoras, but I would not be surprised to learn that the idea is even older. Of course, Pythagoras' count included the moon and the sun orbiting around an unseen source of warmth and light and the sun was really a mirror reflecting the central fire's light. As to the tenth planet, you might want to look up "Eris" in Wikipedia. This small planet orbits our sun and is slightly larger than Pluto. In fact, it even has a moon named Dysnomia. When the dwarf planet was first discovered, it was called "Xena". The discoverer chose this name because it began with an X and he felt that this planet was the long sought for planet x. However, the name Xena was rejected by the International Astronomical Union. There are actually a large number of dwarf planets in our solar system that are similar in size to Pluto. You may also wish to look up "Kuiper Belt". Greek sages, learned from the wise Egyptian and Mesopotamian. Much of the information that came to them then it was lost in part. Over time and with the loss of their origins, these skills were seen as symbols and mythologies, ... until today I know the work of Pythagoras, and others. I read about Xena, the Kuiper Belt, and other related topics. I think the tenth planet is another, and that is out there ... NB: Perhaps this issue here is off-topic Regards

  15. Well!, after almost a sleepless night, I've finally reviewed the color scheme that was pending, ...here it is This will be the AE, probably in AC. For the interested: I'll keep puting news about changes of this geocoin, until their minting
  16. Short History The Winged Disc Geocoin This coin represent the first three great civilizations, who are the cradle of Humankind. The star and the planets represent the Sumerian civilization. This graphic comes from clay tablets thousands of years old. I have not been in Mesopotamia to find them, ... although I would have liked to be there in real time, when they were writen. The figures and hieroglyphs represent the Egyptian civilization. I also would have liked to sail on the Nile and being in the Temple of Dendera thousand of years ago ... but who knows ... maybe I do not remember it The petals represent the Hindu civilization. ...Lost in the immensity of the Indus Valley, when Mohenjo Daro and Harappa teemed with life and splendor! The winged disc is a symbol that we find represented at different times of the three civilizations. Some are very complex, which I have set is greatly simplified. Hence the name of the geocoin. The latest archaeological discoveries, linguistic, genetic, ...show that there was a close relationship between the great civilizations, from the beginning, and had a common origin, which represent the men eagle. I would have filled the side A of the geocoin with many details, but it seemed good to leave it, so that the winged disc could stand out from the bottom, and in the background, above the record, men eagle, that brought civilization, ...where are they now? On the B side, there are two symbols, among the egyptian figures, on opposite sides, which are East and West, the rising and setting sun ... another allusion at winged disk and what it represents. I'm talking about side A and side B as if it were a music album This is because sometimes one would prefer the B side to the A, although the idea is represented on both sides. Other times it's hard to say which side you prefer. Well, this is the short history of this geocoin. As for the pin that goes with the coin, possibly will have the winged disk image, and above, the image of the sun and the planets. Also possibly, around the edge, the sacred lotus of the Nile, much used by the Egyptians in their paintings, sculpture and architecture. Its symbolic meaning is also widespread, although it basically represents, the rising sun and setting sun. Regards
  17. Finally , this will be the RE Plating nickel or perhaps in shiny silver. In black nickel I like, but this way can see better the symbols that are among the birds, and among the figures in the other side. The LE in purple and yellow remains unchanged. The AE in blue, green & red, ...I'm reviewing tones. The Track Number will be in the edge. The icon of this three versions will be the same as the version made exclusively for the club members of Oakcoins, their oak leaf I think I'll be able to post pictures of the samples in early December
