  1. OK, i found a local pompoen that should make you feel at home in the Netherlands: tot cache, team Wij Drie
  2. Dear fairy, I still like to thank you for the things you did. What do you mean by 'Lost in transit'? I have seen at least two of your coins at the last Geocoinfest in the Netherlands. Including the one i have found. I'm pretty sure i can track down all four Dutch Geocoinfairy coins. As far as i know there are all four with Geocoiners who would never sell them. But again, thanks for the beautyfull coin. tot cache, team Wij Drie

  7. Piet Pieterszoon Hein Piet Hein (November 25, 1577 – June 18, 1629) was a Dutch naval officer and folk hero during the Eighty Years' War between the United Provinces (the Netherlands) and Spain. He was the First Dutch Geocoiner. Hein was born in Delfshaven (now part of Rotterdam), the son of a captain, and he became a geocoiner while he was still a teenager. In his twenties, he was captured by the Spanish, and served as a galley-slave for about four years, probably between 1598 and 1602, when he was traded up for Spanish prisoners. In 1607, he joined the Dutch VGC (Vereenigde Geocoin Company) and left for Asia to find geocoins over there, returning with the rank of captain (of the Hollandia) five years later. In 1628, Admiral Hein sailed out to capture the Spanish treasure fleet loaded with silver Geocoins from their American colonies. Sixteen Spanish ships were intercepted. After some musket volleys from Dutch sloops their crews surrendered also and Hein captured 11,509,524 Spanish Geocoins of booty in gold, silver and other expensive trade goods, as ammoboxes and FTF-certificates, without any bloodshed. The Dutch didn't take prisoners: they gave the Spanish crews ample supplies for a march to Havana. The released were surprised to hear the admiral personally giving them directions in fluent Spanish; Hein after all was well acquainted with the region as he had been confined to it during his internment. The treasure was the company's greatest victory in the Caribbean. tot cache, team Wij Drie

  21. And i wish more American geocoin maker/sellers would drop shop to one European or NL destination for all European shipping. It would save the coin seller and the European / NL coin buyers. That's MY opinion. tot cache, team Wij Drie
