Medallions

I am starting this thread to gain insight on how many Gary Burke Memorial medallions we will need to have struck. While nothing is definite at this time we are moving forward with this quest.
Again I will ask Nevol to keep track of orders for this quest and want everyone to know these medallions will be available to anyone who may want them. This will include other coin forums, family or friends. I will also state firmly THIS IS NOT A MONEY MAKING PROJECT. I, along with the other moderators, have determined that we should send a pre-determined amount of medallions to the Burke family when they are complete. There are quite a few Burke family members still with us in our castle so hopefully they will continue to check in with us from time to time.
At this time, not knowing how many medallions we will actually be ordering, I can only guess the price will remain at the $20 level. As soon as I make the final payment on the 2009 Medallion Quest I will have a balance on hand and we should know exactly where we stand. I will continue to keep in contact with Daniel Carr so that we might gain some insight into the time frame needed to complete this quest. Thank you all for your continued support.

The only other coin forum that I know Gary definitely belonged to is the Mom & Dad site and Rggoodie has already posted a topic there relating to Gary’s passing, and I sort of doubt that a note regarding a KOTCT Memorial Medallion would be exactly welcome there.  (Bobby is sending flowers on behalf of the Mom & Dad Forum)

Dare we risk asking Richard to ask Bobby if he would allow it?   I wouldn’t want to get Richard into hot water.

Hopefully some other Knights will know if Gary belonged to any other forums.  I do know Gary had joined Facebook a little while ago and although I used to be a member, the sheer number of Emails it generated was a pest, so I quit it and have no real desire to get back into it.

Maybe one/some of our Knights are on Facebook and one of them is prepared to post an announcement there to let people know the news of Gary’s passing and of the KOTCT Memorial Medallion we are organizing, and to let other 'facebookers' know that if they would like to purchase a Medallion, how to go about doing so.  (Direct them to KOTCT?  I'm not too sure about this aspect of it.)

I am almost overwhelmed by the kindness of this group of people. Every post says so much about Gary Burke's personality. He truly did ship friendship around the world!

I will keep everyone informed when I hear from Daniel Carr as I have asked him for an approximate date on which these memorial medallions may be ready to go.

Make sure you've got me down for a tribute medal honoring the CoinCrusader.

btw - I just sent an announcement about the situation to Coin Talk, where Gary was a member since 2004:

p.s: Doug, one of the admins at Coin Talk, says he's sorry about Gary's passing and suggested I post there once the medals are ready to their open forum.

edix, Do you think we should order some spares for members of 'Coin Talk'?  Would you be able to ask them for an estimate of how many may be needed?  We wouldn't want anyone to miss out as it will be a one off minting, but by the same token, we don't want to have a lot of them left over. 

Nohope has already ordered 4 extras, but I'm not sure which forum they might be for.

I've also just put up a post on the Aussie forum (ACBO) but haven't mentioned the medallions yet, but if there are many responses, I probably will do so.  There may be 1 or 2 members there who would be interested in obtaining one.

It would probably be best if someone explained this is basically a subscription order? Any member here can place the order or, if they like they can send the order and payment directly to me. It would be ideal if they could just order from Daniel but then we would be putting a burden on him. I really don't know how much interest there might be away from KOTCT but I am not opposed to offering this memorial tribute to the world. Gary Burke has been a coin crusader since I found him on my first computer. We have been friends ever since and I know, without a doubt, there are others throughout the world who feel the same way.

Before I leave internet land..
Up my order to 8
payment sent.

why 8?
not because I know 8 people who knew Coincrusader and wanted a medallion. I know 3 who are no longer active in any forums who might be interested.  This project however is going to be very rapid compared to most minting and I am sure there will be people who will miss out through lack of knowledge. I will try to have a small overage on hand to cover this eventuality. If it turns out they are not needed at some date in the future i'll turn them over to KOTCT to be given as awards to who ever they see fit.

Nevol you can mark NoHope PAID at this time. This medallion will be struck in April so it is very important that we get our orders in and make payment in a timely manner. I know this quest was very sudden but in my mind no one would be more worthy than our friend and his family from Colorado. Those grandchildren will cherish their medallions for a lifetime and they will learn as they grow older it takes a pretty darn special knight to warrant the striking of a medalion! Gary was that special!

I may be going out on a limb here but let's just go with $3.00 for shipping per member order. I know there will be a few who purchase more than one medallion but I think it will all balance out in the end. I will also be sending any and all Aussie member orders to one address (I hope) so that should balance out as well. Any comments?

Nevol you can go ahead and mark Templar paid for his medallion even though the check has not arrived here in Indiana. Templar says it's is in the mail and thats good enough for me as I want to keep our figures moving upward on this quest. It is going to be a quick one! I might add it is important that each of you let me know for certain what you are paying for as I am still awaiting some payments on the 2009 medallions and I don't want to screw things up! Thanks!

Hey Nevol I have Tobyle's payment now so give her some good ole Aussie "PAID" stamp of approval.

Pocketcoins each medallion will be $20 and each member, regardless of where he or she lives, will pay $3.00 for first class shipping. I will have to purchase bubble mailers for the 2009 medallion quest so I will just buy some extra for this quest at the same time!

   AdamL and Nevol PLEASE make sure I get Jon Burke's mailing address so there will be no delay when the medallions are ready. I would appreciate that very much.

  Looking back over the past few weeks I again see a handful of people daring to do the impossible. Only this time it is different. Instead of us doing the impossible for our group we are daring to do the impossible for our fallen friend. This quest is unique as it comes from the heart and knowing the world needs more Gary Burke's. In this castle memories are carved and protected. Just as Catman's last silver medallion travels with Excaliber The Pet Set Gary's medallion will remind us of what we all can be and should be and what a small group of men and women with a goal can achieve.

Nevol I have received payment from Humpybong and Pocketcoins so you can mark them paid.

I want to remind everyone I am keeping track of incoming funds on the second page of this thread. These funds are dedicated to this memorial medallion quest ONLY and will NOT be shown in the KOTCT TREASURY. While we will be using treasury funds to pay for the sculpting and engraving fees it should be a bit easier for me and my mind to keep monies separate, at least on paper, as I am still accepting payments for the 2009 medallion quest at this time.

That is fine Edix. I just figured these folks more than likely have some contact with you so it would be a more comfortable position for both them and me. I appreciate your efforts concerning all of our quests. Been great having such good friends around the world!

Jon has now ordered a total of 3 Medallions and I'll be sending him details of how to pay soon. I have to go work at the shop today, so I'm a bit short of time.

He's buying one each for his father, (Gary's only sibling), himself and his 4 year old son.

Also does anyone have a GOOD photo of Gary Burke we could borrow for a while. The ones I have are distant or harshly shadowed. Need this quickly as well. Thanks and I await any help I can get on this.

I have been in touch with Gary Burke's daughter Michelle today and want to pass along a little information at this time. Daniel Carr has requested a nice clear photo of Gary which Michelle will be forwarding to the Moonlight Mint. I think the Moonlight Mint will produce a medallion we can all be proud to have and hold in memory of our friend.
Michelle also expressed her gratitude to each and every member of this forum which her father loved so dearly. She also advised the family will be requesting other medallions, for family and friends, in the very near future.
 I would also like to mention the Knights of the Coin Table had a letter published in the Delta, Colorado newspaper last Wednesday paying tribute to Gary. I had no idea whether or not it would be published but I did want the folks in Delta to know Gary Burke was known and loved around the world.
As soon as I receive any information from the Moonlight Mint I will make sure it is posted here for all to see. Thank you all again for being such a great bunch of collectors I/We are proud to call friends. It truly is almost like a family.

If any Knights or Knightesses wish to order a Gary Burke Memorial Medallion PLEASE do so in the very near future. Now that the 2009 Medallion Quest has been completed by Daniel Carr and the Moonlight Mint our attention, as well as his, will turn to this memorial quest. We will need to know exactly how many medallions are needed in the next couple of weeks. Thanks!

I wanted to post this in one of the History threads, but I couldn't find a "reply" button in any of them, so I've resorted to posting it here.  Maybe TKO could insert it into one of the Locked History topics.

First, the link to the article Terry wrote about Gary:

The Article:

Burke left an impression on coin collectors worldwide

Written by Terry D. Adams    
Wednesday, 31 March 2010 00:00


Dear Editor:

On Thursday, May 18, Delta lost a well-known citizen with the passing of Gary Burke. It is our understanding Gary was a well-known sports writer and avid fan, spending the bulk of his life following the sports world.

Tears will surely flow as memories are shared over the loss of your neighbor and friend.

At this time tears are also being shed all over the world as Gary Burke had another side that most folks were not aware of. He had a tremendous love of numismatics, or coin collecting as most of us now call the hobby. A few years ago this amazing technology we call the Internet connected folks from all walks of life, from around the world, on various forums to discuss our hobbies and our passions.

A very small group of collectors had a dream and Gary Burke helped foster that dream into an international coin forum which became known as The Knights of the Coin Table. Based on truth, honesty and integrity the coin collectors involved shared knowledge as the membership grew. With old-fashioned chivalry as our guide, members began trading equal value collectables, and the idea has since spread around the world, with Gary forging the way in an effort to promote the love of numismatics with anyone who wished to learn.

In a few short years the Knights of the Coin Table forum was up and running with Gary Burke serving in the capacity of moderator on a world class forum. With Gary’s help we created the first membership-owned forum in the Internet world. He quietly served as the forum scribe, secretary and historian, while at the same time fulfilling his role as a father, grandfather, husband and employee for his local newspaper.

In 2007 the Knights of the Coin Table managed a first for an Internet forum group when they commissioned Colorado engraver and sculptor Daniel Carr to create their first silver, copper, brass and pewter medallions. We received e-mails from all over the world telling us it could not be done by such a small group. We were told repeatedly not to waste our time and efforts as major coin clubs throughout the world could not succeed in such an endeavor as thousands of dollars would have to be raised to fulfill such a dream. Undeterred and with Gary’s guidance and help the impossible became possible. Final shipment of our first medallions would be launched, under the direction of Gary and his wife Pat, from their home in Delta. The feat was again accomplished in 2008 and 2009 as we now await for last year’s medallions.

In the past few hours coin collectors from Australia, China, Turkey, Great Britain, Canada, Egypt, Belgium, Germany, Slovak Republic, Estonia, Romania, Italy, India, United States and the Netherlands have learned of the loss of our friend and mentor. We at this time are quickly moving forward with a new quest, which will again be a first for an Internet coin forum, as we prepare a memorial tribute to our friend from Colorado who gave so much to the world and asked nothing in return.

Last fall I was fortunte enough to meet Gary and Pat Burke as they ventured through the state of Indiana while on vacation. After spending countless hours online with this unique individual from Colorado I could now put a face with the name. I am one of the lucky ones in this group who got to shake the hand of such an outstanding personality.

Over the course of a lifetime we each will meet thousands of people. Some will be in passing while others will remain for a while, in our lives and in our hearts. And then there are those rare few who will never be forgotten as they truly do leave footprints on your heart. Gary Burke had done so in over 15 countries in the world and we are honored to have known and shared with this man and his family from Delta, Colorado.

Our Lady in Australia should confirm that order within hours! We will wait for her reply and go from there.

I would like to add the fact Daniel is working on an image of Gary for the memorial medallion at this time. !/We have been in touch with Michelle to obtain an appropriate photo for the Moonlight Mint to work from. I also know the Burke family is going to be interested in a rather large order of medallions and I/We have already agreed to work with them on their request.
 

Sometime soon I will post a payment due date which we will need to meet in order to fulfill our financial requirements to this project. I will continue to keep all of you posted as this quest moves forward. Thank you in advance for your support.
