Don't know why, but I need this coin (How about a Rock Otter? :)). The copper one looks great!

Lovely coins - seems as though I might be broke in a little while.

 

The white otter is adorable, but the backs of the other two are also brilliant.

Thanks for all the great feedback!

 

I'm not sure what a rock otter would look like, but the antique copper one seems to say "rock" to me.

 

There are two other versions that I am having made. Waiting for the final production art and then the order will go in, so expect these in about 4 weeks. I'm not doing reservations, I ordered based on the interest in the different versions that I got here. If I run out there may be a re-mint, although I generally just make new versions instead of doing re-mints because I love playing with all the color combinations. :D

Put me down for at least one! Trying to be good, so for now, would like a copper.

Okay, let me rephrase that: How do I order them next Wednesday?

Thanks everyone! I haven't set a time yet because I need to see what my schedule is going to be like, and I'm trying to get some things lined up (read: shipping materials) so I can be ready for the big shipment that will follow.

 

my shop is located at:

Gotta find the funds, gotta find the funds!

 

Just wish the back of the Red Otter was the back of the Midnight on the water Otter and the white gem in the hands. Then the wife would go NUTS!

Goofy picture of the fish of red otter and the tail of midnight on the water glowing in the dark.

Next time? Tripod.

The Arctic Sea is my favorite. The colors & Finish work great together!

 

The arctic is my favorite as well. :) I used it on the wolf coins, and I'm kind of addicted to it. It may end up being my "signature" color combo until I get sick of it or find something I like better! (I'm so fickle :laughing:)

Brilliant! I hope that the sale time will be posted in advance. Our Internet connection is disabled this entire week, so I need to go somewhere else to place my order. And I definitely hope it will be during "manly hours"! :)

 

Off topic, is there a proper English phrase for those hours of the day that normal people are usually awake?

The hours that normal people are awake worked very well.

"Waking hours" I think? :)

 

I'm debating if I want to try to do 1/2 go on sale Wednesday morning (pacific time) and 1/2 go on sale Wednesday evening. That way there's coverage for both US and international. I need to see if there's a way to automate that with my store or not. :) Would people enjoy that, or would it be better to just put them all up at the same time?

Also, please note that there will be a unique icon, but I'm not sure when it will be loaded. The icons are:

Okay I'll give this a go and see how it goes.

 

I will try to have the sales start at the following times on Wednesday:

 

10am PDT - 1pm EDT and I THINK 7pm in Germany (can someone double check my math? Not sure if daylight savings messes things up)

6pm PDT - 9pm EDT and 3am in Germany

 

The goal was to hit after work hours for as many people as possible. For those of you in Australia, are these times workable?

If I read the worldtimeserver site correctly then the 6pm PDT works for me - 1pm, lunch time :)

 

The Ozzies will be at work, but at least they'll be awake.

 

At the 10am PDT time I will still be fast asleep (5am locally).

Yep! First batch will be on the store in about 20 minutes. I say about because this is the first time I've done a sale this way so I'm not sure if the "one-button populate" will really work or if I'll have to turn on each version by hand.

 

I did put purchase limits on the coins, but I tried to make them reasonable.

Arctic/Emerald: 4

the rest: 2

 

Also, fair warning: putting a coin in your cart does not "hold" it, it isn't removed from the available pool until you have finished purchasing it. Hopefully the purchase limits will help.

 

Thanks all!

Bummer. I just tried to log in but I get a message saying I can't purchase from the site because my system doesn't support the cookies.

I can't believe how I got startled each time I reloaded the page, as items rotated on the front page... :)

It is there now - but I think it popped up a few seconds after the others.

 

I think the red one sold out very quickly! A minute or two?

Didn't see the Tropical Ocean Water Otter listed?

 

Looks like there are still some left.
