Concept to Coin: Bigfoot

Below is the evolution of the Icon Coins Bigfoot Limited Edition Collectors Coin.

The top row shows the concept art/design for our Bigfoot coin, which was designed combining hand drawn elements with photographs and digitally created items to depict Bigfoot in its natural habitat. The middle row shows the 3D rendering of the concept used to create the die used by the mint to strike the coins.  And finally, the bottom row shows the finished Bigfoot coins, struck in heavy brass with an antique gold finish.  Only 500 of these coins where created and include a numbered C.O.A and velvet coin pouch.

Bigfoot Coin Creator Talks Inspiration

With the Bigfoot Collectors Coin on its way I wanted to share with you my inspiration for the project. Being a pop culture kid from the 70s and 80s, it would have been nearly impossible for Bigfoot to have escaped my radar. As far back as I can remember Bigfoot has been an enjoyable part of my life in one way or another.

bigfootwildboycomp

One of my earliest interests in Bigfoot was the Saturday morning show “Bigfoot and Wildboy” by Sid and Marty Krofft. I was a huge “Land of The Lost” (another Krofft show) fan already and “Bigfoot and Wildboy” quickly became a favorite. This was around the same time as Star Wars was a big hit, and I was one of those kids who had all the action figures. Between recreating scenes from the Death Star, I would take my Luke Skywalker figure and my Chewbacca and use them as Bigfoot and Wildboy. Good times!

shoeslarge

I would watch Planet of the Apes on television as they often aired those films on Sunday afternoons. I used to put gloves on my feet and mimic Cornelius. Then I saw a commercial for Buster Brown Bigfoot shoes! I didn’t really care what the shoes looked like, but the bottoms had a footprint that would leave Bigfoot tracks on the ground. I had to have them!! They even came with a Bigfoot ring/whistle… Again, good times!

andre

Being a huge wrestling fans, I instantly recognized the great Andre the Giant as Bigfoot on The Six Million Dollar Man episodes “The Secret of Bigfoot” Parts I and II. I also instantly realized that the later episodes to feature Bigfoot were not Andre in the role, but rather actor Ted Cassidy (who I did not recognize).

When I was a little older I liked to read books about Bigfoot. I must have spent hours staring at images from the classic Patterson film. I was always a little confused in school as to why the Bigfoot books were in the same section as the books on Dracula, Frankenstein, and such, as clearly they are fiction…….

As an adult I have enjoyed plenty of documentaries about Bigfoot, along with any number of movies presenting various fictional Bigfoot situations. Everything from Harry and the Henderson’s to horror movies. Today there is a large variety of Bigfoot info available online and on television, and I try to take in as much of it as I can. Bigfoot is a very alluring subject that pulls so many people in. Believers and non-believers alike. To me there is no debate. Bigfoot is out there!

My line of collectible coins at IconCoins.com is an extension of all things that have interested me as I try to keep my work related to things that I love, and the subject Bigfoot is surely one of those things. The Bigfoot Collectors Coin is for all of us who have enjoyed Bigfoot, experienced Bigfoot, and continue to have Bigfoot in our lives. Its a great keepsake for anyone, young and old. Thank you to everyone who has already ordered their Bigfoot coin! If you have not, please do as the earlier you order, the lower the number you get from the limited edition. There will only be 500 of these, and they are moving quickly!

Thank you and I hope you enjoy!

Icon Coins is happy to announce that we have designed a new collectors coin to raise awareness for the importance of shark research and conservation, with proceeds going to help fund ground breaking work in this area.

With the success of our 40 Years of Fear collectors coin in 2015, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of JAWS, we heard from a lot of people around the world who were also interested in real life sharks.  One of the most common requests we received during that time was to do a special coin for shark research. We have selected Ralph S. Collier’s Shark Research Committee to receive funding from this project to help the continuation of their ongoing work and dedication to the field of shark education and discovery.  Mr. Collier is a well known contributor to the field having founded the Shark Research Committee over 50 years ago.  His contributions have been consistent and plentiful in furthering the understanding of shark behavior and ecology.  Currently, the Shark Research Committee is developing a unique method of shark DNA research that will broaden the boundaries of various aspects of shark conservation.  Like many organizations, the Shark Research Committee relies on independent fundraising efforts to continue its work and we are happy to help!

Each 1.75 inch Limited Edition Collectors Coin is die struck in heavy solid brass with an antique silver finish and features a highly detailed 3D sculpt.  Only a limited number of these special coins will be minted worldwide.  Along with the coin itself, each shark enthusiast will also receive a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a velvet coin pouch.

Pre-Orders are now open for you to reserve your coin!

Pre-Order your Shark Research Collectors Coin today to show your support for shark research and conservation efforts!  Pre-Orders will receive the lowest numbered coins in the limited edition and are assigned on a first come first serve basis. Pre-Orders will ship on or before the release date of August 28, 2016.

UPDATE! Randomly selected pre-orders will be selected to receive a special FREE BONUS with their order!! If you have already reserved your Shark Research Collectors Coin, you are already eligible!
