How many 2-Tones were minted?

I was on the website when the sale started, and all the 2-Tones were gone within 1 minute, before I could click on Add Selected Products to Cart. :ph34r:

I'm not sure if I'll be able to get to the second release of the two-tone's... so I"d like to make a trade offer to anyone that may have purchased more than one.

You were supposed to only be able to purchase 1!

The website is now saying "limit 1" on the 2-tones. I am not sure if that was enforced during the first round.

 

I will be at work for the second release. I would be interested in a trade for a 2-Tone as well. ;)

There was a limit of one 2-tone coin per order.

Well, I can assure you it WAS. There were over 90 people on the site when the sale started and I would imagine many did not get the one's they wanted because other folks were faster. That is why there will be more of the two tones in about 3 weeks. The Antique Editions however are advertised as a single minting so when they are gone, they are gone. The second minting will be the last for the two tones as well. Then Thor will go to sleep.

I was able to get the nickel and bronze editions, but copper is sold out. Obviously the two-tone is as well. One question though... the two-tone page says we'll have to wait 3 weeks. Will there still be a second batch available at 8:00 am today?

That was my understanding. It would be nice if someone could address this as I took off time from work this morning to order these. ;)

I didn't take off work. But I did finally get a good night's sleep instead of getting up at 3 AM. Maybe Jim is still asleep from putting them on so late last night! ;)

 

By the way, very nice coin Naomi!

Thanks, ya'll!

 

I'm not sure about releasing more and I think Jim is likely sleeping as he works the night shift ;)

 

I do know that he mentioned that he was giving till around 5pm his time to hear from some folks or something like that.

 

Try to send him an email if you have any questions, I wish I could answer these questions, but I leave the selling up to him ;)

He had put on the forums yesterday-

Only about half of the coins will post at midnight and then I'll add the remaining coins in at about 0800 on April 2nd. This should give both sides of the pond plenty of coins to be able to get. As Naomi pointed out, the Antique Editions will NOT be re-minted so if you want one get 'em while ya can.

So I slept through last night anticipating today.

 

Geesh! I can't believe he would want to sleep some time?!? ;)

Mrs Derschlings thought I was NUTZ for setting the alarm for 2:57 AM... until she saw the pics...

Had one of the 2-tones in the basket... doggone coin jumped out just before I could check out.

Hope to get one of the 2-tones in a few weeks.

Downright FANATABULOUS job there Naomi!

And thanks Jim for keeping the server from crashing.

Keep checking the site, I know that Jim is putting up the FEW, and I do mean FEW that were held in reserve to make sure there were no oversales!

 

I don't know how long they'll last or when he'll put them up, but keep checking!

I never saw any 2-tones up this time. But I believe they will be reminted. Just not the antique finishes. Maybe we will get those on the next run. ;)

So where did you get the idea from?

 

If you'd read the write up I did, you'd see! Most of all the Thor's Hammers that are around are based on Viking artwork from the Viking Era. The face of the one that I did is hand drawn from one of those hammers with some added features like the välknut in the middle at the bottom and celtic knotwork around the edges.

 

The backside is a somewhat modified image that is originally taken from a piece of artwork that no longer was copyrighted and then used by another company. I made some changes to that artwork to make it fit things a bit better.

 

I take my ideas from things I've seen and experienced. Hanna's Thor's Hammer has the face image on it, too. The Owl and Ravens are both a part of the Norse mythology, as well.

 

If you'd like more information I'd be happy to send you in the direction of some good websites on the subject... of course, you may have to brush up on your Swedish, since many of them are på svenska, but for a bright guy like you that should't be a problem, right?

As of right now there are only 9 Nickel and 9 Bronze left. All of the coins were processed and then the overage placed in the web store. There are NO Copper left, only 9 made the store today and left the store in less than 2 minutes.

 

Anyone wanting a 2-Tone edition keep an eye on this thread. We'll announce when they will be available in a few weeks. I will stagger the sales on these by placing a percentage at 0800 PDT, 1600 PDT and 2300 PDT. This should allow anyone sleep or availablility.

Would love to trade for a two tone version if anyone has one they feel the need to trade. I doubt I will be able to log on to try and snag one of these beautys during the posted times, even though I appreciated the spread of times available.

 

Thanks,

THOR IS SOLD OUT!!

 

Naomi and I want to thank you all of you who got in on her design. And as promised I will spread out percentages of the upcoming LAST minting of the 2-Tone Editions so as many people as possible can get at least one. There will be LIMITS of 1 per order to try and allow everyone to get one.

So the "percentages" seemed to work out better and not "crash" the system :laughing:
