NAWWAL Tengwar Geocoin

Recommended Posts

I did not receive a newsletter about the new Tengwar coins but I am on the mailing list because I did receive the letter sent to everyone about the TOL delay.

I, too, received the email about the Celtic Tree of Life delay, but nothing about the Tengwar pre-sales. I found out about those on the forums, and got two of each so I can trade when these come in.

Some people received two of the NAWWAL email and others didn't receive any. Sorry about that guys, my emailer just had a bad day I guess!

shameless little bump off page 4 to make sure you all don't miss out

 

:wub: Hmmm only a couple of days left on the remint presale :wub:

 

Don't miss out!!! But if you do I'll have a couple for trade :lol:

 

That is when I build up enough courage to press PAY on my shopping cart order, I have been rather greedy but they are all so darn nice!

A lto of people seemed to wait until the last day :rolleyes:

 

It looks like this meager remint is going to total to more than the entire first minting on my Tree geocoin (:

I placed a last minute order as well. As a new Cacher, I am glad I found this thread today! I will certainly be back for more coins.

Just a teaser to anyone interested (sorry!)

 

You all are going to flip when you see the tengwars coming in a few months :rolleyes:

 

Its a serendipitous finish from another coin project I did that I'm going to try and apply to the tengwar.

 

Who knows, maybe they'll just end up a goofy just-for-fun version in the end, but they look dang good in my head.

 

Waiting for samples...

Yep it should. No news of anything wrong with this minting, so lets hope that no news is good news :rolleyes:

I'm so anxious to get these. I just love them. I did order three of them and got my confirmation but was a bit concerned when I went to your site to check my order and it said I didn't have any. I'll be patient and wait, but it is soooooo hard.

I set a new personal record at the post office today, there was a line 30 people long behind me and all the workers came over to watch the lucky teller hit the total button :(

 

All but 5 or 6 orders have been mailed (various reasons - they will be mailed out tomorrow). All the customers should receive a confirmation email in the next day or so as I go back through the mailing records and mark orders as shipped on my website. Its a little cumbersome, but it minimizes mistakes on my part :D

 

All special orders and all trades have been mailed as well B)

 

Sorry Oz, you were numero dos! Better luck next time :huh:

 

In fact, for the first time in tengwar history for me, the aussies as a whole weren't the largest recipients of international orders. Portugal came up real big in my customs forms this time!

 

International orders really tipped the scale all over. Its been 50:50 domestic:international on my coin sales so far, but today I'd say it was 35:65. Is that the norm for others? I'm happy with it now that I made an excel file to print out the customs forms anyway!

For some reason the tracking/activation codes for the lates tengwars are not yet updated into coincodes.com. I have submitted the request but with it being a holiday weekend I wouldn't get your hopes up for them in the next few days :(

Thanks for the update.

 

We're so happy to have these beautiful coins that waiting a few days to get activation codes isn't going to be a big deal. :o

 

From the pictures I thought the purple on silver was going to be my favorite but I'm leaning toward the red on gold.

Two of the coins have just completed their journey and landed here on our doormat in south Wales U.K. and they're lovely - thank you!

 

I had a particular reason for getting one of them: Our daughter (who is an "occasional" geocacher) has recently returned home after doing the student-travelling-around-the-world thing. While she was in Australia she got a tattoo done along the side of her foot - It reads "Not all who wander are lost" so I intend giving her one of these geocoins as a birthday present in a few weeks time. :unsure:

That is great, MrsB!

 

I first came across the phrase while traveling as well. I was on my own, going through europe as a teenager, and some of the books I brought with me were Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. The first book is where the quote originates in a poem:

...All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by the frost...

 

I hope she likes the coin :unsure:

I don't currently have any, but I believe you said you were sending me an error coin that was 1 of 9 made (the Opaque Purple on Satin Nickel?) for correctly guessing your receipt length.
