+Degai Posted September 11, 2009 Share Posted September 11, 2009 I made a personal coin and like everyone else who has had a coin made, I had to pay for the die. (Actually, for some reason [maybe because I bought it], I thought the die would come back to me with my coins; I did pay for the die to be made.) Why shouldn't I be able to have something I paid for? It is my property. I love mechanical things and I thought it would make a nice display to have my coin and the die together. I had the coin made at Hogwild and I asked Sharon to find out what it would cost to ship the die to me. She quoted me $130! She said that was pretty much cost. I must admit, I was in shock when I saw that price. That was more than it cost to send the coins! Is the coin company ripping me off? Is this reasonable? (I certainly don't think so!) So here's what I would like to know: Have any of you gotten your die(s) after you had a coin made? Do you remember what you paid for shipping? How big are the coin dies? If you didn't get the die(s) was it because the shipping was too much? Are getting personal coin dies different from getting coin dies that are manufactured for sale to the general public? Am I the only person that ever wanted to have a coin die? I am just curious about this issue. Don't quote me on this, but I think Sharon told me something about the coin manufacturers don't want you to take the die and get another coin made elsewhere. I wouldn't do that because I'm not going to get more of these coins made but on the other hand, it is none of their business what I do with MY die. Can anyone out there enlighten me on this subject? Am I missing something here? Quote Link to comment
