+Jackalgirl Posted December 30, 2010 Share Posted December 30, 2010 Ahoy, me hearties! Cap'n Jackal here, an' I be lookin' fer any coin-lovin' sea-farin' scalliwags who be pinin' fer shiny, precious, wonderful LUCRE -- yes, th' 2011 Mini-Doubloon Treasure Quest be gettin' ready t' set sail, an' I be needin' a fearless, clever, dastardly crew! Coin - Th' Design Th' common 3D front, based very loosely on th' Edwardian (Medieval) English Silver Penny. Showin' an expectation o' what th' silver coins may look like. Th' back, customizable. X marks the coin! Coin - Th' Specs Size: 1" (25.4mm) diameter / about 1/16 inch (2mm) thick Plating: Yer choice: gold, silver, copper, black nickel. Antiquing and foggy/satin finishes a wee bit extra. Colors: Up t' three IHE enamels. Translucent colors at no extra charge. Glitter/glow a wee bit extra. Pearlescent a wee bit more extra. Engraving: Up t' 15 characters for a moniker or phrase Custom icon: Aye! Tracking codes: On th' edge, like th' life o' a pirate Is it Approved? Oh, aye, th' Dread Pirate Anne herself passed on th' Frog's Blessin'. Arrrrr! Price - Th' Basics Each pirate signs up fer a bounty o' at least 20 doubloons (but ye kin quest after more if yer heart so desires). Pay-in per each bounty o' 20: US $115* Courier fee: US $6.50 (unless ye be livin' in th' Land o' th' Risin' Sun [Japan], in which case it's US $6) fer a bounty o' 20 More coins: US $5.75 each piece* (courier fees may probably increase, but I'll let ye know when I know yer mind) Th' charges for this project are on a per-color basis an' a quote fer 500 pieces. So this price is based on th' assumption that all 25 o' th' crew choose completely unique colors (for a total of 500 doubloons). As some o' th' areas are good fer translucent enamel (and there are only 24 translucent colors), chances are th' crew will end up choosin' some o' th' same colors. An' more crew members may also bring down th' price. So, in short, this price will probably be less (as t'was last time we set sail). How much less? It depends on how many we have fer th' crew an' what colors we choose: I won't know 'til th' final tally. Price - Extras Glow/Glitter: US $.13/coin (+US $2.60 per bounty o' 20) Pearl: US $.30 per coin for th’ first pearl color (+US $6 per bounty o’ 20) an’ $.05 per color (+US $1 per bounty o’ 20) for colors 2 an’ 3. Antiquing: US $.10 per coin (+US $2.00 per bounty o’ 20) Foggy/Satin Finishing: US $.05 per coin (+US $1.00 per bounty o’ 20) How do I sign up, Cap'n? Just send a message via e-pigeon or e-bottle to: email@example.com an' let th' ol' Cap'n know th' following: Yer Geocachin' Identity (Geonick) Yer email address Yer PayPal address (if different) Yer mailin' address I'll get ye added t' th' Quarterdeck Muster. This year, I'll also be runnin' a separate TRADE list fer those wishin' t' trade. If ye want on that list, let me know (but ye don't have t' worry; I kin always add ye later). I'll be takin' muster until JANUARY 20th. If ye not be sure whether ye be wantin', ye kin sign up anyway. It's no trouble t' take ye off th' muster if ye change yer mind. But we be needin' at least 25 committed pirates t' muster up this crew (or t' have our eyes on a cache of 500 total doubloons). Any fewer an' we'll have t' call off th' Quest on account o' not havin' enough hands. But NO MONEY WILL BE COLLECTED until we be ready t' finalize th' order, so ye kin still join an' do yer plottin' an' schemin' wit' no worries 'bout partin' wit' hard-earned cash. Rehashin' it all It's all at th' website fer th' Project, which be here: www.grafikato.com/doubloons2011. I be lookin' forward to sailin' wit' a fine and wretched as bunch o' scum as ever sailed twixt th' Seven Cointinents! Quote Link to comment
