That is true, originally I'd decided against but then by the time I thought it would be a good idea (and the only time I'd get a full set of something - posters would be too difficult/expensive), the Metro one was gone and only rarely appears now.

The o2 one just hasn't appeared anywhere as far as I can see (might have been a couple originally but nothing since).

Set up my ebay searches again, hopefully something pops up.

Yep. I remember seeing an O2 coin for sale on evil bay along with a FF “Arms” pin shortly after the show. In hindsight I should have snatched it up. I had just purchased a relic’d Fender custom shop ‘59 Telecaster and was eating Top Ramen so I passed. Oh well. I will take my place in line and hopefully someone will give me an opportunity to get one.

I counted four or five sold in total - two initially at very high prices. One at a relative "bargain" buy now (around £20) and at least one as part of a package with a shirt or set list.

It is pretty odd how none have ever come up since. They never hit the UK store so they must have all been sold. With Avril getting handed a Knoxville coin out of a small bag instead at the event - it almost starts to make me wonder if they cocked up and only pressed 300 for it like the Metro one. They clearly pressed more for the later events but that would explain it.

Avril?! Yer cheeky shit! From what i remember there was one bag of coins and what they had on display on the wall and the counter under the glass. He tried handing me another Knoxville coin from the bag. My O2 coin was from the counter display.

Whoops sorry - someone here at work with the other name

That certainly doesn't sound like they had many. I guess that wasn't the only merch booth but still - does start to sound as if they might have only minted a few hundred.

There was only one place to get merch.

OK wow - the plot definitely thickens then - there should have been a good few coins available. I'm wondering now if even a 300 odd numbered minting got screwed up - and they actually accidentally pressed a bunch of that "different" Knoxville one inside that number. Then you'd have a really rare O2 coin - just as we are seeing.

There are other merch stands inside the o2 arena itself however they only have basics - a few tees/hoody and that sort of thing.

There is a fairly big one on Level 2 seating as you go in but I doubt it had the specifics (i.e. coins etc).

So either way... the main merch stand had a couple of small bags of coins.. and couldn't sell April the right O2 one unless they took one from the display cabinet. That still to me sounds very much like these were minted in the same limited 300 number, and maybe even that was messed up. I'm thinking they later realised the 300 limited number wasn't going to work and made a decision to mint say 1000 or something each from then on - then any not sold could go to the store, removed the specific ref to a limited actual count as they had for Metro (300) and just limit the purchase to 2 per customer.

Just a guess but that's how it seems to me.

The Billings coin has made it onto the store. 5 to go (as I assume there haven't been any in Aus).

Not including the Metro one... or another London one

Upon waking up, a total of 5 coins have been added:

Billings (as previously mentioned)
Spokane
Salt Lake City
Nampa
Casper

Another thing that was added is the coin necklace that they were selling at shows (seems to be a generic design).

Only the Eugene one to surface.

FYI Poppy says the necklaces were sold at some of the shows - so they aren't a store exclusive in case anyone is wondering.

Yep I got Eugene Oregon as missing too - I've hunted all over to see if they miss posted it like Sacramento but no sign of it.

yep, by generic i meant the design of it, from pictures of merch desks I'd seen it being advertised. it's interesting that it covers the tour rather than specific dates.

and so had I... thought it had gone walkabout when I saw all of them apart from the Eugene coin

I'm sure it will appear at some point in the next few days.

btw I'd woken up at 3.30am uk time and the coins apart from Billings (appeared when I originally posted) had appeared by then, just couldn't be bothered to order them until the morning (7am). that'll teach me for falling asleep with my laptop still on.

And all have been dispatched apart from the Billings one, which ironically was the first one I ordered ***


***Just as I typed this I checked and they have all already been dispatched as of 10 minutes ago, I just don't check my email that often at this time of night.

Meanwhile, I asked at two merch stands and was told they weren't doing the coins for the Aussie tour so couldn't pick any up. Weird, they'd know there are avid collectors.

Yep. Just picked up the Eugene coin. Wasn’t there yesterday when I placed my “big” order. Aside from the London 02 Arena coin, I have the complete set. Gotta ask, anyone have a London coin, they are willing to part with?

Shocked there. Live Nation rarely miss an opportunity to make money!
