12-13-14 - Is there going to be a group coin?

I talked to a couple of people and haven't heard of one. Unfortunately I think now we may be beyond the time that the mint could actually do it. :(

 

Meh. Oh well... sad.gif

 

Do ya suppose you can talk to those people & get the ball rolling on a Pi Day group coin for 3-14-15? The sooner we start the better. laugh.gif

I came on here tonight to see if there would be a 12-13-14 coin, since I missed out on the group coin last year. Too bad there won't be one. I would think 2 months would be enough lead time, but I suppose the problem is once you add on getting all the commitments and colour schemes, final numbers, payments, and them shipping coins out to people, it doesn't take long for a few weeks to get eaten up.

 

If there's a group Pi coin, I'd definitely be interested. Will have to put a watch on this thread so I don't forget. :)

I've been told by a source in the know that a project like this requires 3 months minimum. The mints are now so busy that they pay no attention to "rush" orders. Getting people to respond by deadlines is also a problem unless the group is limited to a few people.

Pi is 3.1416, not 3.1415.

 

Pi is 3.1415926

 

3/14/15 9:26am

 

If you want to go for ten digits of Pi you can even add seconds to the time:

 

3/14/15 9:26:53am

 

:D

Well considering that we'll have to be dealing with CNY in January, I hardly think that getting the ball rolling in December would be starting too early...

It depends whether you're looking at significant digits of Pi, or whether you're rounding it up.

You can't write the number pi as 3.1415. That is incorrect.

Seriously? See Pi here

Looks like 3.1415 to me...

I know this date doesn't work well for everyone but is there a group coin project being planned for this date?

 

Thanks, CF30

 

Hello Crowesfest30,

 

We @ Geoswag have almost completed everything that we are going to be doing for this years group coin project for the 12-13-14 event coin. Janae and I will be heading up the project for this years coin. I will have a link on Geoswag.com and an email by tomorrow. Most of the questions will be on the website.

 

Thanks!

Hans

Hi Everyone,

 

Here is a link to the site. http://eepurl.com/3ESun Janae and I will be working with you on making sure you get the coin you want for your event. If you need the vector file so you can color the coin yourself please let Janae know @ janae@oakcoins.com

 

Thanks

Great, thanks! Glad I won't miss out on this year's coin.

Submitted my event today for approval (GC1E788) and working on my colour scheme to get in before the deadline tomorrow.

 

Just a quick question, if it can be answered by Oakcoins: roughly how many people are taking part in the coin trade? I'm considering it, but I'm just getting 50 coins. If a lot of others are doing it, I don't want to get my order and find I only have a dozen coins or something of my own design to sell at my event. Thanks.

If anyone else is like me and still playing with their colours to submit, I converted the PDF files from Oakcoins into SVGs for the front & back, and then using Inkscape (a free vector program) I created semi-transparent shapes for the various the fill areas. The result is I can select an area, choose a colour, and all the linked areas change as well, making it easy and fast to play with colour schemes. If that's confusing, I did a screen capture to demonstrate.

 

If anyone wants the SVGs to play with, I uploaded them at http://islander1988.com/downloads/121314template.zip

Hopefully I didn't misinterpret which areas are grouped. :)
