I personally wouldn't want one side blank. Having just text would be fine, but I think having one side with the 3-d design and coloring and then the other with your name etched would look more like a medal than a coin.
But having raised text would be fine vs. another logo

If we were to go with the spot for engraving, I was imagining still having artwork or something on that side, just with a blank plate in the middle for engraving. Something like the 501st Pathfinders coin:

That's what I was think too. Design around edge with space in the middle for name.

Eh...not liking the blank space idea, but that's just me. I really dont want to have to buy a coin, then pay to have it engraved too.

Well, the way the poll's going, it may be a moot point.

Well, looks like I've now have to do the hard part and start looking for someone to make them.

I don't know how popular of a place it is, but the Dantooine base did theirs through AllAboutCoins: http://www.allaboutchallengecoins.com/

so...I just had me a thought about this. Since I know we're really trying hard to have a tight fit between 501st and RL...how about a Central Base/garrison coin?
One side is the Central Base logo and the otherside the Central Garrison logo?

Neil brought this up over at the Central Garrison forums. They're currently in the middle of a run of Garrison challenge coins, and want to wait for a joint goin until that run is finished. Makes sense, especially since we're working on our own run of Base coins. Smile By the way, any progress, Melissa?

Sorry, I've been working a lot of overtime at work the last few weeks, so I've only check on the different places we can get them from. I hope to stop by an award shop here in town that makes coins to get a quote. It would be nice to cut the cost by not having to pay shipping to me.

Well, I'm getting some quotes in now.
Cost depends on amount ordered and if we want color.
What I need to know now is if we want metal tones or full color.

So what do you all think?

I would like a coin in a gold or silver tone.(OR Ant. Brass,Copper plated)
