The Silver Chicken (10 year anniversary silver coin)October 31st, 2011 |
We have a very special day coming up! On November 8th, 2001, we sat down at night and invented Chicken Wings on a paper towel. So we have a few special happenings lined up for the month of November!
And we’ll start with this one: Some of you may be familiar with the American One-Dollar Silver Coin, the Silver Eagle. Now we’re proud to present “The Silver Chicken”!!
In the last years we have noticed that there is definitely a shortage of chicken and/or F4U Corsair coins out there. The Americans have the Eagle, the Chinese the Panda, the Australians the Kangaroo, the Canadians the Maple Leaf, the Somali the Elephant, and so on. You get the point. But no chickens!
So we decided to make our own, in order to do something special to commemorate the coming 10 year anniversary of Chicken Wings. We will use this coin as prize for more contests and events but you can also buy it online as a fun, special, and slightly different gift until our fourth book is ready.
The coins are made out of one ounze of pure silver and we have a very limited quantity minted at this time. And we will maintain a list on where these coins initially went to. A few of them we want to keep ourselves but you can have a limited amount. And the great thing about these coins is (as compared to challenge coins or other cheaper medaillions) that they will always be worth it’s weight in silver, so even your great-grandchildren will be able to inherit something of value, even if Chicken Wings ends up being forgotten by that time.
