I thought there was also a black nickel version. There's one shown in the picture on the compassrosegeocoin site.. Will that be sold anywhere?

You mean this one?

Black Nickel 2-Tone

On the compass Rose website, it was said it would be sold on Ebay.

Newbie question here. Why would you have the sales of these coins on 2 separate websites? Getting charged twice for shipping/handling makes me less inclined to order all the versions of coins. At this point, I'll likely just stick with the antique silver ones that I already reserved.

I guess this qualifies for an artist's edition. But, man, that's rich!! Congrats to you for fetching such high bids.

That's a shame that vendors are now making ebay only editions.

Sorry if I gave the wrong impression that Ebay was the only place to get them. There are a couple of other ways to get your hands on one. Like so many times with the really hot coins, it takes being in the right place at the right time.

Congrats Yime on a great design. This coin is awesome!!!!

I do not have a clue. That's part of being in the right place at the right time. I can tell you it was not sold to me. Well except the blood he had me put on this contract and something about my soul. But when it comes to a geocoin you really want, should the price matter?!? :huh:

I think the blood was because he ran out of ink. The soul part must have had something to do with your exceptional music talent...but aren't you really a country fan?! ;)

This years design is awesome - congratulations Dave.

 

Would love to snare a personal edition :)

 

I am also interested to know the history behind the split sales between Coins and Pins and USA Geocoins. Could someone enlighten us please... or is this a can of worms that should not be opened?

Congrats to Yime on another great design and a very successful auction. Congrats also to the lucky winning bidder.

Very Nice....I thought when I opened the link and it was going to be some YY humor, not so much, spectacular coin and auction.

 

Maybe next time I am in town I can get a peek at one ....PPPPPPPLLLLLEEEEEAAAASSSSEEE. <_<

Thanks to all for the kudos!

 

Although I will be putting a few more of these up on eBay, I'd like everyone to know that this will certainly not be an "eBay only" coin.

 

I've been the beneficiary of many acts of kindness from fellow geocachers and geocoiners in recent times. So, although I can't make one available to everyone...everyone will have a chance to own one through either a cointest, or a random act of idiocy on my part.

 

I've got a bunch of projects crossing my screen, so it might be a while before that happens. But I do promise that someone, somehow, will hold a YimeRose up to their nose...and enjoy the smell of "free".

Congrats YY!! That was a very successful auction!

 

Yeah it did really well Yime, but I think yours may do even better 4damFam! ;)

I heard that you can squeeze one over a margarita for a little extra splash.

 

I think these boards are going to be frought with people slamming on the F5 key for a while in hopes of getting one of these.

I clicked on the link to your personal version and my 6 year old tells me that she likes it. Can I get it for her? i just smiled and told her that maybe some day I will get one :unsure::(:)

 

Let's just hope she forgets!
