PAX AUS 2021 Challenge Coin -Looking for someone to take up the mantle!

Hi all, I meant to do this last year, (but as it turned out it wasn't necessary for obvious reasons) but I'm stepping back from the AUS Challenge Coin organising and looking for someone willing to take my place for this, and future years coins.

This requires creating a thread here, the order forms, the actual coin design (with community consultation), liaising with the manufacturer in the US and distribution of the coins during the show.

Obviously that's all a lot of responsibility so I'd prefer someone already in the community that will take this seriously. For my part I will help make the transition as smooth as possible and pass on all the knowledge I've collected from doing it these last few years. I can also help with distribution during the show, I just can't find the time for the initial coin creation these days.

For your work you'll get to have a major hand in creating something a lot of people look forward to at each show. Opening the coins at the start of every PAX and seeing them for the first time is awesome. Some of the best parts of PAX AUS for me is interacting with the community, and this is a great way to do it while putting a smile on some faces! :D

Interested? Let me know.

I'll give this a few days so everyone can see it (assuming anyone actually wants the job) before making a decision.




And thanks to anyone who ever ordered a coin. It was great getting to meet you.

    On behalf of everyone that has ever seen or gained one of the coins you have provided us - You have done a fantastic job and will be surely missed in your knowledge and skill in providing these.

    My guess is we can put off any decision until PAX Aus 2022.

    Sadly it's looking that way.

    Was there any movement with 2022?
    2022 might be out as it's a bit late in the year already.

    Yeah sorry guys no one volunteered and I’ve been too busy to organise one myself.

    I know the show has already past but I sent you a DM @fishfishmonkeyhat as I don't know of any other way to contact you.

    All good, thanks for the response. I almost forgot to come back and check as I had a feeling it might not send me email notifications.
    Seeing as PAX is already over there's lots of time until the next one. 😅

    I got back (finally) to @Dave247 a few days ago with info and my blessing to take over the coin duties, assuming he still wants to.

    And now it was my time to apologise to @fishfishmonkeyhat for the delayed response. 😅 As I have been surprisingly busy lately where I don't think I am going to be able to do or commit to anything for this years upcoming 2023 show, but I don't expect to stay busy forever so it's something I plan to reconsider come October again following the show for next year.

    If there is anyone else who has been thinking about/wanting to take up the mantle of doing this then don't let me stand in your way and do right ahead, but seeing as it has been as long as it has and there hasn't been anyone else who volunteered I'm not willing to just let it go just yet as I know it is something that people still want.

    I'll be up for it for 2024, if this was something that people would like to do again.

    Just a heads up to everyone in this thread, I have formally taken on coin production for 2024 and have created a new thread for it below. Check it out as there's a lot of time for preparation and getting to influence what some of the coin designs could be.
