Update #3

Here come the bison...

5 comments

We did it! We met our stretch goal of $45,000 in Seed Money pledges with just a few hours to spare. We'll be including a few bonus Buffalo Nickels in every reward shipment this fall. Thank you for supporting our Seed Money campaign and for sharing your wonderful ideas about how you plan to use these whimsical paper coins.

We're moving forward with Porridge Papers in Nebraska, who will begin making the raw batches of seed paper this week. In addition, Scott and Jacqui at Slide Sideways have designed an awesome logo --- and here it is...

We just love it! It's reminiscent of old time paper money and hints at the fresh flowers and vegetables that Seed Money will one day become. Thank you Scott and Jacqui!

Finally, our Kickstarter campaign ends at 9PM Pacific time tonight - so you have until then to adjust your pledge to a higher reward level if you want to stock up on Seed Money. We'll post more updates including photos of the paper making process, coin illustrations, seed selections, and wrapper designs in the coming weeks.

Thanks again, -Lea & Devin

      What kind of seeds will be in the buffalo nickle?

      PS Of course I should add to my suggestion, It would be nice if the Image of Neil Armstrong is on one side and the image of the Moon landing on the other

      I am so happy for you Lea and Devin:

      PS If I may be so bold, I'd like to suggest an additional coin called the "Armstrong Eagle dollar" in honor of the great American who just past away and on to us a great Legacy
