  9. Really nice coin! I would love to trade for one drop me an email if anyone wants to trade!
  10. Rappelez-vous que ceux-ci ne sont pas fabriqués en Chine comme toutes les autres pièces avec la couleur sur elles. Si nous les avions fait dehors de l'Amérique du Nord, le prix serait probablement entre 7.00 ou 8.00 au lieu de 8.60 que nous chargeons. Also remember these are not being made in China like all of the other coins with colour on them. If we had them made out side of North America then the price would possibly be 7.00US or 8.00US instead of the 8.60US we are charging. These will be made in North America, Fredericton New Brunswick to be exact. The icon is still being worked out but it will be something that reflects Canada and the 1st Cache. Thanks to all those who have ordered!!

  18. I know there are people in Canada now working on GC trackable geocoins. So watch for them to be announced soon!
  19. I would like to thank everyone again for purchasing our coins! We are excited to see our Maritime Geocaching Logo on the coin and to be able to share it with the world. All invoices have been sent out and if you would like to be on the waiting list or have questions about your order please contact me through my geocaching profile or email me @ maritimegeocoins@gmail.com I will post when the coins have arrived and when they start shipping which I expect to be the beginning of February. I will be updating the web site http://geocache.webhop.org/coins with the shipping information as well.
  20. Nice Idea!! What are the prices going to be?
  21. Oh, you mean like the Conn... err, nevermind. Go ahead and say it. Connecticut. Tho$e coin$ are $elling for way too much. How about a reason for the $10 price of these coins? Are you just trying to get funds for your group? It looks like your back is the same stock die that dozens of other coins have used already, so I fail to see why the cost is that high. And no, I'm not whining, because I'm not buying any of these. I agree. There is nothing wrong with charging whatever the market will pay for a product. That's how a for-profit business runs (like the coinclub). I think most people are questioning a non-profit (I assume) organization charging that sort of price. if this is a fund raiser, so be it. I didn't know that the guidelines allowed the trackable coins to be sold at that sort of profit though? (we are also assuming profit... I paid $5.50 per coin for 300 coins with 3 dies and 12 colors. This one does not look that complex, maybe your supplier is overcharging?) Wow.. That is an excellent price! These were more than that! I am assuming it is a U.S. price? (We have to add from 20% and up to that depending on the exchange rate!) I know people are assuming we are making a big profit on the coins, if they only knew the all of the costs!
  22. I would like to thank all of those who have purchased the coins! They are currently sold out but we have started a waiting list.
