Bc Geocoin

Recommended Posts

<_< The BCGA hard at work on the geocoin :ph34r:

That looks about right. Based on the interest, they'll need a lot of ore. Do you happen to know where they'll be doing the smelting?

I'd take 5, and maybe more, but i skimmed over the thread and couldn't see a proposed price. Could someone post, or contact me via GC to let me know?

 

BC Tripper :P

Add me to the list, I will take 4 or 5 when ready.

 

I have an extra hammer if yours breaks while stamping them out

Cost would likely be in the same range as other similar coins recently issued -- around $7.00 CDN or $5.00 US plus shipping.

The very first post ;)

There was some pics in the former bcga forum, but they were just ideas.

ideas: bc coat of arms - bc with maker (like can coin) - totems - mountains - orcas - native art

This is bordering on absurd. 3-4 days on design, send it out for a few quotes, coins in hand 3-6 weeks.

 

What seems to be the problem here?

Do it soon, or someone else will.

As the OP of this thread, I will respond --

 

I was asked, as a member of the BCGA executive, to post this topic as a way to gauge interest in minting of a BC geocoin. I did not volunteer to oversee the development and production of these coins, nor do I have any interest in doing so.

 

Obviously, there is a lot of interest in this coin, and several months have gone by since my original post. Perhaps the BCGA president would like to post a note here to fill us all in on the current status of the coin so I can either lock the thread or leave it open.

 

Please do not send me any more emails directly inquiring about the coin -- I don't know any more than you do.

 

H-C

The BCGA has neither the resources nor interest in continuing to pursue a BC geocoin at this time, despite overwhelming feedback that there is a demand for it. We encourage other BC geocachers to organize creating a coin and wish them success with the endeavour.

 

Please feel free to lock this thread at your earliest convenience.

Jeesh if I had no ethics, I'd slap something together and have something for y'all in a few weeks.

You could have relayed that information a lot earlier, could you have not? And maybe locked the thread?

 

And when you say the "BCGA has no interest", do you mean the BCGA executive? Or was the membership (such that it is) polled on the question?

Don't worry. If you lived here, you'd have known that the BCGA is a waste of time.

Are you doing a BC geocoin too ... or will this be The Sandbox geocoin? I'd like to see how the artwork on the Sandbox coin goes over in these here parts. ;)
