Mardi Gras Masquerade Multi Event

Recommended Posts

version C, anyone know where that one is going, which event?

Those were samples made before any of the event organizers picked our colors...so, I doubt that any of those were minted for any of the events (except maybe Mark's, since he was involved in minting them).

Could be the geoswag or club version as well.

LOVE these coins! So glad I joined the GC&P club last month!!! Wish we were closer to the Bay area. This is definitely an event we would have attended. Too bad no one from So Cal is throwing one!

 

Really well done avroair!

Correct Vanelle and Anne.and.Eli did a few samples before we had knuckled down all the design elements --- C was not used although I have the sample at home.

Due to the carnival hightime, march 3rd-8th, the event will probably be hold march 11th.

Before the room capacity is very rare.

The listing will be set up soon.

wow! i want to go to germany! stunning colours!

 

Hi RedshoesGirl,

 

You are more than welcomed!

Come in august to the GCF2011 EU and I will keep you one of each edition.

 

btw, the event will be online after tomorrow, because tomorrow I have an event going on and I don`t want to bring out the next one before this one is over. Have a look into it. It`ll be fun, because it will be right after the local carnival procession is over.

 

here are 2 pictures from our last years carnival procession

Is it ink or is it black nickel, making the coin two tone?

Not sure as it could be black nickel on gold. I just thought we could only do two tone on the features around the eyes and nose and not the other way around.

I didn't color the face. It's black nickel with shiny gold two toned. :)

Wowza! They're all absolutely gorgeous! The one marked for geoswag - I'm assuming this version is the one that will be available to the general public? I got notification and a pic of the club coin, and the color scheme is slightly different. Thanks for posting these pics for all to see!

Not to confuse anyone, by "notification", I mean that I get regular e-mails from them when new stuff is available or there's a sale going on. A pic of the club version of the coin was part of the mailing. I could send it to you, if you'd like. ;) . I don't usually get notified when they send a coin to me; it usually just shows up on my doorstep. Like a nice surprise, most of the time.

As long as you join the Geoswag club before January 27th, you will get their version. I believe you have to sign up for a minimum of a 3-month membership tho.

These are outstanding! Is Portugal's coin the same as Avroair's Artist Edition?

 

It's my. Ae I jokingly referred to it as a Portuguese Ronaldo coin (famous soccer player known for theatrics) the name stuck. They are available for trade.

I was quoting their last email blast referring to the masquerade coin. It said 3-month minimum membership (see below)

 

Venetian Mask Geocoin & Pin Set

 

Only available to club members. We ask new members to sign up for a minimum of 3 months by clicking on the link below or on the photo. Payment must be received by the 27th of January, 2011 to receive this coin.
