Foxfire949 Coin Considerations

Recommended Posts

I've been considering having my own personal coin made. (I'm sick of buying coins, and want to tade.)

 

I've got a decent idea of what I want my coin to have on it, but my graphic design skills are lacking.

 

On the front, something like this:

and on the back, as close to a recreation of the standard nys dec trail disk as possible:

What do you think?

 

Anyone who put together a coin layout that I end up using would be generously rewarded with a few coins..... :lol:

You got any larger pics of that fire tower or am I going to have to go take a picture of it myself? :lol: Which one is is... I know it's a local one but can't remember which.

I do have a larger picture..but i can't get at it until later tonight.

It's the Azure Mountain tower near St. Regis Falls (St. Lawrence County) A great, short, steep climb. (944 ft. in just under a mile)

I couldn't resist sketching up a digi-version. You could have the tower be 3D, and really make it POP!

The back I sketched is if you only want metal with a minimum of paint, but if you put a lip around the edge of the coin you could fill it will paint to match your marker. Okay...back to REAL work.

You might want to check your spelling. :lol:

But that's some great looking artwork!

I can't believe you've never heard of "Convervation"...It's the latest crave! It's just like conservation, but with more conversing before hand. :lol:

 

Can't believe I let that slip through...sheesh.

I would like to see the wording in a straight line up the side of the tower instead of curved around the edge of the coin. :D edit for spelling

I like big geeks artwork and would definitely want to purchase or trade for that coin. The 3D tower would look very cool.

Ok, this thread hasn't been active for a while, and I was wondering if I missed something...

 

I just got the 3 coins that I ordered. 2 of them were blue, and 1 was red.

 

Is the red something special that I got, or was it something that I ordered? I couldn't find any reference to it.

I got a blue one. I think he said half were red and half were blue. No special reason. If you ordered more than 1 he was going to some of both colors.

Looks like it will be a good coin once you get it designed. I am having a hard time on my own design considerations. I am no help here!

Mine came today and the coin is nothing short of fantastic.... but then it's got a fire tower on it so it can't miss.

 

As a side note my Adirondack Traveler was just placed yesterday on Mt. Azure not far from this fire tower.

Picture?

 

Guess we just got to use our imagination! :cute:

 

WOW!! Those are really nice! :D I really like the way the front is done. The back's not too shabby either. :cute:
