  5. black nickel + nickel matte silver black nickel + gold polished gold
  6. this is the tetradrachmon geocoin (= 4-drachmae, i.e. the ancient greek currency). the design is 2500 years old. it shows the goddess athena (= minerva in rome) and a glaux (owl) with a crescent moon and an olive twig. it comes in 8 editions. the two-tone editions are only avaliable in the complete set. price per piece starts at us$ 12.80 or € 11.50. they are really nicely heavy (50 gram = 1.7oz) for their size (40mm = 1.6") and quite thick (6mm). you won’t be disapointed. of course trackable with its own item. available here and now. antique silver antique gold antique copper matte gold
  7. i suggest that current holder of trackables (that are their own) receive automatically generated reminder e-mails by Groundspeak after a certain period (like 3 weeks, and the weekly) in order to remind them that they have coins/tbs that need to be dropped. i have 100s of coins on their way and they often get forgot by the cachers and i have to remind them to get those trackables moving. these reminders help, but they should be done by Groundspeak. it should be a setting (checkbox) in the trackable listing. thanks for your consideration.
  8. knot in love geocoin a celtic knot work coin with four hearts. the heart line is see-through (cut-out) filled with translucent colors. size 2x2" (51mm), trackable with own icon. more info and pics at geocoins.biz (nickel) (black nickel) (matte gold) (polished gold)

  11. if you think this project has died – it has not: finally, after such a long time, the coin is out ... and almost sold out too. but i will surely remint it in new versions sooner or later. the limited editions (matte gold and matte silver) were sold out within hours. forum member pastor_b who suggested the name, will get a free copy. at this point, only a few black nickel ones are left. if you don't want to miss the 2nd batch (coming only in 2013), it's best to join my geocoin mailing list (just contact me via pm and let me know your e-mail addy). http://geocoins.biz/geo/coins/kaleidoscope_geocoin.html
  12. you might wonder what happened to the kaleidoscope geocoin. well, good news: samples are finally made. it took me a while to find a manufacturer willing to make it. some refused, as the design is «too complicated» for the color filling. yes, it has 225 cavities to fill on the front and 192 on its back. bear in mind that color filling is always done manually. no wonder the manufacturers were scared as hell. well, one was willing. most certain this is a new record in geocoin history with more than 400 spots to fill. correct me if i’m wrong. of course the job is quite labor-intense. and therefore the cost is not that cheap. but i wanted to pull this through. i am quite pleased with the result so far. and i hope at the end of august (2012, that is) we will see the mass production finished. all designs (5 editions) will be revealed then. here is a sneak preview pic (black nickel, front side). and wait ... last but not least: it is huge! 2.5 inches (that is 63mm) diameter! every regular 2" coin looks dwarfish next to it. – the surface increase factor from 2" to 2.5" is 1.56x!
  13. just to all of you who asked for a remint of following coin (and to all other cachers too): the 2008 cheesocoin (cheese geocoin) it's available again. current edition: se2 (matte black nickel) 2" 9 real holes. fully glow-in-the-dark (front and back) coin is not flat, but slightly v-shaped (thickness from 2 to 4mm) needless to say: fully trackable with own icon: note: only the matte black nickel (se2) version is available. the other versions are sold out for ages. http://geocoins.biz/geo/coins/cheesocoin_en.html
  14. good news. after almost two years of deferring, this coin will be produced. finally. scheduled for may/june 2012. sorry for all who have been waiting. some things take a bit longer ...
