That's like a euro or the £2 coin!

I know you'll probably murder me for asking this, but if I wanted one of those even though they aren't for sale anymore. What would it cost to get one made?

I actually found a backstock recently with about 50 or so coins (1s and 10s, no 5s). I'm trying to figure out how to go about this.

Money doesn't come easily for me, so just incase I miss out again, how much would it cost to get one made? [Cause not having a complete set has driven me to literal insanity, I had to lock the other two away and try to put it out of my mind.]

Hey there, sorry for the late reply, been super busy IRL.

I actually have a few ten bit coins left over. If you can send me 20$ that'll cover the cost of the coin + shipping.

Are there still any left? If not I'll ask again how much would it be to have one made. Because I'm willing to save up just to complete a simple three coin collection...

Oh, and also, I liked your original bit coins more. More Equestria feeling than the new ones which are all Mane 6 centered.

Can you post a journal entry if you're going to sell this backstock?

Will this be a limited stock coin or will it be restocked every so often?
Same question for the 5 bit coin :3

Honestly, I loved the original bit, just ordered a lunie, but this. THIS! This is the one I have the most appreciation for. It's absolutely stunning, and I wish it were a real coin. I suppose having deep level of disdain for current USD coin currency makes me appreciate this even more.

Good job tidalkraken, you're doing Celestia's work.

I'm finishing up the color chart today and will be sending it to my manufacturer tomorrow, so it'll be a real coin soon enough!

Thanks man!

And yes, Cycles is the tits. Photoreal in very few clicks and completely free, what more could you possibly ask for? I do wish normal/spec/emission/displacement was easier to pull off though

In fact, for high poly showcase pieces that I send to clients, I tend to favor Cycles over other render engines.

Is it a funny coincidence that since these look like Euros, European Central Bank and Equestrian Central Bank have the same acronym?

pretty much just a coincidence, since I call it Royal Equestrian Mint.

That would be the Minting Body, though; Not the Central Monetary authority (US Mint vs Federal Reserve Bank)....but I'm nitpicky here, these are awesome :3
