+ECplus3 Posted March 8, 2008 Share Posted March 8, 2008 Hi everyone, I'm in the preliminary stages of getting my very first coin made. I decided against making a personal coin and opted to get one made to celebrate and support the soldiers of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, with a focus on Canada's role. I talked with a number of companies and have decided to go with Landsharkz. I've handed over my rough artwork (I used Illustrator, but it certainly ain't professional!) and have corresponded with them quite a bit. I needed to find out what was possible and what wasn't, and they were very patient and very helpful. Apparently you just can't put 42 flags on a single coin! Go figure! As some of you may have read in another thread, I also had to drop the idea of including the official ISAF logo, as NATO is rather keen on protecting their copyrights. Anyway, I'm very excited by the whole process and can't wait to see the artwork created from my ideas, let alone the samples and the finished coins! I would very much like to have them in hand before the end of summer, as that is when my sister-in-law and her unit ships out for their third tour. Cheers! Chuck Quote Link to comment
