(And discussing something in "chat" is no different than a couple of people meeting on the street and bringing up the subject. As long as it gets brought up in the open forums...)
When something comes from chat to the forums it is good. BRDad did a great job of posting the transcript. I personally do not think the lack of sales for coin #2 was due to lack of popularity. I am one of the ones who would have missed ordering completely had it not been for a friend. The winter theme sounds cool and an innovative design would sell. Look at the stained glass ones from Geowoodstock and others that have followed. JMHO (Just my humble opinion.)
When the '05 coin hit the market, the coin frenzy was really heating up. We put out a non-trackable coin (read cheap) and sold over 2000 of them.
In '07 the frenzy had subsided to a steady pace. People are more discriminating on exactly what coins they buy. Some won't buy personal coins anymore, just state, or just trackable, or just animal pictures, or whatever. In '05 you could put out a coin honoring sea-gull droppings and sell 500!
I think the '07 coin shows a more reasonable quantity with a mature market.
I'm up for an '08 coin. I don't plan on getting married again, so that time pressure is off:p
A four season/winter snowflake type coin has already been produced.
I don't recall ever seeing a snowshoe though. We need to raise the bar for 2008! I agree, the snowglobe is probably pushing it a little... :)
We could have the coins shipped via my ex-wife's house and they'd stay frosty for years! :D
Sorry - back on topic. Should we have a coin for 2008 or not?
Snowshoe especially cool if you could get a shaped coin. The number could go on the tail.
A snowshoe shaped winter coin sounds great. Anything winter themed sounds good.
Maybe they should be strapped together like the handcuffs!
