I am beginning discussions on this topic with the hopes of being able to sell enough coins to enable an order of these coins.


I have heard nothing but good things with regards to these mock up designs and am now opening up to everyone else an oportunity to pre order (commit) to these.


There will only be 500 coins minted at this time the coins will be sold for approximately $9.25 per and you the purchaser will be responcible for shipping.


Because of the costs associated with these I am unable to bear the burden of minting these and then trying to market them as well,too risky and too much $ for a poor guy like me.


Once we reach the magic number for ordering, and payment have been met we will go ahead with the order and get it done.


If on the slight chance there are any profits made on this endevor they will be donated back to a charity, or whereever the members decide it to be directed to.


I can be emailed directly to slippery_1@mts.net make sure you write pre order on the subject line.


I would love to see this become a reality and with your help we could have a coin in circulation, designed here in Manitoba.


Your comments will be appreciated.

The coin looks great Slippery – I’ll contact you by e-mail to place my pre-order. Is $9.25 the “all in price” if I were to pick up the coins directly from you, or would I be responsible for shipping from the supplier? If so, any estimate what shipping would come to? Any other fees; taxes for example?


 


When were you hoping to place the order?

Not sure why I never saw this post until now, but I would definitely be interested in ordering a couple of those coins.

The Norman GeoCoin design is great - put me down for 20.


 


Thanks for the clarification that the price is "all in" including PayPal charge, GST and shipping. I understand that if shipping gets really expensive the price may change slightly.

Ok it seems we only have a few people (35 coins) wanting to order so after Monday I will be opening this up to the world and see about interest in this...


Let me know if you want in on this as it will be a one time order, and who know if or when another like this will ever be done.
