Have the coins been designed/created? When will they be available?

In progress. Would you like to join the design committee?

Admittedly, we are behind schedule, It's doubtful the coin will be available by the Spring Event.

Hate to Nag (maybe I'm not). Just curious where the comittee is at with this? Is this is going to be ready for the fall event/meeting I think they need to look at getting going on this. I'm interested to see what kind of designs they come up with this time for the coin.

We are currently in the minting process, so they should be ready for the Fall Event. They should be ready soon. We'll let everyone know when they are ready and when we will start selling them.

Here is the blue print, but the coins aren't in yet, so no "real" pictures.

Who's taking the orders?

I'm claiming 10 of them.

How much and where do I send the money?

Slow down...we'll let you all know when we are accepting orders. Wink That's your taste for right now. I'd expect to see pre-orders starting soon, but we want to wait until they arrive.

There will be 380 coins available. Pricing and plating options will be made available once they arrive.

So, that's your sneak peak at what the coin will look like. Stay tuned for updates.
