    Money sent. Thanks for putting this together, looks like it was a PITA.

    papaprinny,

    Did you have a way for us to get the coins to the PA folks if we were getting for them? Another note to that, did we make sure everybody on that list was getting one? Last I saw we were short one.

    If you look at the post again, you'll see that everyone at the PA offices are now covered.

    If anyone wants shipping information for their intended recipient, email me. Though don't be so quick just yet. There's a possibility that a number of us might receive our coins before Prime.

    According to Darrell at NWTM, about 67 coins are shipping out today.

    If you get your coin before PAX, be sure to post a photo of it in this thread.

    Dang, now if I lived on the west coast, I would be able to get mine there... ironic that may be, but at least I get a sweet looking souvenir as my journey quest reward :P.

    Any chance of FedEx tracking numbers, so we can compulsively check on them until they arrive?

    I was very pleased with it. I never handled a challenge coin before but it feels perfect. The detail is very impressive. I would happily have paid $20 for it.

    Okay, that's all sorts of awesome, and if yours has already arrived then there's definitely a good chance that those of us on the first order will be getting ours before the convention.

    Once again thanks to papaprinny for handling this, and congrats to those of you getting your coins! Definitely looking forward to mine.

    Are they in an envelope or a box? Just when I get my buttons now I have something else to look out for.

    They come in a nice little box. How do I know?

    Looking good. We will have to outdo this design for PAX East 2011, though. Everyone be on the lookout for coin themes while at PAX. Our next design will be far more interesting than this if I have anything to say about it.

    Keep in mind he's talking about a regular cardboard shipping box, not a display box or anything (just got mine!) They are bigger than I expected, I expected quarter-sized, but these are about the size of classic old silver dollars. Definitely very cool, thanks Papaprinny for heading up this last minute idea!

    It is possible to get presentation boxes for these though. 1.75" is a pretty standard size, and there are places that specialize in challenge coins that can sell you presentation boxes (often leatherette or velveteen covered) for coins like this. I bought some snazzy looking red wooded boxes myself. Not for my own coins, but for the ones that I am presenting to people. They ended up running me about 3 dollars each. I'll put up some pics when I get them.

    These coins are amazing, and they have some heft to them. Definitely worth the money.

    Yay! Mine arrived as well and it is better than I could have expected! It's gorgeous and heavy and quality feeling. A million thanks to papaprinny for making this happen - you're a superstar!

    [the mailer it comes in is so securely taped that I could hardly get into it! :)]

    Here's mine:

    By 'happily have paid $20 for it' I mean in no way should these cost a cent more than they did in following years ;-)

    And I must thank papaprinny for everything he did to get these for us.

    Depends on what you want. You can get a capsule from anywhere dirt cheap. If you want a presentation box, you need a box for a 1 3/4" coin. I'm getting presentation boxes from US Challenge Coins, because they have a pretty slick looking red wooded box for 1 3/4" coins.

    Are there going to be any of these available on site? I love challenge coins. Can't promise I'll get one, but if I get the itching, I will buy one right up.
