Xmas 2006 Geocoins

You've got most of my thoughts, but here's a few minor things that come to mind...

 

1) Why not have poinsettias *and* candy canes? One on one side, the other on the other. I like the poinsettias, but lots of folks want the canes; I think you can do both. Try it. See what it looks like.

 

2) Don't forget to shrink Rudolph's ears some, and perhaps make his antlers just a touch larger. He's young, but I don't think he's a yearling.

 

3) re: metals, you should be able to get mock-ups from the coin company. Those will help a lot, I would think, in helping you make up your mind how to go.

 

4) Why not forget the "ray" entirely, and just use glittery stuff in a nimbus in front of his nose? Think of Zero in "The Nightmare before Christmas", when Jack used him to help get through the fog.

 

5) drop the "S" from "Greets"; it doesn't scan as well as "Meet and Greet: North Pole Style". Say it out loud, and you'll see my point. Naturally, I put the colon in for punctuation purposes, which are assumed in your design, and so not needed on the coin.

 

6) Pick a date when you're going to say, "No More Changes!" Then stick with it. These are marvelous designs, and we can nit-pick them to death if we aren't careful :blink:

Love the icon! :( I like the idea of a GPSr in the stocking on the reverse, if you can make it look OK. Another possibility is to have candy canes in the stocking. The price is excellent; I was expecting a little more, so won't complain if the final price is a little higher. Great work all around! I'm in for at least two sets. Wonder if I can get my Christmas money early? :(

I've been following the posts - the coins are shaping up well! Have you considered having a separate icon for each set - eg the candy canes for one and maybe a stocking or an ornament for the other? I don't know how much this would raise the price, but for so many it is all about the icons! :laughing:

 

That might work....

be like maybe $1.00 a set more or so..

 

that may be a good thing.. now to think of the 2nd icon :laughing:

How many of each set will you have minted?

There will be

150 minted in gold

and some limited editidions in other metals

like 10 of each or so

The Christmas holidays are my favorite - and I am dying to give these out as gifts - they look too cool. Plus maybe putting a set around the local area at xmas - that would be a blast to see...

 

I would like 2 sets at least (gold)- would love 3 but I dont want to take a set away from anyone. Hate it when people order a bunch just to sell later. So if you can - 3 but def 2. Thanks!
