We are excited to be bringing you 10 new coin sets for 2015! Like last year, they will be made in the same high quality but most will be THICKER (when appropriate)! We have made many improvements to our processes which will allow for faster production and fewer misprints so hang on to those rare coins if you have them!
New Thicker Coins
Many of our new designs will be 3mm thick which will provide for more heft and a better feel. Sound is also important so if a coin is circle and 30mm in diameter, it will be 2.5mm thick since anything thicker would begin to sound dull.
Our new box measures 145mm x 40mm x 64mm and is made from thick paperboard, laminated with a matte finish, and sturdy EVA foam on the inside. Each box will have a unique barcode, SKU, Description, and pictures of the coins on the bottom for easy fulfillment. Although the box will no longer have a view window, there will be pictures of the type of coins on the bottom so you can keep these for a storage solution. Each set will even have unique artwork for the tops.
This new design not only makes fulfillment and storage a breeze but it also provides better protection for the coins during shipping. No matter how badly the postal system treats your package; your coins will remain safe and sound.
Better Pledge Management
We have created our own pledge management system within our website. Choosing your coin sets will be very easy and everyone will have exact postage calculated when finalizing their rewards.
Calculating shipping through our pledge manager will help reduce transaction costs and allow us to give more away in stretch goals. It also ensures that no one overpays for shipping! We pass along our reduced shipping rates to you so everyone wins.
NOTE: You can get our NEW or OLD sets in our pledge manager.
UNLIMITED SELCTIONS: You can add as much as you want over your base pledge.

Risks and challenges
Delays in manufacturing
Last year we experienced some delays in getting all the coins minted. This was partly due to not having final numbers to give them which made it difficult to estimate excess inventory to cover losses and damages.
This year we will be using our own website as our pledge manager which will give us full control over reports, special pricing, and shipping calculations. As soon as backers select their rewards, we can begin production.
Incorrect Coins in Boxes
We experienced some gold coins being plated as silver and vice verse. We also have had coins from one set placed in the box of another. While these instances are below 1% we want it to be closer to 0%.
Our new boxes will have pictures of the coins in the part that they are loaded into so the packer can double check beforehand. We are also creating all gold coins first and then sending them to the factory so there will be no more incorrectly colored coins.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
