    For those who have not seen it.

    The PAX West coin:

    Aside from just having colour on one side, the Pac people were also enlarged, moved, and given eyes. This was done by the artist and not by the community, but there were no objections to it.

    So, a non-gaming centric sided coin has been done before!

    Thanks for the pics.

    I would argue that Robert Khoo is very gaming-centric. Also I would say this was a special occasion :)

    DON'T YOU RUIN THIS FOR ME!

    But PA art is also gaming centric.. >_>

    I'm still cleaning up the source pic, but what does everyone think about using Flinders Street Station for the location side?

    Cleaned up.


    Now we just need to work out if we need to "gamify" the dropbear, and how. I could stick a power glove on him I guess?

    Actually I hear VR is going to have a big showing this year. I might see what the dropbear looks like with some goggles on, and if they do nothing.

    VR was heavily seen at Pax West this year! Large gaming companies are getting on the bandwagon. I saw a few in the indie section too! I'm sure there will be a presence at Pax Aus.

    I think VR + Powerglove is your best bet

    2 options:

    This one might only work if we do colour.


    Should I put "VR" on the goggles, or is that clear? I was considering trying to do it like the VB beer logo but it was too messy of a design/litigious.

    Updated with more details. Def looks better:

    If we can only have colour on one side if should be this one.

    A quick count of the votes for the Latin phrase has NULLUS ANXIETAS and TERRA PRETIOSA LUDOS tied at 4 each. But @Happyburger said
    I love 'Land of Expensive Games' and 'No Worries Mate' as mottoes but the Latin is way off.

    Terra Pretiosa Ludos should be Terra Pretiosorum Ludorum. The original has Pretosia agreeing with Terra, meaning the land is expensive, not the games (true but off-topic). Also Ludos is in the accusative case when it needs to be genetive.

    So TERRA PRETIOSA LUDOS should actually be TERRA PRETIOSORUM LUDORUM, for what it's worth (google seems to confirm this).

    So I'll need to make a voting form I think. I'll also add in the following since the votes have been so low so far:

    NUMQUAM MENTULA ES (don't be a dick, used on all US coins)
    NOLI ESSE DRONGO (don't be a drongo, my original suggestion for a localised version of the above phrase)
    NULLUS ANXIETAS (no worries, Disc World reference and used on last years AUS coin)
    TERRA PRETIOSORUM LUDORUM (land of expensive games)

    Feel free to discuss, but the actual voting will be via the form I'm about to make.

    Well the polls are pretty much conclusive so I'll probably release the results and submit the design tonight. Get voting now if you were planning to!

    Voted. Thanks for organising this!
    With the Flinders Street side (great idea BTW), I was wondering if you were planning to do it 'full colour' or do it the same way they did for the South coin (enamel to show off the 'depth'.
    I'd vote for that, and suggest that at the most the colour on the flinders st side should be a green roof enamelled on?

  • Options
    fishfishmonkeyhatfishfishmonkeyhat Freelance Pin Man Newcastle, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    That's really up to @akidderz at this point honestly.

    If we go a full colour coin on both sides I'd imagine it would just be a photo sealed in with clear enamel, assuming that's how they do it.

    WOW! Full color coin....that would be.....AWESOME! and a first full color coin. Either side would look great in color, however, I'm partial to dropbear :)

    So when are we ordering these coins that I didn't know about last year because PAX was a late decision?

    (Yes, yes I did sign up to the forums I've been casually browsing for the past few months just for this... I'm slack and a bit antisocial)

  • Options

    I'll probably have the order form up early next week, if not this weekend.

    So this is the final artwork:

    BACK:

    Please everyone double check that for typo's/correct dates and let me know if you find any.


    We're going with reeded edges and antique gold like this year's south coin so they should look something like this.

    :D

    :D

    Are the Front and Back images of the coin reversed? I thought Flinders was the front image and dropbear was the back image

    Dude, just turn it around. :P


    But seriously I just had a small heart attack thinking I might have gotten the text paired with the wrong image, but no that's correct.

    I had just never really considered what the "front" of the coin was and listed the first image I uploaded as it. ;)

    I'd be quite happy with just the Dropbear in colour

    Yo you like colour that isn't a photo transfer check this shit out peeps:

    sAHV51al.jpg

    Groovy.


    Order update: Ok so now all coins in the first batch (100 standard/100 colour) will be distributed at PAX AUS by myself (getting them shipped straight there from the factory). So once I get the prices the form will be a tad more straightforward than last years (less postage options).

    SOON.
