This is something that I've been wanting to do for quite a while now, but I just haven't had the time to work on it. After talking with some people last night, I'd like to throw it out there and see if anyone will take it up. Anyone interested in organizing a run of Central Base challenge coins?

Now that I know what they are, I would be interested.

Yeah, I'll take a couple.

Ok, Melissa has offered to handle the run, now all we have to do is decide on a design. I'll suggest the Base logo on one side, and the Screaming Tauntaun Squadron logo on the other, only because we already have both those logos done. If we want something else on the other side, we'll have to design that from scratch. Any ideas?

So no rebel legion bird just the base logo and the Screaming logo, correct? That works for me and it's a little different than the other bases coin runs.

yeah, I had that thought as well...at first I was thinking it might feel like it's only a detachment coin, but really since our base logo has the Rebel bird in it...having the RL logo on the other side would feel...well, silly. So it's probably our best option. The other thought I had was to have a copy of Ed's picture from the signature where he's look up and to the left, it's kind of presidential, hehe.

Right. If anyone has any other ideas, please, speak up. I know the Squadron logo won't appeal to everyone, I just threw it out there because we already have the art done.

Only if it can say" In Ed We Trust" on the edge of the coin. Razz

Well, only if you can fix my Anakin/Clonetrooper clock. I'm counting on you, Ed!

I'll take a look at it on craft night.

Ok, I've added a poll to the top of the thread to determine what design we should use. You've got about two weeks to decide. If option three (new design) wins, we'll have to submit ideas for it and vote on those.

Since I'll have my pilot costume sometime in the next few months, the ST logo is fine with me!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challenge_coin


Aurabesh had posted that URL when he was originally wanting to do a KJO coin and someone asked. I was told what they were a long time ago when I had a roomy that had one from the Army. It was pretty much that same story.

I like to do the Central Base logo on the face side. I've been looking at other ideas for the tail side. One idea I've seen is to leave it blank so you can have it engraved with your name or nickname.
I also think it might be fun to have the back said "REBEL FOR LIFE" in

Oh yeah, of course. It wouldn't be a Base coin without the Base logo on it. Very Happy

That's an interesting idea. I kinda like it.
