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!
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.
