As Luke Skywalker said in the other interest thread, the fundraiser for the challenge coins is beginning.
I created this thread for "book keeping" purposes and as an easy place for you guys to find information on the coins.
First off, let me ask that when you send payment you include the following information in the PayPal notes:
Forum Name Real Name Shipping Address Phone Number
Please note how many coins you'd like. I have some members donating and asking for more than one coin while others are donating more than the requested $15 and asking for only one coin. We need to know if you intended to donate more or if you wanted multiple coins.
A lot of the time all of that information is required in order to ship internationally, which I know will be required for a lot of you.
Payments can be made via PayPal to:
Each coin is $15 USD shipped, but if you want to donate more than that, we definitely appreciate it. Every dollar donated will stay in the account tied to this forum to cover domain fees, upgraded services fees for Proboards, and to hopefully keep the ads off of the page permanently all year round.
Each coin will have a serial number that will be applied, in order, based on when the donation is made.
Luke will be able to update this post with a list of people and coins if he wishes, but this will be locked as strictly an info thread so that we can keep you guys updated, and you can easily reference it as well.
Thanks so much for your support and may the Force be with you.

Thank you Kyle.
Guys, please please please include your info in your PayPal payment. Name, address, screen name etc. I need to know who's who to keep you all in order and for simplicity of record keeping. With 50-100 shipments the more help you guys give me the better.

This is the proposed front side. It will be 3D with some nice depth to it. The plan for the reverse is to have the following verbiage in Aurebesh curve around the top and bottom. When doing a coin you have to go more simplistic to see the features. They have our actual logo and may incorporate a little more but I believe it will be the version below.
The initial proofs are in and my contact said we should have these very close to our target of May 4.

A couple of you have asked for a specific serial number. I will do my best to accommodate those requests. Numbers 1,2,9 & 14 have been spoken for. I'd suggest picking more than one number as they will fill up as we move along. The number range is 001-100. We won't be doing another run of these. The plan is to run 100 coins each year.
If you have a request please send me a pm with just the number in the pm time. That way I don't even need to open the pm as I'll see them all right in the title. I will NOT respond. That will save me some time. All requests will go in order based on the time stamp. All other orders will be selected based on the order of the PayPal donation time stamp.

The coins just arrived. I'm very pleased with how they turned out. They've got a nice shiny/tarnished gold look to them. The new TRA logo looks fantastic and has a Lot of depth to it. The logo is very much a 3D stamp that has nice clarity and multi level depth.
These will be shipped wed-thurs this week.
I'll be updating the full list with everyone's choice of serial number tomorrow. Please check the sponsor recognition thread over the next few days to verify your number is correct. I will be referencing serial numbers according to time stamp of your PayPal or pm to me.
Thank you again to all that have contributed to defraying our costs. I'll get the totals up once all shipments have been sent out. A quick guess, I'd say we've got maybe 20 coins left.
GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.

scarecrow: Then they've gotten more than a few laughs on my behalf. I'm probably their Sam Kinison.
