Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Potf_b12


___________________________________________________________________

Welcome to My Little Coin Limelight!

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Top11


In November 2008, I started on a crazy mission of collecting the entire set of 62 POTF vintage coins as well as the Droids and Ewoks coins. After a few chats with Peter here on TIG, it looks like I couldn’t have picked a worse time to start collecting them from a financial point of view. But at the time I had just finished completing my set of 37 Star Wars Celebration medallions and after seeing the stunning art work and effort put into them, I thought it would be great if I could get all the original POTF coins that inspired them.

I actually bought my first POTF coin, R2-D2, in 1999 whilst a student in living in Canada for a year, but I ironically chose not to buy anymore as I thought they were too overpriced at the time. I am still kicking myself on that costly decision. Anyways, it has been I while since I first started venturing out on my coin collection and with a couple of recent biggie coins now in my collection, I have finally reached a stage where I need just 10 POTF coins to complete my goal of a full set.

Many of my coins come from Ex-Kenner employee sources or are very much mint, so I would like to finish out as I started and have a set of 62 mint coins. Getting the last coins is not going to be easy, quick, or cheap. So I thought I take a step back and show off my collection as it is right now. My plan is to take my time and enjoy my collection whilst I save a little here and there over a number of months in order to buy my next coin. When I do, I will update the post. I think I am going to enjoy the ride and as I pick up the final coins one at a time, I plan to do it in a way that is sustainable and does not jeopardise my financial position. Using my game plan it will probably take me a good couple of years to finish the set of 62. So I thought it will be good idea to look at this thread in the years to come and see the progress I made.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Top11

Progress to Date:



Although I am actively looking for all 80+ Kenner production coins, my priority is to finish the initial 62 POTF coins first, then pick up any remaining Droids or Ewoks coins I need after that. I am following Gus’ original guide (second revision) in order to categorise my collection. At the moment I have managed to get hold of 52 54 POTF coins so I need just 10 7 POTF coins to finish the set:

  • 1 from Category III


  • 3 from Category IV


  • 4 from Category V


Below is my current checklist for my coin collection. I have been using an Excel sheet to keep track of my coins as I bought them, noting down the logo and from whom I bought them. I as buy a new coin, I will update the list so you can see which ones I still need





Current Display for My POTF Coins:


I have found a nice little coin album that stores the coins perfectly. It not the best colour I know, but the sleeves inside are double sided - so I can see front and back views of the coins at the flick of a page. I suppose I could always customise it properly when I have a chance. I did strongly consider making a frame at the start of my collection to display them all, but for the moment I want something portable that will allow me to flick though and enjoy the coins whilst on the sofa or take with me when I need to travel home. Additionally, if I wanted to check something quickly, I don’t have to take the frame apart in order to get at a coin as you can easily take out the coins in the album.

POTF, Droids, and Ewok Coins (Displayed in the folder A to Z):



Below are photos of my current vintage coin collection including all my POTF, Droids and Ewoks. I am hoping to pick up a few more before the end of the year but I want mint ones which may slow down my progress.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Coin_a29

Thanks to Dallas (and some help from Chris), I got my 52nd in the bag: Lumat (I haven't updated the above Photo yet though. Additionally Shawn has help me a get a nice upgrade for my Emperor coin which I am looking forward to getting.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Lumatc10



bounce bounce bounce Update 19/July/2011:


A massive thanks to Gus for helping me completing my Category III coin set and for knocking a tough coin off my list. Below are the Creatures and Leia Boussh POTF coins. These coins are from the collection of an Ex-Kenner employee that Gus bought from. My Plan is to get at least one more coin before end of 2011.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Leia_c10



bounce bounce bounce Update 16/09/2011:

Thanks to Gus again I was able to knock off another coin for 2011 as hoped. This one is the Droids coin from the Category IV.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Droids12

There's 3 tough coins left in this cat before I am in the home straight of Category V. I am not sure how fast I will knock off the last three, but I am workiing Gus on a biggie next which should be paid off around Dec/Jan coming.



My Alternative and Prototypes Coins:


I have a four Alternative and Prototype coins in my collection:

Luke Stormtrooper - No Eyes Production Coin
Small Luke X-Wing Prototype Coin
Alternative Back A-Wing Pilot Prototype Coin
Light Gold (63RD Colour Test) A-Wing Pilot Prototype Coin


Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Coin_a13

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Coin_a14

I would like to get a Ewok bronze colour test coin next, if possible.



Vintage POTF Coin Mailers:


As well as my Luke Jedi Focus, I am also working on completing my Kenner Mailers; two of which are are POTF coin releated. The first is the POTF coin mailer. The coin offer was advertised on ROTJ cards with a special yellow sticker. Shown below is my ROTJ Imperial Commander MOC with the POTF Coin Offer sticker.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Potf_c17 Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Potf_c14

In order to receive a free POTF coin, you had to send the POP and the sticker (both cut out from the card) and a dated till receipt.
All the coins that were sent individually to consumers came in small manila envelopes such as the one shown below. There are a number of mailing envelopes with slightly different lables which I plan to get when other priorities are completed, but for now here's my only one:

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Potf_c13

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Potf_c12

Here I have managed to pick-up a mailer envelope from Eddie Albano. The Luke Jedi coin comes from Tom N. Who acquired a large a surplus stock of POTF left over from the consumer relations department.

The next item only reached the prototype stage of development. It is a POTF coin album (with space for 18 POTF coins) that Kenner planned to give away as mail-in offer to be advertised on the never-released POTF 93-Backs. If released, it would have come with a special light gold coloured coin. I didn’t get the light gold coloured 63rd coin. But I have placed Tom N’s Luke Jedi in the frame for display and plan to get an “Oscar” frame for it.

Craigy's POTF Coin Quest ----- Update 16/09/2011 -----  Only 6 to go! Protot12

This piece particularly interested me as someone had originally handwritten numbers in four of the slots. It may be possible that someone was referring to a layout of specific coins for a photo shoot or a demonstration within Kenner as the album came from the collection of an Ex-Kenner Employee

Nicely designed Limelight Craigy, you've been busy mate! That's an impressive set of coins. I really like the little red booklet where you can see the other sides of the coin - bonus that it is portable and easy for reference. The prototype holder just looks really cool, that's such a nice item. Also digging the 4 alt/prototype coins - esp the lil Luke XW! Good luck in your continued hunt for the others, look forward to the updates Cool

A very well presented and sound overview of your collection and background information. Job well done, Craig!

I am not a coin collector, but after reading all this, it is very tempting. Luckily my Ledy collection, takes all the cash right now. Very Happy

Thanks Carl, since your posting, I have managed to secure two from Gus. I am hoping to get at least one more coin, if not two. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you have in a couple of months!

Hi Chaz, Thanks very much for your kind words too! I have committed to a payment plan at the moment but if they are still available when I complete I would love to touch base to work something out

Cheers Paul mate, the coin album booklet comes from WHSmith of all places! The pocket size needed is Large 2x6 coin spaces, though when you buy the album you will get a few leafs free. I am glad you like the prototype album. It’s a shame that these little coin albums were made as they would have make a stunning display. I will keep an eye out for you regarding the lil x-wing prototype coin. They are surprisingly cheap for a proto coin.

I’m glad you enjoyed the limelight. I will extend the background a bit after the move over to include the Medallions that started my coin hunt. I just need to pick-up a Japan frame for the CJ medallions.
Your ledy collection is ace but if you do decide on collecting at least there’s plenty of us coin collectors on TIG to lend a hand!

Hi Tommy! Thanks for the kind words too! I was on 10 but now I have only 8 to go. It still a long way to go and with the final Luke Jedi Kenner MOC I need to complete a USA run I probably only be able to secure two more coins this year at the most. But it is fun enjoying the collection grow. Any new LJ pick-ups yet?

Two more POTF coins secured so only 8 to go!

A massive thanks to Gus for helping me completing my Category III coin set and for knocking a tough coin off my list. Below are the Creatures and Leia Boussh POTF coins.

Great collection Craig. Some very cool looking coins and great to see them all together in your display. Interesting about the POTF display prototype.

Cool I love seeing these coins. I have had the same thought but never gotten to it. I have no clue of value I got Amanaman and B-Wing pilot coins, tried to sell them cheap some years back but no one wanted them Razz

nice collection , I just started my set this year and I am at around 30 , I think 22 I am keeping for my set . When I first started I got some of the category 1 coins that weren't in the best of shape and I want to upgrade them , and I have a few doubles from a small lot I bought on ebay . I have been trying to pace myself now that I am into the category 2 coins to just 1 or 2 a month ( unless I find a really good deal )

Hi all,

I hope every one is doing OK... I've being busy moving countries, new job, buying a house and getting married so haven't had a chance to say hello that often.

Attached is my latest and sadly last POTF coin - Luke Rebel Leader on a Tauntaun. I was lucky enough to get this one from Gus some time back but never got time to list it due to moving countries and all the rest.

Sadly - as I will now be selling off the coin collection and almost everything else to help raise funds. I got as far 56 coins out of the 62 so not too bad considering many were from Ex-Kenner Employee sources.


I have gone though "Cold Turkey" with the collecting front in an effort to sort ourselves out. Now we are married and have a house We are hoping to start a family of our so the Star Wars hobby has been put on the back burner for now. I will come back to the vintage collecting hobby one day but now's a window for family before we get too old.
