Beautiful, very nice coin. Reserve one for me. What does the icon translate to?

 

The icon translates out to "dream" (just like the symbol on the backside of the coin).

Are you gonna be doing trades?

 

Yes we will be doing trades. We will probably only be trading about 25 coins total.

Very nice design :( We're in for a couple, at least. Looks like antique silver would be a good choice, and maybe black nickel. As much as I love copper, I'm not sure if that will fit with the design colors.

Here are the finishes we have ordered for samples.

 

antique gold

nickel

black nickel

brassy gold

antique bronze

chrome

 

More and likely the final coin won't have an antique finish, due to the cost of having the coins minted. There will possibly a very small amount of LE coins minted though.

Edit: I see that a list of possible finishes has been posted :( Antique bronze might work well. I think some folks would be willing to pay a bit extra for antique finishes. What would the price difference be?

Good question. We only got a quote for nickel (which was our initial decision). We are paying for these coins out of pocket and don't have much movement when it comes to adding additional expenses like antique finishes. We'll ask for a quote request for the antique finish and see what the difference is.

Very nice coin :( We will be keeping an eye out for this one, should be in for a couple.

 

Would be interested in seeing it in Black Nickel.

Just to make this easier on us, we will post a thread taking reservations after we figure out pricing.

 

As for trades, we will only be trading approximately 25 coins, and we will start that process once the final coins are in our possession. (Our geocoin wishlist can be found on our profile page).

 

Coins should be available by late March (depending on how things go).

 

Sorry if we are making things difficult, but we didn't realize how overwhelming selling/trading personal coins could get. :(

 

Thanks for your patience!

And we appreciate that you are being candid about it B) Every time we see a post such as this, we begin to wonder whether we really want to issue our own PC or not ;)B);)

 

BTW: good idea about waiting to do the reservations B) I'll try to keep an eye on this. We'd definitely like a couple.

Posts like this should definitely not keep you from issuing your own PC. :D It's actually kind of nice to see how much interest can generate from something you dreamed up.

 

Still undecided about the price, but that will more and likely change as soon as we see the samples. Once the final order is submitted is when we'll probably start taking reservations.

The coin samples arrived today, and by late tonight we'll probably have decided upon the final plating choice. Hopefully by tomorrow or Saturday we'll start taking reservations.

We will try and post some pictures later tonight or tomorrow evening. I tried scanning the coins, but it doesn't do the coins justice, so we are having a friend to come over and take pictures after he gets out of work. <_<

Here are pics of the final finishes we chose (not including the LE's, they'll remain a secret for now) :P

We're not taking reservations just yet, there are some things we need to work out first, but we're hoping within the next few days that will happen. (Thanks to geoRickS for taking the pics!)
