Why do you need all 300?

Yeah I'm hard stuck at 9 biggest thing about this coin is they were actually numbered so i know exactly how many are out there and while it really is impossible to get all 300 in theory it could happen

Wondering if there has been some test pressings of coins that got into the wild? The coin accidentally received at the o2 of the Thompson boling arena is shiny all over whereas the one given out at the show itself seems to have a coppery colour on the inside of the coin? Here is a link to the coin on instagram that was given out in Tennessee. Can anyone confirm that the coin is in two colours or a trick of the light?

My coin. https://twitter.com/aprilshack/statu...86533091168256

My coin looks roughly made I think?

I think that must just be a misprint because the style of your coin is the same as the O2 event so they must have just messed up the press and yours must have gotten mixed not sure how many like yours are out in the wild it might be worth a lot of extra money to crazy collectors like me usually things that have obvious flaws are

Hi! I am the one with the Knoxville coin on Instagram. Found y'all researching these coins. Looks like I committed myself to a pretty difficult collection lol ... just when it looked fun & easy. I just wanted to confirm to you guys that my coin is very shiney and it is silver and gold. I am seeing most coins straight copperish/gold? Are there different variations of all of them? I'm trying to get familiar with The Who, what and where's of the coins.

Mine coin is all gold, but it looks like the one on your Instagram post is copper and gold?

I'm not SUPER following them as the prices just got silly and it looked like there would be one for every gig - but it actually looks like they are mixing up coins and posters a bit - some get both and some gigs get one or the other?

Foo Store C&G Orders - 2 coins (Yes confirmed)
Metro - Chicago (Yes confirmed)
O2 Arena - London (Yes confirmed)
Glen Helen Regional Park San Bernardino - CalJam (Yes confirmed)
Anthem - Washington (Yes confirmed)
Richmond Coliseum - Virginia ????
Greensboro Coliseum - North Carolina (Yes confirmed)
Colonial Life Arena - South Carolina ????
Thompson-Boling Arena - Knoxville Tennessee (Yes confirmed)
US Bank Arena - Cincinnati (Yes confirmed)

Then you have all the coins possibly minted for Lexington Kentucky, Nashville Tennessee & Memphis Tennessee - and all those shows have been postponed... but coins may leak... maybe (if made)
