The long await is over! The 2018 Karas Pen Club Coin is here.
This years coin is 1.25" in diameter and .125" thick, minted from distressed nickel silver by Shire Post Mint. Artwork designed right here in house by Dan Bishop. The 2018 coin features a NASA space program inspired motif that includes a stylized rocket ship inside a triangular shaped "badge" being launched into a star grid system. We've included the years at the bottom that the coin is valid for but also as an homage to specific projects that had a beginning and end date.
Inaugural members renewing their memberships will be given their "coin number". New members will receive an unnumbered coin, as we will not be numbering the coins going forward.
The benefits for the Club Members will change a bit in the coming year. Club Members will still have early access to small batch, special release, and limited editions. There will be fewer discounts on those early access items. Added benefits will include actual Pen Club Exclusive pens; items only available to Pen Club Members. These will be specially curated items in colors and/or materials not offered anywhere else.
Not convinced yet? Find any Karas Pen Co employee acting in an official manner (pen shows, meet ups, KPC headquarters, etc.), present the coin, and you'll be given some cool Karas Pen Club only swag. The swag will rotate so you never know what you'll get. We're going to provide swag to those members that can't make it to one of our physical locations via a special Club Member Newsletter that will be published a few times in the coming year.
