The fundraiser has started and I need your help!

I want to offer two of my stained glass designs as a collectable coin. But the smallest possible run is 150. That's where you come in!

The way it will work is at the end of the month I will order them as a large batch from a coin making company. After doing some fancy mathematics I figured that the cost of the dies, the materials, the shipping and handling to practical everywhere, etc. can all be covered by charging only $15 dollars each! And the smallest order I can do is a run of 150. That means 150 Bronies out there need to back this project!
:iconbrohoofplz:

:bulletyellow:EDIT: I really won't know the international shipping costs until I receive addresses of the recipients. So for now, I'm going to say that I can cover shipping costs internationally up to $10USD. If shipping to you ends up costing more than $10USD, I'm going to have to ask you to pay the difference. (:crying:SRRRRYYYY!!!!)
But, if this project does exceedingly well, beyond the goal, that might change for the better! SO TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT IT! :dance:
Stateside shipping is definitely covered when you pledge.

One side will feature my Celestia design and be gold. The other side will feature my Luna (season 2) design and be nickel.

Check it out! :iconpointrightplz: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… :iconpointleftplz:

Just a reminder, you will not be charged for your order until Sept 25th at 5:30pm EDT. And that's ONLY if this project is successful.Then the coins can be made! :bulletyellow:Estimated delivery date is in November. (Perfect timing for the winter holidays!):bulletyellow:

Even if you cannot purchase one for whatever reason, please reblog the URL, post about this in your own journals, tweet about it (Since I don't have a twitter myself) and so on!
:bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletorange:I don't have many options for advertising this, and I want every Brony to have the opportunity to purchase one! So I am relying on you guys for word of...text? Word of ...blog? :lol:

Celestia-Luna Coin Render by Akili-Amethyst
Above is a crudely rendered picture of the coin, front and back. Celestia is on one side, and Luna is on the other. Yes, one side will be gold, and the other will be silver in color. Click on the above link (the one with arrows) for more info.

Thank you so much for reading!

Pledged!!!!!!

Also, just to clarify, for shipping, you'll collect the addresses from the various backers and then mail them out after September 25?

Yes. And the mail out date is in November. The coins will be made after the coin making company gets the money.

Are you having to place the mass order and then ship to the individual folks who pledge, yourself?

Actually no. The place that makes them is being really great and will be sending them straight to you guys. I just have to cover whatever that total will be.

Ah, okay. Sweet! Heck, that'd be quite a bit of extra work. O_o`

aaaand another order is just in from me, 2 coins on the safe side ^^
International order thou.. so I've left you message on Kickstarter to explain my situation and additional "fiver" has been added for now.

They are really gorgeous, althou it would also be great to have individual coin for each of them, one gold "bit" for Celestia of The Sun and one silver "bit" for Luna of The Moon. On the main side, probably something like Equestrian Finance depositary and image of Canterlot.

In case of Hasbro issues - you would have to remove the names of any character or location from the coin and the campaign name/description. The "silhouette" are fine as they are artwork creation and have slight variations which change their resemblance from original show. (they would possibly ask removal of campaign from DevArt too like the poor person who was making those awesome plushies..)

Have a nice day! =)

Really? That's all? That's not too bad, considering there's no words on the coin. Still...
:fingerscrossed: I'd love for this to go off without a hitch!

Thank you for the compliments! :D

You are very welcome! =)

Well, those artists selling and fully offering and linking their goods from DevArt or other sources straight to "selling" portals such as eBay, Etsy, etc.. got a "letter" of warning with list of actions to take to resolve the situation. Its the DeviantArt who receives the legal complaint letter from Hasbro.

But this happened, to my knowledge, only once++ (know only 1 case in detail) on DevArt in regards to MLP - the sellers were awesome Plushie makers and plushies were being sold for hundreds!! of dollars each. However, they only asked for removal of the links and the journal which contained it - that was all required for the satisfaction of the legal complaint. Hasbro is pretty cool when it comes to that, others are not so forgiving.

Just a note - will the coins have any serial number on them for collector's purposes or any type of "soft" certificate stating the production run amount+its serial number?

Cheers and have a nice day!

That's pretty cool. Hasbro is really nice for being like that.

I'm going to have the coins stamped with '#/#'(but with actual numbers) So you will know which one out of the total you have. :D
