  1. count me in as well! I have been somewhat lost touch with this thread but definitely interested in anotehr race!!!! sounds like fun! What ARE the 80 fests anyways? or is it a secret?
  2. nice. put me on the watch list of that coin
  3. It really depends on the design.... if you have tons of details then 2" coin might be the way to go. But 1.75" is also a decent size
  4. Not the bad coin, the map hoped front all bustles about writing fills me to come back, I like yeah, that is how I would read it as but obviously there is something lost in the original english to chinese translation.
  5. LOL.... the only thing I can figure out for sure is 我喜欢, which is "I like it"... LOL Something about hoping the map... busy text/wording.... fill with something... hmmm..... no clue... LOL
  6. very interesting. Thanks for all the tips! d
  7. You CAN'T reinforce with tape? meaning... you are not allow to scotch tape over the adhesive seal to ensure nothing falls out???
  8. nice. that's all I need to know. Thank you. PS it would almost become a challenge ya know.... see how many coins you can squeeze into the envelope
  9. I have sent as many as 14 coins in the Flat Rate Envelope...I wrapped each in newsprint, taped them down to a piece of cardboard, layed another card on top and stapled them together. I probably could have gotten anothe 6 in there. So, $4.05 to ship 20 coins is not a bad deal at all. yeah, but I use bubble wrap so I'm not sure if that would be considered too big for the "envelop"
  10. Has anyone tried sending a whole bunch of coins using Priority Mail Flat-Rate Envelope? I wonder if they would allow the envelope to have such thickness....
  11. speaking of being heartbroken.... it has been 2 months since I mailed the green jeep form to Groundspeak and I have not recieved anything... I think I'm out of luck
  12. You're right. we SHOULD show geocoin the same respect as a TB. However, some will, and some won't. Just like we all SHOULD follow the speed limit (which I don't, sometimes) and SHOULD shut up when we go to the movies (which I do, most times). Some respect others and some don't. I like the idea of posting the coin "as stolen" when it is taken without permission. But like what an earlier poster said, they will just stop logging the coins. I mean, if they're going to put the geocoin on the shelf anyway, why would they log it? Seems like there really isn't a win-win situation....
  13. UPDATE: I have sent the design to the coin mint and should have final images of the Hong Kong geocoin in a couple of days! Reservations for the coin would likely start some time this weekend. Thanks and will keep everyone updated! d
  14. can't wait to get mn traded coin!!!! thx! d

  16. Exactly how we feel. If your promote your coin as a 'trade only coin' and sell them on ebay. Then you mislead the people that traded with you. If someone else sells your coin, you can't really stop that. Just keep track of your numbered coins and who you traded with, figure out who sold it and put them on your black list for future trading reference. Coins are not that important that I will worry about someone else selling my coin and thinking I need to blacklist them. When coins get to this stage it will no longer be fun. Although I do not think it is wrong to sell the first set of a Trade Only coin to reap the profits from the scalper I have removed the TSD V2 coins. I never intended to decieve anyone as to the nature of these coins and as such I will stay true to the term Trade Only. If I had wanted to decieve I would not have listed under my own handel Now lets see how fast these end up being sold by someone else since I just made then more marketable. And don't worry I didn't record any numbers ... or did I. Team Sand Dollar For future reference, if you are considering selling a couple sets to cover costs or whatever for your trade only coins, just make it clearc on your first posting. Most people can apprecinate that. Choose the least favorite numebr set and sell away...
  17. Good point. Regardless on how heavy you advertise a coin as trade-only, it WILL, sooner or later, be sold as a commodity. I would imagine the more you police on a particular coin, the more people would want to get their hands on it, and the higher the value the coin become.
  18. Yeah, I think I wouold drop the "I Love" part. I'm actually using the flower as the icon. I'm also trying not to onver crowd the coin. There really isn't a lot of space on a coin with so much details on it already. I like the text on coin edge idea. I would have to investigate that with mint next week. I also think that I would leave "Hong Kog" in chinese. If I find a coin in a language that I don't understand from a cache , I would try to find ount what it means. That can be part of the fun as well...
  19. I remember a while back I saw some flips on ebay stores and they were priced reasonably... haven't researched that for a while though
  20. Actually, funny that you mention.... according to geocaching.com, "地理藏寶" is geocaching in chinese (it's interesting what you can find from the gc website).... well, the direct translation is "geographic treasure". It doesn't really ring geocaching to me in chinese but, when was the last time you say the word to someone for doesn't know the activity and they go... wwhhaaaat? I will give this idea more thoughts... Problem I foresee is non-chinese spreakers would not understand what it says on the coin, and I might have to have both english and chinese on it... I dont want to crowd a coin that is already busy enough by Which brings up a point made by Bryan from Groundspeak, that non-chinese speakers might not understand "trackable at geocaching.com" in chinese at the back of the coin, thus would not know it is a trackable coin (or where to track) What do you guys think?
