+AlliedOz Posted April 11, 2013 Share Posted April 11, 2013 Hi All I would like to introduce you to a project I have been working on, This coin is for an event taking place in my state of Western Australia in late July. I am very excited as to how it looks, and can not wait for the samples to be in hand. After the huge success of the Geocaching “Tools of the Trade” T-shirt,(being run again soon, contact me if interested) no doubt due to the awesome artwork, there was no way I could go past Christian Mackey for this coin design. It started out with a very basic idea from our end and he has taken it worked his magic and made it spring to life. It was felt that as it was the first non-personal coin from WA (that we are aware of) we really needed to be sure there was a healthy dose of Western Australia represented, and boy have we got that happening. The fluffy tailed critter is our state mammal the Numbat. Banded Anteater (Myrmecobius fasciatus) The Black Swan (Cygnus atratus) as part of our fauna group is also present A Red and Green Kangaroo Paw is the states floral emblem Our state colours of gold and black are present with the silhouettes and finish How could we go past an Australian coin and not have a kangaroo in there somewhere Plus a couple of other bits and pieces scatted through the design that I shall leave for now. They will be sold at our coming event for a price yet to be determined (based on amount reserved) We are considering an event version for those attending and a slightly different version for the rest. (most likely just the finish) It is trackable with a unique icon and so on. There is a good chance that there will be some left over… but not many (I hope) as we intend to order close to the reserved amount. Should anyone be interested drop me a line at my GC.com account and I will e-mail you pricing details once we are about to order, you can then opt in or out. Hope you like it as much as we do Quote Link to comment
