I've missed a few updates...had to get some "disc golf" in before winter so took a little geocoin break :antenna:

 

Anyhow, excellent!! I'm looking forward to this one!!

 

For your specific feedback request: I'd buy whatever the limit is...

I would buy a few...

 

Would the finish be glossy or matte? ... I would rather see a matte finish on mine. Ive never heard of a glossy UFO but then again I have not seen to many either...lol

I'm thinking about doing some with a glossy/shiny finish, and some in Antique finishes.

Here is v6 of the artwork. It is now a full 15mm thick to allow for the 3D effects.

Besides for a few little details this should be the final artwork.

 

Next the mint is going to create a scale clay mold so I can see how the UFO will look before I approve the design for samples.

 

I've also decided to go back to a 2" design and will be increasing the mint numbers to achieve this. The good news is the price for at least the REs (and hopefully the LEs) should remain the same with this bump in size.

 

Thanks for the great input and ideas so far, keep it coming!

Yes, RE's will be one plating.

 

LE's will feature two plantings. The top and bottom will be one color, the ring will be another color.

Yes, the two tone versions should be stunning and might not last long. I might have to consider looking at my mint numbers for them again.

 

Now that my Power Cache Series has published I think I'm ready to start reservations.

I want a reservation for the Black Nickel and Gold! That was my favorite choice from the beginning when you asked about colors!!

I'm now accepting reservations for the UFO Geocoin.

 

As most of you know besides for a few little details v6 should be the final artwork. The mint should begin work on the clay mold shortly for final approval of the project before creating the molds for the samples.

 

Final mint numbers and finishes have not been set at this time, but here is the current information for the first "Geocoin" in the Area 51 Series

Thank You for the great response to Reservations! In less than 24 hours I've almost sold out of LE's and AE's,

I think I may have confused things a little as to how the 41 available LE's would be split up. Most have been reserved as part of sets and there are now only 4 LE's available as part of Set 2.

 

Here is what is remaining as part of the reservations:

 

RE's $15

 

Set 2 A complete set of all four versions: Two RE's, One LE, and One AE for $60 (limit 2 per person, only 4 sets still available)

ALL Sets & LE's are now SOLD OUT.

 

If you would still like one of the sets or the LE contact me with your request and I'll place you on the waiting list. This does not guarantee your request will be filled, only priority if someone cancels their reservation.

 

Both versions of the RE (Chrome & Antique Silver) are still available for $15 ea.

Shipping cost: To Be Determined

I've received Sample pictures and I'm very happy with the way they turned out. I'm still on the road so I'll upload the rest when I stop for the night. The Samples are currently being re-cast since the ring wasn't spinning very well, so they're adjusting the mold and re-casting. I should have the new ones by next week. Bellow is a picture of one of the RE's. Opinions welcome.

These samples turned out stellar (or, should I say interstellar?)!

 

I am splitting a set with a friend, and based on these samples we're going to have some "discussions" on who gets what.

Here's a profile picture and a preview of the custom packaging. I decided this project deserved more than just a vinyl flip. I'm sure you guys will agree.

A Top Secret Area 51 Access Card is also in development. It will be unlike any Trackable you've ever seen. Something truly new and cutting edge for the Geocoin community.
