It took me 3 years to get all the coins, some were hard to come by, but it was fun  :)

A friend of the family, who is a retired carpenter made it for me!

Very nice, thats really awesome. I actually may do soemthing like that with my set seeinghow nice it looks. I think I am going to hold off though for the 63rd coin before I do any framing. I know i will get it eventually. Perhaps in 4 years when I finish getting my MA and Ph.D. Here's hoping to finding a job and having some spending money then ::) and not being broke the way I am now

As for time, it took me a while as well, probably 2 years. Some coins are just so hard to come by.

Well I had the frame made for 62, so I have no plans to the 63rd coin, out of interest what where the hardest coin you found to get hold of?

Well i think the hardest ones were the Skiff coin and the Hoth Trooper. They are pretty tough. The Hoth Trooper coin was the last one i got to finish my collection. Boba Fett is not really a tough find, but is over priced all the time so i waited til i found one at a reasonable price. How about you, what was difficult for you to find.

I also have this smaller Luke X-Wing coin that pops up every one and a while. I am sure someone has a pic of it. I have read alot about it and most people have no idea what it was going to be used for. Its the same Luke X-wing as the POTF coin, but the back has a different description and a little Yoda. In my eyes it is another POTF coin, so i figured why not it didnt cost much.

The two that I was waiting on for nearly 6 months was Luke Hoth and Greedo, I got sailskiff and Hoth trooper early on for resonable prices, the only other coins I have are the ewok and droids series.
 I thought about collecting Prototypes but I had enough after 3 years and wanted to go back to vintage moc.

Well I have all the Droids and Ewoks coins as well because I have a complete set of the figures MOMC. I have both versions of C-3PO as well.  I keep hearing about a gold Droids POTF version of the R2 coin but have yet to see one.

I also have the 3 coins that came with the bendy figures a few years back.

the only droids coin i need loose is the A Wing pilot coin (loose)I thought about the droids prototype coins but I have decided against  it, because it could get expensive, so I decided to avoid variations all together. the 3 bend em i havent bothered with.....yet!

I hear you about the prototype coins, it can be really expensive. It wuld kill me to have the coins with out the figures anyway.

As for the variations, I would like to pick up a few of those but have never come across any.

Oh yeah, that's why I don't collect the coins. 

I liked his instructions though, pretty direct fellow.  I'd be happy dealing with him/her.

Oh yeah, would be very cool.  But a year + of chasing vintage on ebay has tired me right out.  It's a nice thought and if I see some cheap, I'll pick them up.  Amanaman is lonely.
