Ok, I tried to post earlier but my son was seeking my attention and decided to press the power button on my computer. :) Needless to say, he got my attention!

 

Our event went really well. Not sure the exact number but probably in the ballpark of 100 people or so. The space was jam-packed! In fact, there were people there almost an hour early -- we had gone early to set up and they beat us there!

 

Received some really nice comments about the event and the cakes that my friend made. Gave away coins and other caching goodies as door prizes and of course, sold lots of event coins.

 

Below are some pics I thought you might like!

That's awesome news that those of us that requested coins can get one. I can't wait to see your coin in person. Like a bunch of others it was really beautiful! Thanks for making it look so nice with your color choices!!!! :)

If anyone is interested, I just noticed that oakcoins shop has a "random 999 coin" available for purchase. I decided to spring for 3, and see what I ended up with. :)

So when we told people at our events that only X amount were minted of our colors were we in error or did oak coins mint other colors as well to sell?

ELTADA, I love those cakes! Those are awesome sweets! : )

 

I'm really glad everyone's enjoyed the coins; the coin was fun to design and I just love cramming detail into stuff, so I'm very very happy that people are happy with it. Squeee!

According to the description:

 

This is the 9/9/9 Event Coin which commemorates the multi-events being held around the world (each event has it's own version of the coin). We have a limited mixture of event coins left over from different events around the world. The coin you get may not have the same colors as the coin pictured above. It will be the same design.

 

I'm guessing they just had a few extras, not that they did a remint.

I would like to know the answer to this too. I don't remember seeing in any emails that XXX number of coins would be minted, and you may purchase XX number of coins for your event (and Oakcoins would sell the remainder on their site). So, I am a bit coinfused as to where these coins came from.

It was my understanding that a minimum order was 50. I was a bit worried that 50 would be too many (silly me) and Oakcoins had offered to buy back up to 25 from me. I decided to go ahead with the full order of 50 but perhaps other sites did not. Could this be the explanation?

I asked the very same question. It turns out that at least one event (Utah) either didn't happen or sold back all their coins, and some other venues have sold back some coins also. So that's what they're selling. Your minting numbers are accurate; Oakcoins did not mint extra of people's coins to sell. Whew! : )

No worries; I was a bit anxious about posting inaccurate minting numbers too. : )

Well, if anyone gets any of the following coins from Oakcoins I'm interested in trading or buying. I'm rather disappointed that Oakcoins did not notify event coordinators of the opportunity to purchase random coins before putting them out on their website. :) I would have liked to have been able to buy some as well.

C30, email fatkidsOTWunite about a GA coin. I arranged a trade with Janet today. She has a few left, but not many.

 

I received my SC version of the coin today and it is GORGEOUS!! Thanks so much AtlantaGal! That came FAST!

 

Awesome. Glad it got there so fast. It's weird, but I have faster shipping times to most places, especially Canada, than I used to from Atlanta. Who'd a thought.

Well I got my coins from oak today. Not sure what I have though since neither one matches up with the mint artwork mark posted of them all. I'm guessing one of them is Utah, but don't know which.

Received two 999 coins in the mail from oakcoins today. Little disappointed - I got two of the same version and don't know which... :laughing:

 

I think they are the ones that were in the picture on the website but of course that's gone now. It's a gold coin - lighter green on the front with a darker green accent color. On the back, a blue outer ring with the same two green colors on the inside design. Does that sound familiar to anyone?

Hi everyone

 

We had a lot of fun at our 999 event in Georgia! We stood near the Georgia-Alabama line on the Chattahoochee Riverwalk in Columbus. The "Ice Cream Lady" met us there in her cute pink truck complete with bubble machine! We had 40-50 folks in attendance and gave away one of our coins as well as a CVC cachers coin and GGA coin, both donated from attendees (thanks!). Sorry I dont know how to post pics here but they can be seen on the cache page GC1WAPX

 

We've really enjoyed being involved in this project and we hope to do it again next year on 10-10-10!

 

We also still have some coins available for trade if anyone has any left. I've been slow getting this message out because my mother has been seriously ill, in fact the 999 was my first 'outing' since her illness.

 

Take care

Janet (and Avery)

I got your message, sorry for not responding! I'm so glad it got to you safe and sound! Right after I sent it, I found out I've been sending them out at the wrong rate! So from now on, no more envelope rate mailers from me.

 

The Utah one is quite pretty. :D If anyone is wanting a Spokane/WA one, I have an extra and would be happy to trade for a 999 or some other coin. :D

If there's anyone interested in a NY 999 version (one of the few antique versions), I have a handful left from the event. You can contact me through my profile if you are interested.

I got my two 9-9-9 Japan coins today.

 

I will trade one of them for any other version, as long as I can see the numbers behind the clouds easily. Hard to see the numbers at times behind the deep blue of Japan.

 

If I had to make a short list it would be:

Portugal

Michigan

Washington

Texas

 

...but I'm open to anything, las long as the recessed number symbols are easily visable.

 

PM me. :D

I did take it, thanks. I think it's the hosta that makes it look so good. I don't have a fancy camera, just a point-and-shoot on macro outside in the garden.
