So what are you going to do, let DJ tease the rest of us who are dancing from one foot to the other in anticipation of your releasing these special coins? That is just downright brutal! Where are the pictures???

Ha ha, yep :(

 

Really though, I'm posting from a little 5x5' study room at the medical campus trying to prepare for a neuro-adrenergic organ systems exam tomorrow (sounds fun, huh?). My coins are at home for the time being so no pics from me until after my exam (and some sleep) tomorrow :huh:

I'd have got back to you guys yesterday but I had to fix the lawnmower then mow the yard. I only got about three quarters of it done, didn't get any of it raked. When I get that finished I still have to take the weedeater to the entire perimeter to knock back the blackberries and poison oak, then pick up all the downed limbs and debris from the winter. Then last night, just after I stepped out of the shower, my wife came to tell me that the dryer isn't heating up so I get to replace the heating element or buy a new dryer, TODAY! And I'm having a heck of a time keeping the wild turkeys ran out of the yard without scaring the deer off.

 

Scavok, whatever that is you're studying, it sounds dreadful. Be sure to wash your hands before you eat (or handle any of MY coins). And good luck with the test! :)

 

DJ, Anything from Steppenwolf, just play it LOUD! :P

 

Looking forward to those coin pictures! :)

Ooh!! Love the Green, Red & Blue on Silver!! :anicute: Will these (except the Blue, of course) be available in your store? Gotta get some of 'em. I'm hoping I will soon have something to trade for the Blue/silver too! :rolleyes:

There are a couple on on ebay right now that I'm using to raise some funds for another coin's samples due in a couple months :rolleyes:

 

But yes they will be available at regular price later this summer or fall. There are only a few of the trader versions so I'm being kind of picky when it comes to trades (though offers are always nice!). None of these are LE's or anything, but the 2 tones are going to be more expensive to reproduce so will be a small in-hand inventory type sale.

I will definitely be on the lookout for the new versions.

I sent out the announcement to newsletter subscribers a little bit ago, so here's for the rest of you ;)

 

Now that I have finished moving, reestablishing myself and all the journey coins have shipped.... Presales for a remint of these Tree of Life coins are open for those that missed the first round (and anyone else who wants yet another!).

 

Included in the sale is a mystery finish coin for anyone who wants to give it a try - you'll see the finish when it arrives in your mailbox ;)

I ordered two of the Mystery versions and that went back & ordered a red/silver & a green silver. Can the shipping be combined? :(

Yes they can, if you make multiple orders that are part of the same minting just select the walk-in/in-person/free shipping for the second one :mad:

Too late (on my part). The orders have already been paid for & processed. No worries, my mistake.

P.S. I'd still love to trade for a blue on silver... :mad:

Took Care of it!

Just an FYI that the tree of life remint presale is ending Sunday night at midnight MST. It may be open a little later than that, but that is the latest I can guarantee :anibad:

 

Don't say I didn't warn you! I don't know if/when there will be another!

UPDATE

 

There was a hiccup in the mystery finish but it has been resolved. It added about a week to final delivery time but is now under way ;)

 

This will be my favorite finish of the coin, I believe!

The ONLY way you could keep me awake until 2:45AM is the chance to get a Tengwar NAWWAL or 2 !! Definitely worth losing sleep over :D

Yea so much for the theory that stock would last longer in the AM hours!

 

Sorry for the late start - I didn't anticipate 50+ people to be logged in and waiting. My website's resources are prioritized to the shopping side, so when it gets bogged down it affects the admin side primarily (thus the stock edits and on/off switches!).

I waited updating the webpage for 50 minutes. Then missed out on the tengwars so I went to bed. :D

LOL My husband's mad at me for how many coins I've been buying lately, too. So I've been trying to cut back but, there's always more coins coming out that I want! I just hope my husband never finds out exactly how much I've spent. :)

Whew! The presold coins were received and packaging started tonight. My girlfriend and I are planning on working on them until around 1am. I'm hoping school will be cancelled tomorrow (let it snow let it snow let it snow!). If so I will get the packing done and the domestic orders shipped at a minimum (those customs forms take forever).

 

I received some *gentle* prodding from a customer today to keep you guys more informed, which you all wholly deserve and I apologize for not doing so. Finishing these coins obviously took longer than expected and I had hoped to package the "in-hand" sales items along with the previous presale. Time flew faster than expected while waiting for those presold coins and the in-hands have now been in-hand for a week. Again, sorry! It is all being worked on now and you will have these awesome coins very soon.

 

BTW - the mystery finish looks frikkin awesome :blink: The color isn't exactly what I hoped, but in bright light it achieved what I wanted. When you receive them be sure to open them before you even get in to your house so you can see the color!

Thanks for the update on the coins, I was getting worried that they might have gotten lost in the mail.

About 80% of the orders have been shipped, including a lot of the international. All the ones that are left are international and just need the customs forms filled out.

 

I will update all the orders' status on my website on Monday which will also send out individual email confirmations.

 

If you do not get a confirmation by Tuesday morning email me and I'll double check it.

 

Just wait for the "length of my receipts" cointest on these P.O. visits :)

 

BTW - in this batch of coins I also received new and improved samples of the 2009 tengwars. Watch that thread once these have all been completed :).
