11.12.13 Multi Event Geocoin

Recommended Posts

Leave it to Geocachers to be creative when it comes to Sequential Moments in time. 9.9.9 / 10.10.10 / 11.11.11 / 12.12.12 / 11.12.13

 

Not too many more ways in the near future to have a Sequential Event. Throw into the mix that some read their dates, Day Month Year while others Month Day and Year. So here is the thing. We have an event coin Version November and Version December. We have been given permission to host our events in the States early, and have approved the events to happen after the fact. Whether your event is in December or November we've got the perfect coin for you.

 

If you are hosting an event or two to celebrate 11.12.13 and want to make a custom version of this coin for your event, or if you want to participate with our generic version of the coin, please email me Michael@Oakcoins.com. I can get you the information ASAP. We only have until October 3rd to order. That's Less Then a Week.

 

Oakcoins will be hosting the following events:

 

11.12.13 11:12:13 Flash Mob Event

11.12.13 Event Celebration. We are going to party like its 1999.

11.12.13 European Spectacular to Celebrate with our friends "Across the Pond" "Down Under" or "In the Great White North - Ehh?"

Hi Michael,

 

could you let me know Final Geocoin's name for this Multi Events?

I want to create a new bookmark on my animation link

I created my event listing 11-12-13 Multi Event South Bohemia, Czech Republic GC4P4G8 12th December (not Published yet).

I would like to ask all Participants of this project for help to get all versions of coin to my collection (it's not for profit).

 

Thanks for your goodwill

Nice looking design! But what is the difference between the artwork for USA and Europe? I am looking for something related to December 11th vs November 12th, but I cannot spot it...

It's a Simple. ;) Look at four small clock faces. On the Left Month is displayed (Nov US, Dec International), on the Bottom Day of the Month is displayed (12 US, 11 International). On the Top 13 second is displayed, on the Right year 2013 is displayed (it's the same for US and International).

I was getting ready to put in my order but finding another problem with the order page and shipping charges. Anyone else put in their order yet?

I guess I am out this year Michael. Too many things to do for geocoinfest and packing to leave. Just don't have time for this now and not sure who all is doing it if there is a need around here. Thanks, maybe next time.

Hi Beverly,

 

i'm not sure, because shipping to the Europe is calculated maybe 100USD. I tried to make order during weekend and Front Color 3 is for extra price + 0.15USD.

Yes that is one of the errors I found. I thought that Michael had fixed that when I emailed him earlier. The shipping when I tried to order was over twice what we were quoted. Hopefully it will be fixed today.

Hey Beverly, I'm seeing the following prices for shipping which seem awfully high to me. Is this what you mean? :unsure:

United States Postal Service

  • Priority Mail $60.24
  • Priority Mail Express $154.94

United Parcel Service

  • Ground $40.16
  • 3 Day Select $96.29
  • 2nd Day Air $156.73
  • Next Day Air Saver $209.88

Yep that's exactly what I meant. We were quoted $18.76. I also want it fixed before I order. My credit card doesn't like extra big charges. :blink:

I went ahead and ordered the coins tonight. We wanted to get the order in before translucents jumped up 15 cents per. I'm just hoping the SLAGA will be reimbursed the proper amount on the inflated shipping charges... dry.gif Not KNOWING what the proper shipping charges actually are bothers me.

Says $18.76 in the terms of service so I expect them to honor that.

I also went ahead and ordered after I saw that the 15 cent charge had been fixed. I chose Priority because that is what is in the terms of service so I hope to see a credit quickly.

 

I also opted in for the trade.

I also placed my order Sunday night (own time), while the form contained some errors (0.15 for the 3rd color, and no option to leave a zone without enamel), and asked for confirmation. Still waiting, though.

 

I preferred when we only had to pay when the coins were ready to be shipped.

No trade for me, thanks.

As a participant in this project I think it would be fair to let all participants know:

 

1. How many versions of the coins are being made,

 

2. Who those participants are (where, what group, etc.)

 

3. How many of those are in the trade.

 

We (participants) have always known this information before in past projects. There used to be a spreadsheet that laid it all out for participants to see.

 

Do you suppose a list (at least) of the above information can be compiled and shared with participants or posted here? Please?

 

Thanks ^_^

Have these been ordered? I didn't see the artwork that was supposed to be approved yesterday by the time table on the link. Time is of the essence.

 

I haven't seen the postage refund either.

Why do I get the feeling we won't be getting blueprints to approve... dry.gif

 

And the shipping thing has always been sketchy...

I also received the artwork with the note that they are still working on the small details on the 4 small clock faces. It seems to me that those are the main reason for the coin. A change there is actually a major deal to me.

I found that "Trackable At Geocaching.com" is another font then BW Artwork and the Wheels on the background are different too.

I hope that all will be Fine in final, because design of coin is very nice.

I assume that Michael is at geocoinfest so he didn't reply to my email. I just hope that they were ordered before he left. Event is a month from today.
