I've followed the threads with interest being a newbie

 

Do you have an idea of the final cost?

 

Discount for cash :o?

Cheeky young tike!

 

The final cost is UK£4 per coin with a small discount for quantity. The cost has been kept to the absolute minimum as we are not doing this for profit. A small amount of extra has been added on to go towards server costs and any new dies for new designs. If we never get that far the 'profit' will be donated to charidee.

 

All this info and more can be found at UK Geocoins

Does anyone else think it is ironic that the UK Geocoin is more popular with our foreign friends than with the UK population (by volume anyway)? Fair play I say, it's great that there is such a healthy interest in the coins. I can't wait to get mine :anicute:

Sorry for the negativity, but i lost interest as soon as i realised that they would not be on geocaching.com.

I don't want to go flicking between pages to track them, i would happiliy have paid the extra for that facility.

Good luck with them though.

We are not asking for payment until we have the coins from the mint and they are ready to ship.

 

At the moment we are probably looking at PayPal payments - more details soon.

 

Thanks

I can't remember whether or not I've mailed to confirm my 3 coins, and can't find out due to a system crash and lost email.

 

So in case I haven't confirmed, I am still interested in three coins.

 

Cheers,

 

Adrian

Don't worry Fruity. I'll get some cash off you when I come round to log the German geocoin that's outside your house, and then pay for your coins with my paypal accound.

 

BTW - Happy Birthday Fruity. :(:laughing::laughing:

Greeting from Idaho <_< Sorry to make more work for you but could you bump up my order from 6 coins to 11 coins? Thanks so much....Keep up the great work...they are going to be awesome coins :rolleyes:

We have had a huge response as you can see from the website. The next stage is to set up a PayPal order website to get a few pounds rolling in to help with the deposit on the order with the mint. Hopefully I will manage that this weekend. More news soon including unveiling of the new web design.

Any idea about the E.T.A. of the coins?

 

Obviously we'll need to pay for them first, but I'm organising a cache bash in Sept and was hoping to get some for raffle prizes.

 

No pressure though :P

Sorry guys - the pre-order book is closed. You will now be put down on a first-come-first-served waiting list.

sorta

but I think thats the case for most group's coins, most don't stay in 'their' area. You'll likely also notice that the majority of coins are sold in small 1-5 coin lots, and the few big blocks go to also go to collectors, its just its a club/assiocations making a group buy.

Just a thought...as these aren't going to be trackable on geocaching.com, would it be feasible to set up a UKgeocoins tracking system like the California geocoins?

I believe that is part of the original spec. We should also get a bit of code like the canadian geocoins to add to our cache pages.

Any progress reports available ? where's the meeting going to be etc

Krew just sent an email to "needscoins" requesting to be added to the waiting list for one UK Geocoin if any are available.

 

Thanks,

 

Fish on!

Sorry for the delay - holidays, work and life are truly getting in the way plus with folks paying for EU coins I thought some may appreciate the wait.

 

Once I have got back on my feet from my holiday I will finish the website and put in the call for PayPal payments.

OK folks. Since we began this journey in December 2004 a lot of things have changed including an explosion in interest in Geocoins, the emergence of many new coins which overtook the UK coin and GC.com's about turn on tracking non-Groundspeak coins.

 

Due to their expertise and their experience with EU coin, the UK Geocoin team have made an agreement with gcCOINS.com to produce and distribute the UK coin. The greatest benefit of this is a speedier delivery AND GeoCaching.com tracking for the UK coin!

 

So if you are already down on the order list - stand by your inbox for an email from gcCOINS.com very soon. Make sure you reply quickly to ensure you do not miss this great coin for delivery before Christmas!

 

If you missed out on the order deadline then we are still adding people to the waiting list. People on the wait list will be supplied on a first come, first served basis out of the excess from the order list. If you are not already on the wait list then send an email to ineedcoins@gccoins.com including your Geocaching handle, country of residence and no. of coins required.

Just a reminder that Monday midnight is the deadline for paying for UK geocins before I throw the wait list open.

 

I know that it is past midnight already, but it is still yesterday over there on the other side of the Atlantic, so midnight PST will do.
