As I said earlier in the thread:

 

Status update: A minor tweak is required, so orders are now expected to open week of Aug 7th with estimated shipping by Aug 28.

 

We're still on track for this.

crake,

I love this coin (as I do all of your coins) and will definitely pick up at least 2 sets! Thanks for coming up with such great coins (you're not helping my addiction however <_< )! Keep up the good work!

How do you make them translucent like that? :laughing: it is so neat. I am definitley oredering at least one of each!

 

The enamel is called "suncatcher enamel" and I don't know if its the same as transparent enamel (it might be). The design has cutouts, and the mint applies a tape to one side and fills the cutouts with enamel. Then the enamel is cured and the tape removed. One side is flat, and the other side has dips like soft enamel.

New to the geocoin collecting and this is a great looking set. I have emailed my request for both. Now I have to try to understand how you all get the coins you have for trading. Do you buy them all or are some given out. I am sorry to move this in a different direction. But the coin is wonderful and can't wait to see them.

 

RAMBLE RAMBLE RAMBLE......sorrry

I love your coin and would love to get 2 sets of each coin. I'll be on holidays until the 18th so hopefully there will be coins left...or can you put me down for 2 sets of each?

:laughing: LOL Opps, It's not my coin design , I was able to buy one of the production samples at auction from -crake- the designer of this coin and just posted the photo. I'm sure he will respond. My understanding is the coin will be availabe to you at that time though, Glenn Edited by glennk721

No worries - coins will be available for a while. Coins won't be shipping by the 18th anyway, so you'll be the first shipping group unless people go nuts and buy more than I have on hand at the time :)

 

I hope there are some left when I get home from work at 6 (if i go out caching, I may not be home until 9). Shouldn't every employer have internet access?? ;)

It wouldn't surprise me if I go out caching today (day off, whoo!) and come back to find them all sold out...

Wonder how many will be made...

 

Enough to meet demand for 2 months!

 

The link isn't "legal" yet (can't post a link to the store per rules), I need to update the suncatcher coin page and that'll be later tonight.

I have tried tons of times!!! I never got my notification from the mailing list either!!!

I signed back up for the list too!

 

I can't find a single spot that allows ordering!

 

FIXED!

 

I got 2 sets!!!

Just ordered 3 sets!

Wow. $3.80 to ship 6 2" coins. :D

 

Yes - ain't that great? These are very light coins since most of the metal has been removed and since I use a weight-based shipping system the savings get passed on!

Very cool coins, we are new to collecting and I'm sure one each of these would make a unique addition to our sparse collecting :D .

Just ordered one set to head way down south to New Zealand, land of the long white cloud.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SUNCATCHER PREORDERS

 

Due to overwhelming popularity, the stock allocated for pre-orders has been exhausted. Never fear - enough coins will be made to satisfy demand, but they will not ship until mid-September. As paypal does not allow preorders that far into the future, pre-orders have been temporarily suspended. I will email members of the CRAKE mailing list when orders are reopened as well as keep this thread up to date.

 

Pre-orders already on the books continue to be scheduled to ship by Aug 31.
