:bulletblue:Edit 9/9/12: Hey so I'm not sure why people keep getting directed to this journal entry, because it's REALLY outdated. I've already chosen the designs for the coin, and the kickstarter is underway. Current information on the coin and its kickstarter can be found here: akili-amethyst.deviantart.com/… or in my LATEST journal (which is on my profile page).
Thank you


Ok so it turns out I didn't need as much time off as I thought I did. Hey, at least I prepared by over-estimating time rather than underestimating! I tend to do that. ^^;

:bulletyellow:Would anyone be interested in buying a COLLECTABLE COIN with my Celestia design on one side and my Luna design on the other? I was thinking of maybe starting a kickstarter donation pool, since the smallest custom coin order is 100 coins.
:bulletblue:It looks like the FAQ's have been about size and price and such. I'm not sure about the METAL it will be made of. I'm waiting for the company's reply. The SIZE will be 2 inches in diameter. And the COST will be $15 USD at MAXIMUM. It might be less depending on a few details I will be working out.

PLEASE COMMENT!

:bulletblue:ALSO Please stop choosing which design you would buy! There isn't really a choice yet; I don't know which one I'll be able to order, if any at all! :doh:

Also, awesome stuff!

:bulletgreen:MIRRORS and KEYCHAINS with the stained glass design of your choice available through the link!
:bulletgreen:There are also a few more slots for SUN CATCHERS and T-SHIRTS! Please follow the link if you were interested.

:bulletred:COMMISSIONS are still closed for the moment. I'm still waiting for payment on some of the sun-catcher/t-shirts orders.

Thank you so much for watching me!!! :dance:

I would love for the design to be either the third or the fourth design. Either one I would be overjoyed to have.

Hope you don't mind me asking here, I didn't find any info anywhere.

You know if it would be possible (on my end) to solder a small metal ring to the coin? I was interested in taking the coin somewhere that worked with metals and possibly convert it into a neck piece.
Something along these lines (excuse the poor drawing :p): [link]

Lovely work btw.

I do believe it's possible. The coin will be solid brass with 14kt gold plating on one side and nickel plating on the other. It will be 2 inches in diameter, and approximately 3.5mm thick. I think that's all the info you would need to tell whoever will solder it for you.
Let me know if you get it done? ^^;

Thanks for the reply, will see if I can get in contact with a solder next week

Will most likely be backing me two coins either way, one to safeguard, another to hopefully display around with pride (or in last resort, to horse around with)

(obligatory bad pun delivered ^^)

Where was I? Oh right, you'll be the first to know ;)

Have you ever heard of military challenge coins? That's pretty much what these would be. They can't be used as real currency. It's more just a collectable knick-knack, so it's worth as much you want it. That being said, it costs quite a bit to have them made, which is why the smallest order I can get is 100 coins.

The coin price is about $15. Or are you talking about MLP currency? :O_o: I think it might be worth 100 gold pieces.

Personally, I would buy the one where the Celestia is gold with the silver background, and silver Luna with gold background.

Probably not for $15, though. That's a bit steep for me.

That price would be for 100 coins, so that's pretty good imo...

It is 100 coins, right?

No, she has to order at least 100 coins, the price is for 1.

That's still not too bad, I have seen collectors coins go for much more, and this is going to a good cause...

Plus it has Luna and Celestia on them :)

Oh, I'm not saying it isn't worth $15, I just personally can't afford that right now.

Thanks for answering. Second (which is as detailed as the first when you check the full screen) and third both look like good designs. Although I'm not sure how having two different colored sides will look.

Akili-Amethyst Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah the first one and the second one are supposed to be the same, I just didn't use the right filter that I wanted the first time. That's why in the artist's comments I stated that it was a progression. ^^;

This sounds neat. My only concern is whether or not it's legal.

Hasbro got a hold of a plushie maker here on dA (who sold a Lauren Faust alicorn plush to Lauren Faust herself) and asked her to cease and desist with the selling of her plushies.

Only that Hasbro said if she wants to sell them, she'd have to get a license. I heard about it on Equestria Daily.

Just need to make sure the metal isn't too soft, to avoid bending of flattening the engraving.

I like the 1st and the 2nd. The 4th looks great too, but I worry the paint could end up scratched.

Well the site I'm looking at looks like they make coins for big companies. I don't think you'd have to worry too much about it getting flattened or scratched. (Unless you leave it on train tracks or put it in with a bunch of other scraps of metal in a drying machine! :lol:)
