First Coin: Celestia's Side by Akili-Amethyst First Coin: Celestia's Side by Akili-Amethyst
:squee:
The coins have started to come in! I'm so excited! Are you?
Coins are 2 inches in diameter, and approximately 3.5mm thick.
It's cast from brass and on this side is plated with a finite amount of 14kt gold.

There are no coins for me to sell right now. I'm expecting a batch soon, but I need to inventory them, and then I will put them up for sale. Keep an eye on my journal for news of it.

I just recieved my coin in and I have to admit it's pretty amazing... I may have to pick up a few of these so I can call them my "Bits" if I do end up cosplaying my OC for BronyCon if you get around to making more.

There is a company in Virginia that will make coins if you send them your idea. But you have to order a batch of at least 100 coins.

Some brony friends of mine convinced me this kickstarter was going to be a scam because they heard of reports of a major breakout of scams on the site, so I didn't sign up for it. After seeing images of the actual coins here on Deviant Art today I looked around and apparently these reports of a breakout of scams on kickstarter were spawned from an article in THE ONION magazine... WTF.

Is it too late to sign up?

I'll be selling the extras of the order once they get to me and I have time to inventory them. Keep an eye on my journal for updates! ;)

Selling, or auctioning? Because I should probably forget it if they go on ebay. I can't afford things that costs in the hundreds :(.

Oh yes! I'm so excited I could burst. It's a shame that it takes longer to get to Mexico.
