+tsunrisebey Posted September 6, 2009 Share Posted September 6, 2009 Keeping my Utah theme going here, this is my other design that will debut at GCF in SLC in October. I haven't revealed the design until now. It's been a few years since I've been there but I did a little tour of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. My mom and I were on a short road trip down to Arizona and then back up to Montana together. We decided to hit Bryce Canyon. I just remember thinking how cool the rock formations were and there was this special feeling, almost haunting in a good way. Every once in awhile you go to a place that for whatever reason you feel it's special for some unknown reason and this is one place that I've always remembered because of the way I felt when I was there. The coin itself does not have any Hoodoo rock formations on it but it's on offshoot of the the place as a whole. I guess the front of the coin is how Bryce Canyon made me feel when I was there, if that makes any sense? It's that feeling you get at night on a full moon and you hear the coyotes calling to each other. It's eerily haunting but you can't tear yourself away from whatever it is that's drawing you in. You sit there and you continue to look and listen in the dark. Then your dogs starts barking and wrecks the moment, lol. Anyhow, you get the idea here, so I drew the coin with this part of Utah on my mind. Other than the Tatanka, this is the smallest coin I've ever minted: 1.5" and it's ROUND! Can you believe that? haha. Not only that but I did a glow version and I've never used glow before:) It's just meant to be a simple and fun design that would also be reasonably priced for GCF They are very cute in person. I minted 75 of both of the editions you see below. Those editions won't be reminted as they were created special for the event. They are trackable with a unique icon, 3mm thick. When I get home if there are any left, I'll add them to the store and I will eventually do a remint in some fun color schemes and new metals. So introducing the HooDoo geocoin, a fun and cute design special for GCF 1) HooDoo UTE (Nickel) - Red/Black/White coloring 2) HooDoo Halloween (BN/Glow) - in the picture the sand looks pink but it's really orange. You'll just have to trust me on that part. - Black/Orange/Green/White coloring for Halloweenish effect. *** The pictures taken in the dark are not great but it gives you the idea Looking forward to seeing you at GCF and I'm posting this now so I don't have to hurry as the event closes in and to allow people to plan what it is they want when they get there. (I haven't determined a price yet for these but I'll post it soon). tsun Quote Link to comment
