I poked around on the web and called a bunch of places. I settled on: www.qualitylapelpins.com

Since they had what I was looking for with a decent price in mind.

Contact Groundspeak (Bryan), pay an amount and you can get the coins to be trackable on Geocaching.com

or you can use the services offered on some of the other threads for free! ;);)

Through another cacher that inquired, I learned that GC.com tracking is only available to cacher groups/associations with a minimum of 1000 (?) coins are produced.

"Geocoin" is a generic term that relates to all geocaching-related coins, whether they're trackable on geocaching.com or not.

To be trackable, each coin must have a unique identification code, either numeric, alpha, or alphanumeric. It also must have someone, somewhere, keeping track of who has what coin. It could simply be emailing a person who keeps a spreadsheet, but more often it's some site that finders can log into and post using the coin's number. Travelertags.com will do it. So will cointracking.com once it is up and running.

 

Problem is, you generally need to know how you're going to track them before you have them minted, so that the mechanism for tracking can be printed on the coin itself.

 

My personal coins are numbered, by me by hand, but are not trackable.

In the upper right corner there should be a link that says 'search'. Change the default search date, and put in 'free tracking' or something like that and start the search.

 

hope that helps
