2008 Greenback Personal Geocoin/Hummingbird Suncatcher

Recommended Posts

I finally took the leap and had a personal coin made. The inspiration is from a Ruby Throated Hummingbird photograph I took years ago and which I've used in other signature items.

 

I worked with Rusty at personalgeocoins.com and used the translucent enamel similar to the dragon fly coins.

 

They came in the mail a week or so ago and I just finished listing a few on ebay.

The second photo is my effort at photographing the coin with back lighting.

 

Here are a few details about the coin specifications:

1.75 inch diameter

3.0mm thickness

See through *transparent enamel - hummingbird & flowers

laser engraving

Antique Silver finish

Trackable on geocaching.com

Unique icon

Unactivated & Uncirculated

 

If you're interested in seeing the unique icon you can visit my trackable items.

They are beautiful. Is there any way to buy them directly without going thru the e-place?

 

These are a very pretty coin - I, too, would be interested in a direct purchase if possible.

I love the coin! I have a hummingbird feeder that I keep out during the summer months on my deck and just love watching them buzz around. Especially when I'm sitting out there and they come over to check me out. I would definitley be interested in purchasing or trading for one. :ph34r:

Hummingbirds are one of the things that I really miss here in Sweden.

 

They just don't exist here and that makes me a little sad. I used to really love watching them back in Texas.

 

I miss cardinals, too :ph34r:

Thanks for the positive comments! At this time I do not plan to trade the coins as I'm not really a coin collector, though I have a few. My objective is to sell enough to offset some of the cost of having them made. I've had them made in two colors and after I've sold some of the antique silver I'll sell some of the limited edition antigue gold.

I'd rather my money go directly to you instead of e-bay so if you want to sell some I'd be interested in the LE if possible. If not then the AS would be great too!

Great job on that coin! My mother has a hummingbird feeder and gets a lot of 'visitors' at the farm. we also saw a good many of these on a recent trip to Costa Rica. They really are beautiful.

Nice coin. I'd like to purchase a silver (and a gold LE), but I'd rather all the money go directly to you and avoid the "e" place. Could you send out a PayPal invoice?

Pretty coin! :D I placed a bid at the e-place but would also prefer to buy direct. I don't have the funds (or the time to sit by my computer) to out bid anyone. :blink::mad:

Very nice coin. I would like to buy one or two, but I would prefer not to deal with an auction. I can handle eBay, but would prefer a "buy it now price" just to get it over with. Or a separate website for direct orders?

 

Thanks

This is an excellent geocoin that looks great! Congratulations on the inaugural coin. I would be interested in a direct purchase of some sort. I would like at least ten, and LE's if available. Geocoins are a large weakness of mine. I love to release and trade.

 

Outstanding geocoin!

This is a really really nice coin, and I really realy want one of them. But i saw on eBay that you don't ship out side the USA :blink:

 

Is there any chance to get at least 1 shipped across the ocean? (to me of course :unsure: )

 

My english is not that good, but i'll hope you'll understand

I'd be interested in an outright purchase vs the e-place.

Any chance of that occuring?

Not interested in an auction. How about some direct sales at a set price?

I have about 75 left and I'm using them primarily as prizes for events which I host. I've sold two on ebay this year and I'll sell one now and then on ebay. You can watch for the sales by anduril*
