I have them in and hoped to gild them long ago - but stuff got a little crazy. If anyone would like a refund, I can absolutely do that. Otherwise, very late orders are going out with extras for the added wait. I really hope to be able to take the time tomorrow to get the next batch all gilded, packed, and orders shipped.

In other news, this is where we are at with the Viking Proverb round #2. What do we think? I am hoping for a strong second release for this series. The design may change slightly, but it's looking promising as the second in the series. I have some other eagle poses if anyone is interested in taking a peek, but I like this one the most, it's the most dramatic!

I have 25 in and gilded right now, if you want certain serial numbers now would be a good time to say so. These will be priced at $105 + $4.50 S&H. I will post these on the website for purchase shortly.

There aren't sold out yet?

I know this is just a mock up, but the perspective seems a bit off. Almost like the eagle is further back than the archer. Also, the arrow in the wing looks weird because a) there's not a lot of meat to a bird wing for an arrow to stick in and b) aerodynamics are a tricky bitch, an eagle with an arrow to the wing would crash and burn in an instant.

Anyone know if there are any 1oz silver viking helmets (250 Mintage) available anywhere? I have the gilded one but never did pick up the regular. Also how many big money penguins still available?

Hi Ericson mint,

Even though you're cataloge on the website is limited, it's great stuff. I was signing in when the webpage started looking like the Matrix (kidding;) but is your website mobile friendly? I was going to purchase the Big Money Penguin and 2 Fish (the Big dude needs food) but bailed when aspects of the website were blank.

Might you know other places to acquire more of your penguins? The person I'm acquiring them for is going to flip, especially if I can get part of a the family y'all have created.

Thank you for your time.

The design just puts me off especially the killing of an eagle. Not for me.

Me too.. ingrained I guess.
Make it a golden eagle.. they are much rarer but at least they don't eat half the ducklings each year. :lol:

Better yet.. a horned penguin with an arrow in its wing!
