FINALLY MY OWN COIN!

Recommended Posts

Here's the specs:

SIZE: 1 3/4"

Thickness: 3mm

Metal: I think its Zinc!

Color:Shiny Zinc finish

Trackable: Yes (with a Trvel Bug)

Numbered: Yes

Quantity: So far just one!

Cost: about .28 + shp.

 

All the hard work has finally paid off! I have been workin on this design for about 2 minutes and it it finally done! I designed it, minted it, and will be selling it through Cry Wolf coins. i will also be accepting trades! :)

 

This is just a presale, only one is available now...The others will take a few minutes to get back from the mint!

 

This coin also makes a great 5/8 washer- I decided I wanted a coin that was dual purpose, so after the long nights and countless days designing, creating and changing the coin- HERE IT IS!- enjoy!

Again - Ill have to check with the mint!... So far Ive got Stainless steel, Brass requests- The mint is about 10 minutes away, and its the weekend, so there might be a line at the Hardware section!

 

WOW i never thought it would have been so popular- The initial cost was for the first run- the 2nd run will be about .32 to make up for the fuel costs and my time and labor!- sorry!

 

Get em while ya can ---THESE COINS WILL SELL OUT!...again

How about a micro in a similar design?

Yep I will be doing micros as well- The overall size will be 3/4" and can accomodate a 1/4" bolt.

These will not be available for some time now- Ive just been so busy with these that I am gonna take a break from the designs for a while.

I like the placement of the lettering but I might use Comic Sans font :(

 

Ill keep that in mind on the micros-

you should make these trackable on sigitem.com

They are trackable- you just need to attach a TB tag :(

 

Ive expanded my sells!!!!!- You can go to Home Depot and get them there! I just got off the phone with the corporate owner and they have stocked the shelves- all stores will have at least 150 in inventory by the end of today! They expect them to sell out as the demand for 5/8 washers went up with the latest "coin craze" that hardware stores across the US has just been hit with!- GO GET EM!

The coins will be going off to the mint tomorrow :(

The available metals will be

Zinc coated- as pictured

S.A.E. Hardened- (Brass looking...Kinda)

 

I am sorry to say that "Hot dip Galvanized" is only avail. in 1/2" so will not be a metal choice ;)

 

Also Stainless steel will have to be preordered so will not be avail as is also only avail in 1/2" as well

 

Cry wolf coins will be minting the available metals by Mon. or Tues. for anyone that may actually want one of these silly things, You may also get on the "Hope for a Stainless" Band wagon and if I hear of any available stainless steel- it will be included!

 

Disclaimer: These NON Geocoins are NOT to be reproduced- after the 2nd run, the Dies will be retired so supply will be limited! :D

 

:):D:):D:D:D:(:D:):D:D:D:P:P:):P:D

 

Hope yall had a great April fools!

:rolleyes:

A sorta nice one would be the SAE Hardened with black or blue sharpie writing and the cost would be .32 + shp :o

 

- But if you want a real geocoin made you gotta go to an actual maker and have one designed then minted- many factors are involved with the cost- Try www.geocoin-info.net (or google "geocoin") there is a list of retailers that can help you with a coin. Also there are less expensive routes such as pathtags and the new Geotags (that are trackable on GC.com) see the topic in this forum...there pretty cool!

 

And if anyone really does actually want one of these silly little April fools "coins" PM me with an addy- I wouldnt want you to imbarass yourself by posting that you actually want one here! :o

 

Thanks...its been fun!

The XXLE was Numbered 001 so that they could be sold as a set :o ...UH Yeh...a set

 

I figured the GSA could have 2 #196's...so he can do it, but I cant? :o

 

Its the back!

 

Cause Im a Fraud! all my coins will be 001 to make everyone feel special! :rolleyes:

 

You can choose any of the 4 reasons I listed- whatever best fits the occasion in your book! :D

Sorry mark- all presales were ordered yesterday! Fortunatley I only had one presale...and ill bet we all know who that was! :rolleyes: ...Sorry- Maybe next year!

 

The Metric equivelent is 16mm to 5/8" so no changes will be made to better accomodate the rest of the world living in the simpicity of the metric system...you got it easy enough :D

 

As far as the #007 for your buddy-I will have to get with the mint and see what we can do, I think it will be fine. Dave at Cry Wolf coins has been an absolute pleasure to deal with on this coin! He is so easy to work with and the communication is EXCELLENT!....Let me ask............................He said fine! :D

:o:o:D I like answer #1 (sold as a set) -- yeah that's it.

 

Excellent idea for a coin. I missed the pre-order but sure hope I can get in on your 2008 version.

P.S. please put me on the wait list if you have one.
