Is that the correct photo? They say 2007 on the front (unless I need to get my eyes checked).

Neat coin!

Um,yah. It is weird. Especially since it says these are the 2007's. All the info I read about them said there were 50 minted. Are the 2008 coins different or a remint with a different year on it. I'm coinfused.

2008 coins have not been made yet. I think at first there were only so many minted

 

and they did a remint. Not sure on the quantities though.

yes they are keewee, i was apart of the group that designed and made the coin. We tried to, at first, do the northern lights in enamels by have 3 different colors and have then blend into each other. A problem arose with that so that idea was scratched. Some one got the idea of using a photo so a googling we did go and found a great picture of the northern lights. We got permission from the person that took the photo and then Rusty at personal coins cut out part of the photo and used it in the coin. Basically we used a sticker on the back and covered it with epoxy. In the end the coin turned out very cool looking and the first trackable coin for the MnGCA.

Thanks for that. Brilliant idea. Going by the photo it looks like it worked really well... and we all know how much better again the coins look in person over a photo! :rolleyes:

The northern lights are actually printed right on the top of black hard enamel.

The outlines of the trees are actually metal.

 

This made a great effect that I haven't seen on any other coins.

 

It was a tall order for Rusty to fill but he did it!!!

Yes these are beautiful coins.

Both in look and feel.

You won't be disappointed.

 

How much is international shipping?

I should have added that the 2007 coins will not be reminted after these last ones are sold out.

When these are gone that is it for the 2007 coin.

 

Of course we may have a 2008 version in a few months. ;)
