<Now selling> Joe 6-pack coin

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd run this coin by you guys (and gals) so you could give me your thoughts and/or advice. I've been working with Jamie at Madhattersneverland (great to work with) and this is where we're at. There are no coins for sale yet, I'm waiting until after Christmas & New Years to place the order. They will probably have polished gold and polished silver finishes with a trade only finish to be determined. They will be trackable with their own icon. Price around $8 including shipping (US). I have other coins planned that center around Joe's 'TOTT' and how he might use his special tools. I'm posting it here now so I can benefit/learn from all the coin experts that hang out in here. What do you all think?

Very cool design! Decent price too.

I would never use beer to stand on for fear of damaging it. :(

Hmm, I never like to comment on personal coins (unless they are outrageously over-priced that is) since they are personal.

 

From a design perspective, I personally like a cleaner design and would remove the small tree on the right of the trail/path and lose the sun. But again, tha's just me and the way I like coins.

 

Seems like a great personal coin.

And I agree with 9Key - what are you thinking man?!?!

Is the icon going to be a beer can?

 

BTW, if you had a 12 pack you could be more stable by having a place for the other foot!

Those cans are empty... Joe would never risk losing a full can :D

I'll be discussing the icon with Jamie tomorrow, all ideas are welcome right now.

 

As far as the 12 pack (or slab), Joe has more tricks up his sleeve that may appear on future coins. :(

It appears that it will be a six pack : icon-1.jpg

 

Coins are ordered and will be available in 3-4 weeks.

A small update... the samples will ship this Wednesday. Also, I noticed today that the icon set-up is in the system, although the actual icon isn't there yet. Won't be long now...

The coin design has changed a bit, you can see the latest version by clicking below.

Hey all... I was sent some pictures today of the sample coins. The gold and silver coin pictures have too much glare from the flash so I'm just posting these Black Nickel and Copper samples. I should have the actual coins next week so I'll post some pictures of all of them later.

Okay... great. The order form I was using before was kinda 'quirky', I ditched it and replaced it with a better one that tracks info better. Thanks!

To All: I've been waiting for these coins to arrive before doing an official [NOW SELLING] topic, but I'm afraid that by then they may be almost gone. Nearly half of the coins are reserved now (through the link in my sig line) and there are only 15 copper coins left. Thanks to all of you that have already ordered. :lol:

Here are some pictures of the sample coins. Finished coins were shipped from the mint today.

 

Coins are 1-1/2" diameter, 3.5mm thick, imitation hard enamel finish.

 

Trackable on geocaching.com and they have their own icon.

 

The copper coin is sold out (lower right coin in pictures), Black Nickel (white ring) is trade only.

 

There are about 60 each of the Gold and Silver left (of the 120 each minted)

All invoices were sent out today. If you ordered a coin on the website or reserved one through a post or email and did not receive an invoice today, please let me know.

After totaling up all the invoices, it appears that there are 10 copper coins left. For those people that wanted the copper, you have one more shot at them.
