Circle of Four Geocoin

Recommended Posts

AlliedOz, 001000

DING! DING! DING!

WE HAVE OUR WINNER!!! Congrats Pingos!

 

AlliedOz created their GeocoinDesign Webstore account on Saturday, Aug 6th prior to the presale going active for Geocoin Designs' 1000th customer!

 

Both AlliedOz and Pingos have scored an XLE 1 of 20 Artist Edition Circle of Four geocoin!

 

Thanks to all for playing, and expect more cointests for other limited editions down the road a piece!

 

LOL it was me! :wub: and here I was guessing as well, sheesh talk about dumb luck. :laughing:

 

Thanks for the most generous prize and congrats Pingos :P

 

Man I have never seen my nick used so often in a thread, and here I was looking at all those guessing me and thinking "fools, as if" :o shows how little I know :blink:

 

And the good news is when I get lucky with a generous coin gifter there is only one thing to do, a cointest to return the good luck, so I'll have a think about it for a day, grab a nice coin from my stash and start a new thread.

 

Thanks again

If i'd seen what was going on in this thread earlier I would have told people to stop guessing me because I had signed up many years ago :)

 

Huge congratulations to Pingo's and Allied Oz though :D And thanks to GeocoinGuy for being so generous with his limited edition coins!

 

*Edited to say - I had a feeling it was customer #1000 :anibad:

Received blueprints from the mint this morning on these!! Oh, how fun is that! LOL - they 'almost' got it right the first time, but alas, they didn't. I will post blueprints throughout the day.

I can't see a difference so am going to take a wild stab in the dark and say you managed to fit New Zealand in... onto the edge of the coin! :laughing:

I FINALLY worked out the difference!!! How on earth did I miss it the first time I went looking! :laughing:

 

Should I reveal or let others discover? Are others looking?

As far as the red one goes... looks like the N (for North) is missing on the obverse side of the coin now. The reds are quite brighter this go around

humanity, humility, tolerance, compassion, energy, matter, time, and space are now darker colors instead of lighter colors (than the background).

the design behind Asia and Australia on the obverse side is now lighter than the background (instead of darker).

 

that is honestly the last one that I see.... but I have only looked at the red versions.

 

Why was the N removed? I mean I know it is implied... just wondering. Can't wait to receive my Greens!

Keewee is actually correct - The only change made on the v3 art is that the Red Sea and the 2 big lakes were put back on the Asian continent. Oh, and Tasmania was put back on (from the v1 art - I didn't post that).

The problem with the mint is that you have to take them by the hand 1 step at a time. When they fix one thing, they 'usually' screw something else up.

 

I'm not so much concerned about the "N" on the red, because that is 'raised metal', and if it shows on another version, it will be on the die, and ultimately the rest of the versions.

 

This is the portion of making coins that is really frustrating sometimes - I just can't understand why they have to change the art during translation. Because it just seems to me they eventually end up right back where we started in the first place. Of course, after my tired eyes pick apart every little detail!!!

The background designs still look reversed in color to me.

Since the coin is multi level, you have to pay attention to the key at the top of the blueprint to fully understand what color represents what. The mint cannot use the same color in the key to represent both the level and color, so they change one or more on multi level coins. This is one of the things that takes so long in reviewing blueprints, every little thing must be checked.

I am heading home today from my 4 day Labor Day jaunt to my sisters place, but wanted to let you all know that I received V04 art this morning (I looked at it on my web mail server since it came to my phone!).

 

It appears that the mint got all the textures correct the FIRST TIME AROUND (YAY), so now they just have to send me the remaining color versions and make sure the art is correct on all color versions together (ie: making sure the compass headings are on all the versions, just in case. That was pointed out earlier in this thread).

 

However, when I get home this afternoon (3.5hr drive ahead of me), I will get art posted so everyone can take a look!

 

Hope everyone's weekend was as wonderful as mine!

Hi everyone!

 

Here is the art that was sent to me this morning. This version is correct in all aspects, however, 3 versions were incorrect & 3 more were missing altogether. So, having said that.. here is V04 artwork:

Oh... I just wanted to say that I have taken Presales down from my website now that the art is close to being complete so I can get a list of "Version/Qty" to the mint for production.

Ya know... it's funny you should mention that, Craig...

 

I wasn't speeding, but I GOT PULLED OVER!! It seems the Arizona Highway Patrol have nothing better to do than to 'run' your out of state plates. So, here I am, out in the middle of the desert... with a cop behind me for 10 miles at a distance of about 3 car lengths. I had my cruise control on, so I was doing 63mph in a 65 zone, so I wasn't worried about that. Then, the overhead lights come on... so I pull over. He comes to my passenger side window and asked for my license, registration and insurance. I comply.

 

Then he asks me if I had anything illegal (like I would admit to that), so I promptly pointed out my shoulder mounted rocket launchers I use as a car frame, my crystal meth headlamps and my hemp seat covers.. LOL Really though, I drive a Buick Century - like the least intimidating car ever ('cept for a Prius).

 

He asks me to step out of my vehicle and come to the front of his car and then proceeds to tell me that my plate came back as a 'motorhome'. I QUICKLY told him to re-run my plate, because he MISSED 2 digits. Apparently, Arizona HP did not recognize my Disabled Veteran license plates - so he just had to compare with the registration.. wallah... it matched!

 

So, he re-runs my plate and all was cool - so he said 'my mistake' and let me continue on. Now I'm paranoid about speeding for the next 2 hours of my drive... so I got home about 530pm. Just thought I would share this funny story.

Wow..... So he missed all of the counterfeit currency hidden under the geocoins in the backseat?

This too struck my funny bone... because I went to a cache in Tempe while visiting my sissy (I took her with me) and it turned out to be a HUGE cache on their front porch. I retrieved 12 TBs and Coins, and of those, I can help about half on their given goals. Relating to this story, that geocache also held a 'ready made' cache, which I also took and placed the 12 TBs/coins in. It was sitting on my front passenger seat, in plain view - but he never questioned me about it.

Okay -

 

So far, the following have scored themselves an Artist Edition (1 of 20) Circle of Four geocoin:

 

Mamoreb

Azure Sky

KeeWee

AlliedOz

Pingos

 

I'm thinking I will be a 'nice guy' and also allow KeeWee a complimentary "AE" for the C4 color schemes he has chosen in his "Name your Edition" cointest win (That's only fair, right? He won a cointest, got to choose the colors & name the edition; so he should receive one, right? Okay - so, we're agreed.)

 

I have decided to run another cointest... I'm just not sure what to do quite yet... maybe a challenge/puzzle cointest?? Muhahahaha :lostsignal::wacko::lostsignal::wacko::lostsignal:

Go for obscure... they are the funniest cointests! (I'm not evil... just sadistic!) :anibad::anitongue:

The answer is 7. :ph34r:

 

No..... Everyone knows the answer must always be 42. ;)

 

True... depending on the question.

 

What is the question again? Oh, well need to built another computer to wok that out!
