Back to July, one of my friend from Numista suggested an idea, and I would like to share with you as it seems to be a great idea: What about a Numista token?
This would be a token to celebrate this website. The design has not be chosen yet and I think we could organize a contest to choose the best design.
I already contacted a factory which could make the token. Prices should be 2 to 3 EUR (3 to 4 USD, 1.5 to 2.5 GBP) for a common alloy or a silver plated token; for silver tokens, the price is between 8 and 9 EUR (11 and 12 USD, 6 and 8 GBP), excluding shipping cost.
Of course, the idea is not to make money but to celebrate Numista, so the token will be sold at cost price.
Before going any further, I would like to know your opinion about this. Are you as excited as me by this idea? Would you like to have such a token in your collection or as a souvenir?
If so, which metal do you prefer? What price could you afford? Which design would you like to represent Numista?
