  1. I've never seen a fez geocoin anywhere.

    If you do a google images search for 'fez geocoin' you don't see any images of one.

    If you do a google images search for 'Turkey geocoin' you get a few Thanksgiving geocoins. :D


    The above three statements do not prove that there isn't a fez geocoin - but I think it's unlikely.


    MrsB :)


    I wouldn't search for 'Turkey' and 'fez'. As I understand it, the wearing the fez has been outlawed in Turkey since it was founded under Ataturk (after the Ottoman Empire). Perhaps Moroocco? But either way, I don't think an icon, or fez coin exists.

  2. Happy Pi Day! (3.14)


    Anyone have one of those Pi Math coins they'd trade? Email me if you might. On another note, is anyone planning a coin for Pi day in 3 years when it will be 3.1415? And if you throw in the 92635 for 9:26 am and 35 seconds you get even a few more digits! :D Just a thought...

  3. Does anyone have a Dala Horse coin they'd be willing to trade? I tried in the math trade, but didn't get it. Thanks! Here's what I have to offer.

    RECEIVING (soon I hope) :)



    One more to go from: (MAMOREB) :D


    Thanks everyone for the trades!


  5. I think this is a very cool coin! I definitely want to get some of these. The only thing I'd "object" to (ok maybe "clarify" is a better word) is this part:

    The back of the coins shows a Smith "diagram." This "was" used by electrical and electronics engineers to determine impedance and related things.

    The Smith "Chart" (as it's more commonly called) "is" :) used by electrical engineers. As an Antenna and RF Engineer I personally use it on a daily basis, as do most of the folks in my line of work. It's a great tool, and even 70 years after its invention, it's still extremely useful.


    Anyway, Great Job! Looking forward to seeing these!

  6. 1. when, where and what geocoin did you see first?

    >> It was November, 2004, in Tucson, AZ. I went for a 7.5 mile trail run to rescue a coin that had been there since the 4th of July. What I found was a USA Geocoin (2004, I suspect, but possibly an '03). All I know is that it was the allure of the icon that got me. And the icon back then wasn't even that interesting. It was just a gold coin that said USA (I think) or maybe just had the "cents" sign on it. But I wanted to see what it was all about.


    2. when and what geocoin did you first buy?

    >> I really had no idea where to buy coins for the LONGEST time. I didn't really start looking to buy until the summer of 2006. And the first one I got was the August '06 GCC "Last Cache of the Day" or some name like that.


    3. when did you make your first personal coin? N/A if you haven't yet, why not?

    >> Haven't done it. I have 1 idea that may be unique enough to do, but I just haven't really got the heart to sink the $ into it. And I'm not really keen on doing a partial deal w/ a company. For me it's kind of "all or nothing", so it's been "nothing".


    4. when and what did you trade your first geocoin?

    >> I think it was with Jake of Team AI, but I'm not even sure exactly. I think I traded him for one of the AZ coins, and that was by mail. I later met he and Nero up in Phoenix and did some trading there, too. So that would be my 1st "face-to-face" trades, in case that's a subcategory. :)


    5. did you find the forums first or a geocoin first?

    >>Finding coins in caches came first by a LONG time. I didn't find the forums until summer '06, or later, after I really started to look to buy coins.


    Thanks for the cointest! :D It's been an interesting walk down memory lane for me, and it's been interesting to see what other people found before me!

  7. Have some older and rarer coins that are my extras for trade (or sale if they are trackable), email me with your trade list. :o
