Google Translate turned it into this. (I am impressed by the donation.)


PRESS RELEASE
Trollbeads bring coins for the first time for bracelets and necklaces on the market!

Trollbeads is pleased to announce the new release of a totally unique product known - the troll - Mint! This individual piece of jewelry is made from high quality sterling silver and is in terms of innovative design within the Trollbeads family unique.

Organized by the talented Danish designer Thor Høy Troll designed coin can be found on the one hand, the familiar logo Trollbeads - the two trolls that for the leather strap or the "form" for the chain leading hole. On the other side of the coin, our beautiful earth is shown along with an exquisite heart, which stands as a symbol of universal love, which brings us closer to each other across cultural and national boundaries.

The Troll - coin is from 1 September initially available only in Germany and does not belong to the main Trollbeads collection.

During the implementation phase in Germany from 1 September to 30 November 2011 will be EUR 20 per sold Troll - coin to three different charities.
During the implementation phase in Germany from 1 September to 30 November 2011, a portion of sale proceeds (EUR 20 per coin sold) to three different charities.

Part of the contribution goes to the charity SOS Children's Villages in Germany who are advocating for nearly 60 years for the needs, concerns and rights of children.

Another part goes to the Albert Schweitzer Association of Family and Children's Villages works, the girls and boys who can not grow up in their own families for over 50 years, a home. Many of these children were neglected, abused or misused. By living together in family-like structures they are learning again have confidence in themselves and their environment and to lead an independent life.

In addition, we donate to the "Kindernothilfe". Their goal is a world in which children and young people have the chance of a decent life, can develop their potential and take their families and communities together with their development into their own hands. News: Drought in the Horn of Africa.

Learn more about the projects of aid agencies on www.TrollbeadsUniverse.com. Please help us by purchasing a troll - the first coin September to 30 November. The dealer in your area, go to www.TrollbeadsUniverse.com

I mentioned it on facebook already, but there's a funny error in the brochure: The text Brightonbelle posted above talks about Thor Høy being the designer. On the same page of the leaflet a little lower it says beneath a close-up of the coin: "Designer: Søren Nielsen" scratch ???
So guys: Who of the two of you designed it? Razz Laughing

Actually we have no idea yet... Puzzled

We do know other countries will get a charity bead, it could also be the case that certain countries get their own charity bead. We hear rumors that Canada is working on a design of their own.

But at this point this coin is available from 1st September through 30th November in Germany which leads to think it will not be released elsewhere at the same time.

it would be nice if each country gets their own charity coin, It would mean we could collect "coins" and in the end have a total charity bracelet., i.e. the green glass bead and now the coin.

A nice touch, I know the kimono set was part but so little was given to charity and I don't think this was approached by all countries.

However a charity bracelet built up slowly.. thats nice. In fact the green smiley.. was quite hard to match in with my designs.. not if there are two coins accompanying it..they also make very nice spacers.

Another point, if I read the press release right, the charity aspect is only from 1st sept, to end november and its 20 euros per bead, so thats quite a nice charity aspect.. 10 coins and you donate 200 euros to a childrens charity.. mmmm if I could I would but not certain. Nice thought and its the thought that counts I will stick to 2 coins for now.. till I get to see them in my silver tarnished hands.

i just went to trollbeaduniverse to see the retailer in my area and i didn't see any info re: the coin. is this because my "local" retailer is in the usa and not in germany??

also, i tried to access the weblink to the german shop and it wouldn't let me in... does anyone know how i can order the coin directly from the german shop??

The link here didn't work for me this afternoon, either, capesandra.
So I went and found the coin in Nadia's shop:

http://www.trollbeads-baden-baden.de/eb11501-2644.html

I haven't tried to order it yet myself. Somebody said they thought she was out of stock, but she still has it listed.

....

It is a nice donation! Charity beads do provide extra warm fuzzies! sunny Would someone please explain the relationship, if any, between this coin and Horn of Africa reference? Are they donating a portion to the drought and famine there? Or is it a link to news about the crisis in the Somali region that happens to show up on the site? scratch (couldn't find info and am language challenged) I so hope they do a coin for that cause that can be widely purchased. And cheers to Rainyday for her auctions to this end!! http://www.beadthrilled.com/t4032-rainyday-s-charity-auctions#66121

Thanks Smile ordered mine, can't wait to see it irl!

Would have thought they would have made more for charity if it were more widely available though....but hey ho x

I LOVE the idea of having several charity coins though.. I remember my playing with my fathers old coin collections as a little girl so would naturally need to get them ALL for that reason hehe x

I don't know but if I had to guess it would be $59 US.

It seems that the price in Euros is also the price in dollars. We do a brisk business with Trollbeads lovers on vacation buying Trollbeads from us while there here because it is so much cheaper. This is the reason we can't ship overseas.

Thanks, Kerry....I was thinking the same...guess I will wait until it is available here. That is a significant price difference to pay for my impatience:) and I really want two coins, as well. Please let me know as soon as you have them, I would really appreciate it!

I've heard the price will likely be $ 69,- which is approximately same as current German price of € 59,- -/- 19% VAT. Makes sense... Wink
