Recommended Posts

Still want one of each finish if there is more than one or at least two coins if there is only one finish. :anitongue:

For us pre-planners: any chance on you being able to give a price and shipping cost on these beauties?

 

:lol:

 

Please let the tracking be on the side, as I would hate to lose any of the artwork.

By "side", ATMouse means the edge of the coin. And I agree, you should put the tracking info on the the coin edge and not mess up your beautiful design. :lol:

Yes, we got the side part the first time :)

 

Yes, we plan to put the tracking info on the edge of the coin.

This is one of the things that makes the coin more expensive. As we have to do 3 dies. One extra for the edge. :mellow:

 

We do not know the price yet. The mint have announced a metal price raise on april 20th. We will try to keep you posted.

We don't know the shipping yet either. We know it will be a heavy 2" coin.

Yeah, I know. We don't know much. B)

But one thing we do know. We want to make this Coin!

Status report:

We talking to the mint about the making of the samples.

The price went up 10% on the 20th. The mint also have added some extended area surcharge to the freight fee. <_<

 

We are waiting for the mint to produce drawings for the dies.

The design on these is so intricate and well done. When they are ready to go up for sale, I would like some. Thank you.

You should be able to hold them to your original quote - if it was a firm quote and not just an estimate. :lol:

It was an estimate and we will make some changes.

 

But today is a great day.

We got the sketch for the die!

Check this Baby out!

We will be making some changes. We may do some other platings for the samples to.

We are pretty new at this so we are open to suggestions.

Another amazing coin, Hans! Gonna have to make some space next to my Swedish Mooses (Meese?) for this one!

:huh: SWEEEEEEET!!! This is one coin that (...I think - may change mind once I see samples...) will look better with the enamels than without. Or antique copper/no enamels... :) Can't wait until you have the samples! :D

The symbols are from objects found in excavations of Birka.

Great page! I shall try to make a page for the coin.

Ladies and Gentlemen...

we are ready for sample production. :):):)

 

We had to make some changes. The factory could not make the coin with center 3D art together with Imitation Hard Enamel. We did not want soft enamel so we made the center 2D.

4 different samples will be made:

  • 2-tone Gold & Silver with Imitation Hard Enamel & transparent IHE.
  • Gold with IHE & transparent IHE
  • Antique Silver no enamel
  • Gold & Foggy Gold no enamel

oh my, these are gorgeous!

 

but i have a little question. on the web site it says "Trackable at geocaching.com with own icon.

Moose in 3D on the back.

Custom prefix "SE"."

 

but for the life of me, i don't see a moose. is there a moose? is it a hidden moose? kinda hard to hide a moose.

 

either way i have to budget for at least one.

 

i need a budget.

It looks like it could be that they cut/paste from the above html (the Swedish Moose) and missed removing the bit about the moose on the back.

Anyone know if these will be available after pre-sale? Or how long the pre-sale goes on for? These are must haves for me, but unfortunately find myself presently in a position where 'must have geocoin' simply can't carry as much weight as it did a day or two ago B)

 

Any info appreciated (or I suppose I can just email the vendor <_< This is just so much easier)
