Geocoin Peacock

Recommended Posts

Newartwork.jpg

 

Here is the artwork for a coin I am minting. There will be

 

100 made. I am waiting for samples from the mint, when I get them I will post them here for everyone to

 

see. I will choose the metal when I see the samples. If this goes well and people want more, I would be

 

happy to do another round as a pre-order. They will be around $13 including shipping. Interested in

 

feedback and would be happy to answer questions!

Congrat's on getting your 1st personal coin :ph34r: How exciting! Peacocks are beautiful birds... should turn out real pretty.

 

Too funny though, I know I had the peacock coin design discussion with someone else a couple weeks back, lol. Wonder if more will be showing up?

OH Ble68, Your coin is Very nice. :( I guess with you only sellinng 100, there won't be an unique icon.

 

Is the coin "smooth" or "textured"? :ph34r:

I already know of two other peacock coins in sampling, but neither are a personal coin.

I almost didn't click on this thread because I thought, great another silly April Fool's joke. Very nice design Ble68, I love the sun.

There was another thread recently where someone said you can now get an icon for 100 coins. I don't know if this was ever confirmed or not though.

 

Lovely coin. Great idea. ;)

I believe it was NOT!! ;) It's still 250 as far as I know...and I asked for assurance as I'm currently having a coin made!

Can't decide which I like the best..... probably the Black Nickel... but only just.

 

They look awesome. Congratulations. :laughing:

I like the black nickel from the pictures, but if I were you I would wait to pick metals until you have the samples in your paws. Last time I didn't wait, the coins in hand were entirely different than in pictures and I would have chosen differently.

 

Nice looking coin!

They're both nice, but from the photos, the text seems to stand out much better with the gold.

 

Silver nickel might also be nice as far as contrast. I don't know if you saw a sample of it though.

It's a beautiful coin.

 

Can I be a downer (a downer and a professional proofreader and editor) and say that the sentence is not grammatically correct? Should be

 

It is beauty that captures your attention, personality that captures your heart

 

OR

 

It is beauty that captures your attention; personality captures your heart

 

Now that you have the samples, if the wording can't be changed I am sure only those of us who are persnickety grammar mavens will notice. But if it can easily be changed, all the English majors will thank you!

It is too late to be changed now (sorry). I got that from here http://thinkexist.com/quotation/it-s_beaut...tion/12757.html It is a quote :ph34r: Thanks

Surely "It's" refer to the peacock and is possessive.

We are not talking about "beauty" but the "peacock"

"It's" = "peacock's beauty" so it does seem correct grammar, just shortened to fit.

I believe they are also talking about the "which" in the quote.

I thought I was mostly a BN kinda guy, but recently, I've been liking the gold finishes. I bet this would look great in an antique silver or polished nickel as well.

they are both beautiful, my fave would have to be the BN though, I love BN and copper coins!

Nice Job! :ph34r:

Very cool coin! Gonna have to get some of these too! There goes my money again!

I got the samples in the mail today! The gold looks much better! Those pictures don't do the coin justice. In the BN you can't read the words and everything looks extremely dark. I plan on minting it in gold but was wondering if there was interest in silver...
