Crying or Very sad


Sorry but I can swing the capital for 500 coins. And I'm not going to presale them. So if you want to buy 400, I'll foot the bill for the icon?

It's 250 for an icon now, FYI...

I've added everyone above and that has PM'd me to my notification list.

The next phase of the coin is complete. The manufacture has produced a sample which I should have in hand in about a week. Below is the photo that they sent me.

I would like two coins, but if demand is too high, I will only take one coin so more can have a chance to have one

Well the next step is completed. I have the sample and I am very satisfied with the results. I have informed the vendor to go ahead with the final production. Therefore, I expect to receive the final product in 2 to 3 weeks. I'll bring the sample to breakfast buddies next weekend, so if you want to see it just ask.

As described before it is 1.5" in diameter, 3.5mm thick and weighs 1.1 oz. It is shiny gold with enamel paint. All of the letters are raised base coin so they are shiny gold as is the map of the world.


Of the 100 coins, I have set aside 60 for local sale, 20 for eBay auction and 20 to for personal use or trade.

Again, they will be gc.com trackable but will not have their own unique icon. They will not be serialized.

As far as pricing goes.

$8.00 if purchased without mailing ($0.50 less then planned). Coordinated pick up or at an event.

$8.75 if mailed.

I'm not going to offer on gc.com.

I currently have 20 set aside for sale on eBay. Therefore, if your planning to sell there I hope you at least give me the courtesy of letting me sell mine first.

To date the following have asked for the quantity below:

33 of 60 requested for purchase
celticwulf x 2
CamoCacher x 2
LucidOndine x 2
fireman121 x 1
sir_zman x 1
