Just wondering what might be in the works for this years BCGA coin. Is the committee thinking about another contest or do they have others ideas.

Could it be an option to have a contest to design the coin but then to get the committee to select the top 3 at which point we could use the online voting system to get BCGA members to select their favorite? This way there could be more member input, a chance to trial the online voting system and for the members to just have fun with it.

Anyone else have any ideas or thoughts regarding this years coin?

I like the idea of having the BCGA members voting for the best coin. It is a coin for them afterall. We are having our monthly meeting tomorow and I will see that it is discussed if it is not on our agenda already. Keep ya posted.

The size of the picture is so that you can get the details right. A normal size coin would be fine Wink

Any word on what is happening with this yet. I don't mean to sound pushy but having gone through the process myself and seeing the coin get pushed further and further into the year I know that it takes a lot of time to get the coin into production etc.

For instance, if you already have a design chosen, it takes up to a week minimum to bounce the artwork back and forth with the mint before it's mint ready. (sometimes you can get lucky!). Then it takes up to 2 weeks just to get samples made and receive them on this side of the pond. IF the samples turn out perfect and beautiful them it take around 3-4 weeks prodcution time and shipping before the order is in hand. So in a good scenario just shy of two months once the artwork is chosen.

I hope that we can get the coin out by summer!

It is highly doubtful we will be having the coin out in the next few months. Seeings how we just got the 2010 coin out we need time to try and sell them off before making them old news with a new coin at the beginning of summer. Late summer early fall would seem to be what we looking at for the 2011 coin.
