any possibility some of the enamels can be translucent?

I don't know. That is under discussion, and / or the possibility of glitter because Mike liked glitter. Maybe some on the tiki side. Like how about glitter on the lei or the torches?

 

The deal with translucent is if we do black nickel translucent doesn't really work does it? I don't know what metal is in the works...

 

We are coordinating this whole thing via e-mail in 5 busy lives, so sometimes there are pauses....

As long as you aren't doing 3D (which you aren't) and imitation hard enamels (not soft enamels) translucents work fine with black nickel. You can double check with the mint, but many (all?) of them do black nickel plating after IHE if it's not 3D. I'd guess it has something to do with the stoning process.

 

Here is one side of the black nickel sampler coin; as you can see, the colors are not muddied at all.

Looking good...is this final? Would the hole look better on the opposite side, then it would not interfere with any elements if the design. It would be to the left of the Tiki, and the right of the dates. If needed, the bank of the river could be slightly adjusted to make the entire punchout fall within the sandy area, instead of half in the river.

Pauses are OK, I think taking the time to get every detail perfect is the right thing to do.

I haven't been around here very much lately (busy with life..), but am VERY interested in getting a couple of these when they are ready. Please, if anyone does start a list of interrest, please be sure to add me to it (my contact info is on the mailing list).

 

Great work on these, I can't wait for them to come out...

I like the changes with the transparent but Mike also liked glitter for some of his works...anyway that glitter could be incorporated into the translucent design, maybe to the torch flames to make them "come to life"?

 

Since Mike liked glitter how about glitter for the river....That could be looked on as symbolic maybe

Got it. Found this on page two or three after spending a bunch of time elsewhere...I don't want to miss the sale if I'm gone from here for several days.

Here is the list of people that have expressed interest in the coin.

So I will make sure you all know when and where it goes on sale.

And your name on this list does not mean a commitment to buy or anything like that. Circumstances and priorities change.

I guess I am just giving proof that I am a list maker...

They look great! Mike did love the glitter; that would be a great addition as some have already said. I don't think I was very specific at first but I would really love to get 2 sets of each black nickel and gold.
