The Aramoana arms are not those of the micronation, but those of the New Zealand township. They were used interchangeably with the seal of the micronation, and appeared on most of their postal stationery.
Hello, My name is Bill Turner. I have Blue Waters Mint. Although I have the artistic talent equal to a head of lettuce, I have coins and paper notes made for fantasy countries, islands, etc. I have done a couple for uninhabited real locations but in the form of worker scrip. I had posted on the prior forum before I had a website. In a nutshell, I write a fictional story to go with the coin or note.
I have been asked if I would do coins for micronations. My answer is "it depends".
Being a fan of micronations, I visited the site. I'm also a collector of micronation coins, currency and stamps.
In fact, I've even thought of stamps to accompany the coins (even getting a rubber stamp made for a postmark). So any advice is welcome.
Finally, this isn't a cheap ploy to get a customer but simply a way to let you see what I do. My website is www.bluewatersmint.com
Comments, suggestions and connecting are most welcome.
The charges for coins and paper notes really vary. The price is determined by the metal used and the cost of the design and minting. For the paper, it is mostly determined on the cost of the paper and stamps used to create the design.
I think my lowest priced coin has been $3.25 and my highest price was a silver Larin made in the traditional style that was $24.99.
To elaborate, I issued one coin that was about 45 millimeters and 6 millimeters thick. The design cost me $2,000, $5 to strike each coin because of the difficulty in minting the coin, plus the cost of the metal. I made 300. On the other hand, I had a small silver brakteat made with a minting of 100. They cost me $200 and I sold them for $5 with brochure, coin flip and certificate of authenticity.
The average paper note is about $3. The biggest cost is the packaging and postage versus the note itself although some of the handmade paper I use might cost up to $8 a sheet ($3 is the average). Some of the tiny notes have been as low as 25 cents.
My target now is coins, mostly in silver, priced in the $5 to $10 range and paper notes in the $3 to $6 range.
With that said, on the drawing board are coins ranging from $4 to $7 in common metals (brass, copper, etc.) and silver coins in a range from $5 to $30 and a gold coin I'll likely sell at $59. On the gold and silver, as spot prices rise, I do not raise my prices. I'd love nothing more than to sell a coin as close to spot as possible although I know that is not something that will ever be possible.
Hi there, I am new in this Forum and I am trying to create a Micronation for several years. Althought I emailed a lot of places till today nobody answered to my emails. I mean I didn'd find yet place(s) where to order some coins, banknotes and stamps. Could somebody please in this forum tell me the name and addresses (or emails) of some places in Europe (I am immigrant in the UK) where I can order the coins, banknotes and stamps? Thanks a lot to everybody!
