A few years ago, there was a particular fan project that minted some decorative coins with MLP designs on them. I bought a set. Even willingly paid extra, since it was on kickstarter or something. To this day, I haven't recieved anything from it. The artist in question has posted updates on their DeviantArt where they were showing themselves selling those coins at conventions. By this point, I'm sure that the bitch just used the crowdfunding to get a production run of a product that she'd essentially sell twice.
