    Looks like the design is ~ 95% done. When do we need to start chipping for a gofundme(or insert your favorite method) type payment to help get this off the ground. South moves ever closer.

    Looks better. My only nitpick now is that on the front side the towers are touching the words on the sides (like the p and a in pax). If it's brought in a smidge, it'll be much cleaner.

    Already addressed and adjusted.

    Once we turn the final design in we'll get a cost for the die.

    The design with adjustments. This would be the final draft unless someone says they have an issue. I plan on approving it today.

    Also, unless anyone has a serious issue with it, I'd to strike this coin in the antique brass that it's presented in here. I think it would be cool for the inaugural year to be different from the rest of the years.

    "Hemis Fair Park" will never look right to me, but that's their fault for picking a dumb name. :pop:

    I'll also purchase 3 extra coins to give to Jerry, Mike, and Robert...unless someone thinks that's a bad idea.

    I'm not sure if you're in my brain, or if I'm in yours, I had the same thought, but about the PAX East coins.
    I don't know if it's something that's been done in the past, but we can make it a thing for the future!

    Okay folks, let's get this die paid for! The link is right here and the coins are also up for pre order here. The price is estimated at $8.00 per coin plus shipping. If we order more than 300 the price will go down. Let's get the word out and get the die funded as soon as we can and get these pre orders in. We need to have all of this done by Dec 20 if we want to have them for PAX South.

    Thanks! We're on our way to funding the die. As of this post we are 20% funded!

    Edited for bad math on my first post.

    In for coin & die. You might want to update the first post and thread title to reflect where we are at so people know they can order coins and such.

    We are now about 55% funded! Way to go guys! We've funded half the cost in just about 24 hours. At this pace we can have the funding finished by tomorrow morning.

    We're still at $25 left to fund the die...come on folks, that's just 5 people giving $5, or 10 people giving $2.50, or 20 people giving $1.25...don't make me keep doing math. Let's get this funded!

    I had originally stated that draklan and I would each purchase a coin , after checking out the site we have decided we will pass on this coin as we refuse to pay $40 in shipping to have them come north of the border when within the USA it is less then $10.

    You could always try sending them to a friend in the US and having them pass them along :)

    You can send them to me if you like and then I can just get them to you at PAX. I'm willing to do that for anyone who would like to order a coin and doesn't live in the US. Just message me directly.

    Okay folks, you can still order coins all the way up until the last day of PAX South, but if they haven't been ordered by now then there is a good chance that you won't have them by the time you leave to attend PAX.

    Due to an issue with the first sample you can still place your order in the first run. If you were waiting now is the time to stop...order now!

    Some have asked why the image of the coin on the pre order page differs from the art we approved here on the forums. Phoenix Challenge Coins mistakenly struck a die of a previous version of the art and then produced samples from it. They used that image to replace the image of our art. I have spoken with them and let them know that wasn't our art and they've struck a new die and are creating new samples.

    Reading the most current post(s) it appears that most will be receiving their coins via after or during PAX South? Any updates if we might be able to get them before PAX South?

    It looks like if you ordered your coins before Dec 29th (based on the post about an issue with the first sample) you will be receiving them before Pax. Based on prior experience with Phoenix Challenge Coins, I would think they would be shipping them very soon.

    I've got an email out to Phoenix Challenge Coins to find out if they've shipped the initial order. I know they were casting then a couple weeks ago.
