OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

:) I'm trying to get coins on hand shortly after Chinese New Year. But... things are a bit crazy at the mint right now so I may hold off a tad to make sure everything else gets done before the break.

Wouldn't mind getting ahold of one of these myself. One of the best designs I've seen in a long time.

As always, this looks to be an incredible coin! I'll definitely grab one as soon as you put up some pre-orders, and can't wait to get it!

Ok - I need your help. I admit to being a horrible speller. I've triple checked the Country names on the back of the coin. Illustrator also agrees on the spelling. But being the slightly paranoid person that I am, I need a second and third opinion.

 

Got a few minutes? I'd love for some help :laughing:

~tasia~, OshnDoc, wyohunter - thanks for your quick review. You all get LE versions of Symbology :laughing:

 

Seriously! But you might have to remind me when shipping time comes - things get crazy around here when orders open and coins start shipping!

Wow, great coin!! I didn't realize at first (until spell checking) that the countries on the back were the 50 with the highest number of caches -- very neat. It looks like Argentina (45), Egypt (44), and UAE (44) were the ones that just missed and Namibia (58) and Hong Kong (59) were the last to make it.

 

Can't wait for these to go on sale.

Yup - It took a while to piece that list together. Puerto Rico also just missed the cut. Lithuania just barely made it. Of course the number of caches do change, so this is a snapshot taken a few weeks ago.

I proof read all the countries and found no errors (although I had to check on a few only to find out I've been spelling them wrong for years!). I'm not sure if you did this on purpose, but after 3 counts, unless I added a country I shouldn't have (typed up list and counted, as well as visually on the coin picture), I see 51 countries on the coin. Coin looks great! I can't wait till they're out!

I counted a few times and came up with 50 (but I'm not known for my math skills [;D])

Ok, I need one more person to verify there are 51 and I'll know I'm not crazy... but then again, maybe that's what you all want me to think.... .... ....

 

Chances are we counted a two-word country as two different countries. I'm looking forward to find out the final consensus on how many are listed.

Hmm... this is irking me. I tried counting again and got 50 now. And since others have said they counted 50, I'm guessing I must have counted a two-word country as two countries. Crud. Sorry for the scare.

The spelling and count look good. However, the center text ring of the coin states "50 countries with the most geocaches." Although listed under Country on the Geocaching hide and seek page, Hong Kong is not an independent country.

I didn't want to stir the geopolitical pot when creating this list, and there's more than one hot topic in that sea of names. So I had two options:

 

A: Delete the name of any region/country that is under control or whose control is contested.

B: Keep with the geocaching.com's classification.

 

Given the nature of the coin, I elected to go with geocaching.com's definition of "Country".

So when are the preorder eamils going out or did I miss it? :laughing:

 

Oh no - you didn't miss anything. I haven't taken reservations yet, let alone orders. I need to get through the current coins first!

Pricing info:

 

Antiqued Bronze: $8.40

Antiqued Silver: $8.40

Combo (1 each of above): $16.00 ($8 each)

 

And a special geared towards those who combine orders:

4+2 Combo (2 Antiqued Bronze, 2 Antiqued Silver, 2 LE): $48.00 ($8 ea)

 

Here's how LE's will work. In about a week I will open reservations. 1 week later I will snapshot the reservations, and enough LE's will be ordered to cover reservations at that time. Reservations placed after that point will still be filled, but will not be eligible for LE's. Also LE's will not be reminted after that point (thus the "limited" part of the name :rolleyes: ).

 

So find a partner and combine your order to get your LE! You've got about a week to figure it out :huh:

Is there any chance you can put this off until after Geocoinfest? I don't know about anyone else but I personally will be offline for almost a week and will likely miss the reservation period.

 

Hate to miss a crack at this new crake... :huh:

Oh, good point. The window is open for a week, which should cover those who will be away. It'll probably be Sunday to Sunday.

anyone from the uk fancy combining orders? i would be happy combining with someone from elsewhere but i expect it will be easier and cheaper on postage to keep it in the uk! :):(

I never ordered a geocoin before :lol:

but this one ..... :lol:

Well...

 

I have to have it! :lol:

 

It includes names of two countries I love the most. It is nice to see both of their names on one geocoin. And especially on such an awesome one!

Maybe one of those countries is appearing on any geocoin for the first time. Well I think. Anybody has on overview of those countries? Did all of them already appeared on a geocoin? ;)

 

I can hardly wait to order my set. ;)

can we "do a threesome" :anitongue: from the UK or is there someone else who would wish to combine an order. Does it have to be acombined order as I'd likely to be after 2 sets in anycase. Or is it just with "buddy" orders that are eligible for the special LE ??

 

thanks
