    These are pretty sweet :D I would prefer more video gaming stuff, but I also play lots of tabletop games -- so I'm happy regardless :)

    So are the designs definitely the ones from the OP? I'm loving it and can't wait to get mine!

    Yes, that was the artwork that was submitted. Once there are pictures of the proof coin, they will be posted.

    I called this morning. They only had about 8-9 paypal orders from before the web interface went up. They said they would probably get them refunded today.

    Thanks for the update Macrogeek! I'll bring it up when I do a status check with them tomorrow morning as well.
    I'd just like to remind everyone that orders will be filled in the order they are received. Please do not delay in ordering because the sooner you order, the sooner your coins will be shipped.

    Oh man. Those poor guys over at USCC. They probably don't know what hit them with all these orders. If all goes smoothly and we get our coins before PAX, would a thank you note with a picture of all of us go amiss?

    They would probably love a group shot of us with our coins in their forums. They're very proud of the work they do on the coins, and they love to receive feedback on them.

    It's an coin to mark the event, not a "support my gaming addiction of choice" coin.

    If you call USCC, you can directly get the status on this. I'll be getting an update on the issue when I call them tomorrow morning.

    UPDATE: They've worked through most of the Paypal refunds, only 2 remain. They will do those two tomorrow morning.

    Ok, they're going through all of the invoices and should have the last of the refunds processed fairly soon. If you still haven't gotten a refund, please call them or e-mail them. If they have your name, they don't have to look through all the invoices, they can go to yours specifically and initiate the refund immediately.

    I just got my PayPal refund. I don't know what I'd have done without that $2.53!
    Thanks for following up, karma.

    Hopefully people who order now will get their coins before PAX, but we can't guarantee it. Remember, Feb is a short month, so we're a couple of weeks and change away now.

    I'm going to call them sometime this week and figure out if we have a proof, how many lots are being produced, and if we have an estimated completion time on those lots.

    Update: I got a proof picture from USCC. Right now we're just waiting on final approval from Papaprinny on the proof in case there is anything wrong with it, and then USCC will put the coin into production. Right now they're geared up to make 350 coins, and we can find out more estimates of when they'll ship once they start striking the coins.

    Holy carp this looks awesome. I hope to get it before PAX. If not, I'll still be stoked to have it.

    That's not bad for 5 dollars, but looking at my prime one and this one, it seems the prime one has a lot crisper detail - primarily the text.

    I hope that's just because of the picture.

    It's because the coin is shiny right now, it hasn't been plated yet. The proof is primarily to double check the die to make sure there are no defects. Shiny coins don't photograph as well, but once it's plated, it will have an antique finish, just like the Prime coins. From what I can see, the text on the coins look to have roughly the same definition.

    1.75" in diameter. These are the same dimensions as were used with the PAX Prime Community Coin.

    Looks pretty good. For some reason, Paul Revere looks like Panthro to me....
    Spoiler:

    I am also curious about the size of the coin. In my original design suggestions, I advocated a fairly sizable coin - like 2" or something - but I'd forgotten about that since then since most of the discussions have been around the design itself, not the size or finish. To my untrained eye this looks a little smaller than that, maybe more like 1-1.5".

    Papaprinny has sent back asking for a redraw and a second proof on that.

    It was decided to try to keep the community coins at a static size. Since the last one was 1.75", this one is continuing that tradition. 1.75" is a good compromise between size and cost. The price increases exponentially as you increase the size. The size in the picture is hard to measure without a point of reference, but we paid for 1.75" coins so they should be 1.75".

    Given the crowd, I can't imagine a more appropriate comparison.

    The coins are looking good! I'm glad to hear the text is going to be similar to the Prime coin. I was worried about the definition too but I can't wait for the final product!
