I would suggest everyone check out Daniel's planned design for the Burke Memorial Medallion in the other thread in this section and get your orders placed. If Daniel can pull this design off it should put him on equal standings with any mint in the world! I am putting my money on him! ;)

I would like to let each of you know the Burke family, in this very trying time, is overwhelmingly in favor of the design which Daniel has presented this week to our membership. They have been touched deeply! I have been in contact with Michelle concerning the design and she has worked with Daniel to get that perfect photograph for the medallion. I advised her on Wednesday the finished design had been posted for our review and she, in turn, rushed to her mother's side to present the news.
Later Wednesday I received a call from our Mountain Lady, Pat Burke, concerning the medallion and our efforts to provide this very worthy memorial for our Knight Sir Gary Burke. I had asked Michelle for the families approval before we struck the design. I simply cannot find the words to describe the love and the thanks offered from Pat and her family in Delta. In this very trying time we have given them something unexpected and they are just overwhelmed with gratitude to all of our members spread around the world who have so generously made this memorial a reality. Pat described Gary's love for this forum and the people he had befriended here. Through the years many of us have become one big family, whether we knew it or not, and will continue to do so as we move forward. When the time is right both Pat and Michelle will be posting their own replies to our endeavors but until then they have asked that I tell EACH OF YOU how much they appreciate our efforts and the love they have for our membershp.
While we all wish to have one small piece to commemorate our friendship with Gary, our CoinCrusader, his family is now awaiting an heirloom to have, hold and cherish for generations to come. Years from now when these medallions are passed on to others there will be stories told and part of the story will be resting on the back of the medallion telling all that in 2010 Knights and Knightesses still roamed the planet. Only through the miracle of technology could they exist and with a click of the mouse they spread around the world sharing their passion for their hobby, the joy of distant friendship and, at times, heartbreak and tears. One of those  medallions shall forever rest, embedded, in the tombstone of Gary Burke in Delta, Colorado.
It is an honor to be a small part of this story, to be a friend of his family and to have known a personality like Gary Burke.

   I have received a free standing Castle Plaque which has been handcrafted by Madspec to hold one of our 63mm Pewter Medallions. This plaque will be presented to the Burke family with one of the memorial medallions after they are struck. Thank you Madspec for your time, effort and craftsmanship in this project.
   I will get a photo of Madspec's craftsmanship as soon as I can get with TKO and will post the plaque here for all to see. I am sure Madspec is willing to turn out a few more of these castles if any of our members are interested in displaying their pewter medallions in such a way. Personally I like what he has done and see the potential of adding a few to display all my pewters.
   Hopefully I can get a quote from Madspec for each plaque and offer them real soon through the KOTCT or directly from Madspec. Thanks again to Marion for this gift to the Burke family.

I have learned, from Daniel Carr, there is a chance the CoinCrusader Memorial Medallion could be struck as early as next week if his order for pewter blanks arrive by then. Once again we are nearing the end of another successful quest.

I will be needing to wrap up the order count very quickly with our membership and also with the Burke family. If you want one of these PLEASE get it on order.

Here are a couple of photos of the castle.

Maple---------12.50
Poplar---------15.00 
Mahogany----20.00
I can also do them in Walnut but the price would be about $35.00 as it is more expensive and a little harder to work with.

The shipping in the US would be $4.95 Priority Flat Rate
The cheapest I could find for Australia would be $13.50

Anyone wanting one just email me with what type wood and your email address and I will send you my paypal link or my address if you don't want to use paypal. 
I can usually make and ship in about 7 days.

I am debating whether or not the KOTCT should purchase a few of these medallions for future sale? I know without a doubt someone will want one in the future but don't know whether or not to tie up our funds? Any thoughts on this? For what it is worth I was thinking 4 to 6 medallions?

I will also have 2 spares in the event that any Aussies (new members or not) desire to own one of them at a later date.  ;)

If, after a while, there are no Aussies that want one, they would become available to anyone, anywhere. ( I haven't determined how long a 'while' is though.)   ::)

The clock is slowly ticking as we await word from Daniel Carr on these memorial medallions. I am anxious to know if we will have the first matrix-dot technology medallion here in the states!!!



Nuggethill I will be putting up a new Red Rascal, with a 68 and a half inch wing span and nitro engine, tomorrow if weather permits. I have lost my first two nitro powered planes this spring due to a faulty on/off switch (know that now) so this new plane was built and a NEW on/off switch added. Still have to name her but I am starting to envision a KOTCT Knight Flyer? Will have to keep you posted on this first flight!

Hi Nevol! Seems like I am always wanting something! Please add 32 medallions for the Burke Family to our list. I will advise when payment is received.
I also want everyone to know I offered the Burke Family these medallions at our cost per medallion, whatever that might be, as I had NO intention of figuring their purchase into the production costs of these medallions. I hope everyone agrees with my thought process on this matter. If not please email me to voice any concerns. Thanks.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Daniel Carr has done the impossible as the Gary Burke Memorial Medallions are now in my hands. Simply unbelievable WORLD CLASS work by the Moonlight Mint and Daniel Carr. Will start shipping in the next few days. I/We will always have a memory of our friend and mentor Sir Gary Burke and his family will have an heirloom to pass from generation to generation. These medallions are a beautiful tribute to many things which we all can be very proud of.

Hello Knights and Knightesses!

My family received our medallions yesterday -- we are speechless, thrilled, and honored; they are absolutely incredible. My mom (Mountain Lady) loves the medallion, it brought tears of joy and thankfulness. Papa would have simply been astonished at such a tribute, but it would have touched him deeply and I can think of no better way to honor him.  CoinCrusader was blessed to have you in his life, as friends and collectors. I speak for my entire family when I say Thank You -- thank you for the time you spent, the conversations you had, the trades you made, for being the Knights/Knightesses. Thank you so much for this incredible Medallion, especially to Terry, Daniel Carr, and all who dwell within these castle walls. We will cherish the medallion and you forever. Bless you all and thanks again.

Michelle

CoinCrusader was blessed to have you in his life
As we were blessed to have him touch our lives.

My sentiments precisely!  We were all touched by Gary in some way and to have a lasting Memorial of him by way of the medallion shows the high esteem he was held in.

The Burke Turtle Service will continue to deliver "Friendship Around the World".

My medallion arrived today.  ;D I reckon I just never gave much thought to how big it was going to be. What a surprise when that came out of the package.  ;D It's huge.  ;D

 


Offline TwoShadows

   Sir Gary Burke absolutely loved the huge 63mm pewters so we went with his love of the medallions. It also gave us much more room to design something appropriate for our friend and his family. With that in mind we moved quickly to say "Thank You" to someone who has done so much for so many and asked nothing in return. The Burke family will forever be a part of KOTCT and we of them!

The Burke Family in Delta, Colorado is still absolutely in awe over the medallions produced by KOTCT and Daniel Carr's Moonlight Mint. They have received more requests from family members for the medallions so if any of you have extra medallions for sale PLEASE email MedicMichelle with information. You can email her by going to the "members" list and search for her name. Thank you in advance for any consideration you give this request.

I received the memorial medallion today, which was a bit sentimental due to the fact that a local friend of mine died this morning. (He had previously told me he's left me some Russian coins in his will.)
I think Daniel Carr's rendition of Gary Burke is amazing. What a great innovation!
There's some press grease on the rims, but that lends itself to the hand wrought authenticity of the piece.
Cheers!

I've actually still got about 5 pieces that are struck just fine, but I had issues applying the edge lettering and it didn't come out quite right (doubled lettering and/or partially missing edge lettering).   I was going to destroy those "rejects", but didn't yet.   I can send those.   I also have the die which I could also send.   What address should I send them to ?

Thanks.   It isn't really "press grease" - more like planchet grease.   The pewter is sort of a "greasy" metal, with lots of impurity inclusions.

PS:
My condolences on your friend.

Wow! That high pressure must act like a leaching process then.

Once when I was striking some 63mm pewter, I failed to notice that the coin press was adjusted
for blanks that were half the tickness of the blank I just inserted.   Compared to other metals,
striking pewter is like "punching pillows".   When I stamped this one, it literally went "poof !",
and flakes of pewter went flying all over the room - like a feather pillow that had exploded.

I am proud to FINALLY announce that all medallions which are paid in full are IN THE MAIL!!! Sorry for the delay but my private life was a bit in turmoil for a few weeks. Things are returning to normal so I should be back with all of you very soon. (single though!)

Daniel if you would just send the medallions to me if the Burke family has not contacted you. I will see that they get the ten medallions they requested.

I still have NOT received payment for a couple of medallions so I will just sit on them for the time being. Thanks to all of you for another successful quest.

   Trigg ole buddy I am working on it! After a very emotional couple of weeks I am now seeing things in a whole new light and I like what I see! Will keep you posted and do let me know when those medallions reach OZ. Shouldn't be too long as they are coming Priority Mail.  ;)

   I am actually thinking about saving up a few bucks and going down under to visit next year! Got to have goals don't we? Something to look forward to and to focus on? Of course there is also Wyoming and Colorado calling as well! ;)

Wyoming and Colorado you can visit anytime.  Come on down to Aus, I'm sure there are plenty of Knights that will offer you a bed, a mug of mead and a hot meal.

I can offer the spare bed ..... can probably get hold of the mead, but as for the hot meal - unless you like Take Away, you'll have to cook that for yourself I'm afraid.

I have a six bedroom house with only one transient child living at home.  You can have the garage   :D :D :D

Seriously, anytime you, or any other member of the KOTCT find themselves in the Canberra region, you will always have a place to stay.  I even have a spare car.  It might not have any petrol due to a son who thinks the more petrol a car has, the more likely he is to use it rather than his own (which never has any petrol).

There is always a bed for you here in sunny Brisbane.

Just let me know when you are arriving.

Still has not arrived.......if you have a tracking number please check with your post office Terry.

Normal mail takes about 10 days so priority mail should have been a lot quicker.  Ask for a refund!

   It is NOT the refund I am worried about. It's the medallions and I hope we can get Daniel to strike some more if they don't turn up. I have NEVER lost a package and I don't want to start now! Perhaps they are tied up in customs?

I once had a small letter take nearly 4 weeks to get here from the US, normal mail, so I wouldn't panic just yet.

Terry, do you remember what date you posted them?

I realize Priority should be quicker, but you never know. 

A parcel from Canada took a detour via AUSTRIA on it's way to Austr(al)ia.

I had a parcel sent to me by Gary, it took 3 months to arrive.
It must have gone by sea instead of air.

  I will have to see if I can locate the receipt as I know I kept it. Of course I have moved twice in the last month so locating things seems to take a bit longer. One way or another there will be medallions in Australia if I have to ride one of Burkes Turtles myself. Keep me posted Barry! ;)
