In 2007, the last year of the Annual Edition (AE) “Wonders of the Sea” trilogy (Harmony, Eternity, and Community), Swarovski offered a loyalty gift to SCS (Swarovski Crystal Society) members who purchased all 3 crystal figurines in the series. The loyalty gift for “Wonders of the Sea” was the Tang Fish. This was the first and only time Swarovski offered the Annual Edition in both a clear and a colored version.
If the member purchased all three “Wonders of the Sea” clear figurines, they received the clear Tang Fish. If the member purchased all three “Wonders of the Sea” colored figurines, then the member received the colored version of the Blue Tang Fish. And if you purchased all six issues, you received both loyalty gifts.
The loyalty gift was not available for purchase (except on eBay and the secondary markets); all 3 AE's had to be recorded as purchased in Swarovski's member file, or you were not eligible to receive it.
In 2008 through 2010 the “Endangered Species” trilogy was offered. Again, SCS members who purchased all 3 in the series, the Pandas, Gorillas, and Tiger, received a Standing Tiger Cub for their loyalty gift. However, in addition, an identical Standing Tiger Cub was also available for purchase by SCS members for $180, but the 'purchased' Standing Cub was issued under a different product number.
There will be a loyalty gift in 2013 for SCS members who purchase annual editions in 2011, 2012, and 2013, but just what it will be is not yet known. When ordering your Annual Editions, make sure that your dealer confirms that your SCS membership number is being used, when purchased.
