    Dented Helmet coin

    I have been thinking about getting a custom coin(s) made for The Dented Helmet. It would have "The Dented Helmet" around the top/bottom and a image of the Jango, Zam, Boba trio on one side and maybe the Bantha Skull on the other.

    Would there be an interest in this? Design/layout can be discussed and approved on. I hope to get the coin(s) made in either Silver, Titanium, Niobium or Gold.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    A series of the three would be interesting as well.

    Collectors coins? Or more like a challenge type coin?

    Just curious.

    I have a coin from 501stpathfinders.net, I think it's brass. For an extra fee you could have the option of getting something engraved on the coin.

    You might want to ask Brak's if you can have permission to use the TDH name and logo, ESPECIALLY if you intend on selling them on here. The domain and logo are registered to him.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    Guy and Gals, we are open to the idea of coin. Just remember that the administration MUST approve the final design.


    My suggestions:

    * Diameter of the coin be 1.5" (3.81 cm).
    * No more than 4 colors.
    * You can do embossed will colors
    * Don't cover the whole coin with color. It will look more like a button than a coin.


    Othere items to think about:
    * The more colors, the more it will cost, why suggest no more than 4.
    * Each coin will have a one time die cost, which can be over $150.

    it would be a high quality collector's coin. Not something you would find in say an action figure card, but in your vault.

    I will certainly ask DCB and BB for permission. Thanks for the tip.

    You have permission to work on the art work for the coin.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    the number of coins, metal, colors, and size would all have to be decided to get a price quote.

    Correct. The first thing to get the info is to figure out what you want to coin to look like. When I call for a quote, the first item will be what does it look like. So, lets work on the art work then go from there.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    If this is a The Dented Helmet challenge coin, I would be in for a couple.

    I got a 501stpathfinders.net coin for Mrs. Ripcode. It cost me $6.50 shipped and is a GREAT challenge coin.

    As stated color, design and quantity will determine the price.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    my ideas of what could be on each side:

    1. Fett helmet one side, jet pack other side
    or
    2. ROTJ bantha skull one side, ESB skull other side
    or
    3. TDH Angels Logo one side, EE-3 blaster otherside
    or
    mix and match...

    You'd be better off with (1) coin to start. Design it, have it made and sell it.

    If that does well, then continue with the second in the series.

    Or were you considering making (3) different coins all at once??

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    Yeah I would love the idea of a TDH challenge coin. My thoughts on design...

    1. Front Boba Helmet, back Jet Pack with dented helmet name around border.

    2. Boba next to Bantha skull on front, back Jango next to Zam.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    As far as the coin challenge goes, I know people from the Army that would keep a large, heavy washer in their pocket and just tap it on the bar so they wouldn't have to buy the round.

    I was thinking about getting a coin made for the HV&M. I think this would be a cool thing for the 501st to do, you could have a challenge at cons and such.

    I was just listing design options for one coin.

    I highly agree, second, third etc. coins only will be done IF this is a success.

    Any other suggestions for what they would like to see on each side of the coin would be appreciated.

    Re: Dented Helmet coin

    My idea for one side would be TDH Angels Logo with "The Dented Helmet" on the top and www.thedentedhelmet.com at the bottom.
