Any good news to give me... perhaps something like you found the perfect case to house Kia's so we can play with them without fear and gloves on?  Smiley 
The only decent cases I have found are the floating cases. Sorry man. Wink

I know guys I feel terrible about all of this. I feel let down by almost every one of my suppliers. I'm trying to stay optimistic and at the same time am dreading having to go through any or all of these issues in the future. I can say I have done everything within my power, including going way over budget on every aspect of this project. I am shipping what I can, and while you might see someone with 10 moon bars already in hand, they are more than likely waiting for 10 more. This project has taken every ounce of my energy to complete and I won't rest until it is finished. The latest word from the mint is that the replacement coins have been struck and are currenty being enameled. I'm tired of waiting just like those of you who still are.
Please don't feel discouraged by the stepping stones that are sometimes thrown in the artist's way. Obviously I cannot determine the extent of issues you had to deal with.
However I can definitly say your work is amazing and most if not all of us hope you will continue your journey of bitcoin artworks for many years to come.

You’ve got far more going on in your pieces than in any coin (crypto or not ) I’ve ever seen. My first ever bitcoin collectable and still my favorite. Also agree w/Kryptowerk..really don’t want this to give you doubts for the future. Thx for all the updates.

Glad to hear things are moving along and a priority has been taken for quality of the remaining bars.  These error bars will definitely be special.  Smiley

Hey MJ, For transparency, considering your auction ends tomorrow and to use this as an example, yes one error will be included with suite 13. I have the Two Bitcoin and 500,000 bits bars completed, and I sent back the 100,000 bits coin for a better one. So because this suite is missing one bar, included with the completed three-piece suite will be one additional error coin.

Each error coin(s) is already assigned to its new owner based on what serial was assigned to them pre-delivery of the coins. Because I'm not sharing the details of this error or how many are assigned to who yet, I advise potential bidders not to give too much consideration to the error, but just think of it as a sweet bonus. It was a simple mistake by the mint. They are not physically deformed in any way... in fact it's hard to spot the error at first glance.

When I get the coins from the mint, the suites will be the first to ship, followed by sets and then singles.

10/27/2017 Update

An nice update from NWTM:

The restrike for the corrected coins was delayed slightly because the mint had to order new silver and make new blanks when we kept the error coins instead of using them for a re-melt. Good news is that the new silver was received, blanks were made and your remakes have all been re-pressed/minted. I’ve seen them personally yesterday and they are correct (first thing I checked). As of now they should be getting gold plated and then enameled. I will keep you informed of more progress when I get it.

Best,

Max-

Ordered and paid at the end of Feb. Some people got theirs mid September. Its now the start of November. I would very much like to understand when I am likely to see mine

Last i heard the new coins were being sent to him and all was getting closer to final assembly.  I'm sure we'll see a update soon.

11/17/2017 Update

I’m digging through two weeks of emails here for this update. I have been in constant communication with the mint, while trying my best not to be a nuisance to them. And while I have not been entirely happy with the length of time this is taking, I have worked to be courteous and understanding to ensure this project is completed without any hard feelings between myself and my supplier, NWTM. I believe they are working with the resources they have to finish this project correctly and are wanting to put this behind them as much as myself.

I will basically be sharing some snippets from a few of the emails below.

“The restrike for the corrected coins was delayed slightly because we had to order new silver and make new blanks when we kept the error coins instead of using them for a re-melt.”

“It’s moving forward, but it’s at a snail’s pace. I only wish I had the skills to get these coins made for you.” ~ my account representative.

This week the Mint agreed to go ahead and ship me the error coins to mark that off the list.

I was also told that the 117 coins being reproduced are being completed in two batches. I was told they started one batch and the second batch when more silver came in, and that the second batch also moved to the front of the line.

The first batch is in enameling.

Yesterday I received the following email:

“The coins in enameling are still there.  The lead enameller has been sick for a couple days.  Hopefully she returns today.  I did see the other batch of coins were pressed and I gave my OK to send them to the finishing department to soften the edges and prepare them for the gold plating.  They are at the front of the line but there are only a few people basically allowed to work on them, the most skilled in the factory at the different steps. I’ll start taking some pics of the coins.  At least then we’ll have “proof of life” that they exist!”

I requested they serial the first batch with the coins that had the lowest serials, to avoid confusion and also so that I can begin the assembly process on those awaiting their suites, and sets. In a best-case-scenario, I will receive the second batch before or soon after I have completed assembling the first batch into their bars, and shipped those. To assemble 117 more bars will take 10 days of my time as well.

I will post a new update when photos are shared next week, and as soon as I know more. If it gets to the point that I must cancel my Christmas travel plans to ensure everyone receives these prior to Christmas, I am prepared to do that – but I do hope I receive these long before then. I also had plans to release a new Kialara prior to Christmas, and that has now been postponed to early 2018 as my hands are tied.

As always, my sincerest thanks to everyone for continuing to be patient with me on this. Each and every one of you are very important to me, and I could not bring it upon myself to ship coins that were inferior to others. I do hope the added gift(s) errors make this all worth the wait.

Max-
