  1. OK, so minting isn't a requirement, they still are not coins. They are painted manhole covers.


    I guess that we can agree to disagree on their not being geocoins, although I do agree with you that they are painted manhole covers :unsure:



    I'm with Eartha on this but then my Redneck geocoins I'm going to start leaving just to make fun of the whole geocoin thing aren't geocoins either. But I'll put a number on them anyway. Maybe I'll even dremel a dragon (with my lack of artistic talent) on them.




    Will they be available in stainless steel?? If so put me down for 2 :unsure:


    I hope the coins make it up here to Canada! How do you explain that at the border??!?!?!?

  2. January Signal have been shipped.

    GAS have been shipped

    The status indicator was not updated but will be this afternoon. They have been in the mail for several days. I just got mine yesterday in the U.S.

    Thanks for the update!


    I have sent a couple of emails to to the geocoin store about this but they have not responded. Has anyone else been able to contact them?

  5. June 24, 2006 is the tentative date.


    event details will be posted at http://atlanticgeocaching.com


    I've been looking for an excuse to get back to Nova Scotia to do that cache. This might be just the thing. I'll be watching for the event listing.


    We are planning for quite a few people to head our way for the event. Everyone is welcome to come and get a taste of our Maritime hospitality!


    We will have more information on the event at www.atlanticgeocaching.com please keep an eye out for it!


    BTW... There are still Canadian coins for sale! The more we sell the better the event will be!

  6. I like the design... the test is good too. Nice job. Can I order it now?

  7. I just want everyone to know the proceeds of this coin will also be going to a BIG!!! event this summer here in the Maritimes.


    Everyone around the world is invited and welcome to come, we are hoping to have a down home Maritime Kitchen party!! (we will have a big kitchen!!) :unsure:


    Please watch for the event being posted soon.


    email us for more information about this if you are interested!


    Thank you to all who are helping support this celebration of the 1st Geocache in Canada!!!


    If you have any questions or if there are groups interested in purchasing we still have some coins available but they are going fast!



  8. 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!!


  9. Sorry about that here are the details:


    Canada's first Geocache geocoin is a 1.5 inches diameter by 0.12 inches thick made of pewter. This coin was designed by the 1st Geocache in Canada working group located in Nova Scotia and produced in New Brunswick Canada. Making this a 100% locally produced coin.


    The colors are red for the Canadian flag details and X on Nova Scotia and yellow-gold for the coins in and outside the treasure chest.


    All black details are recessed and filled with graphite dust.


    Each coin is packed within its own polybag
