Are there trackable coins (via GC.com) other than these?

 

Colorado Geocoin

GB Geocoin

Geowoodstock Coin

German Geocoin

Michigan Geocoin

Moun10Bike

USA Geocoin

 

Maryland is to be but not shipping (is that correct) ?

I believe (might be wrong) that U.K., Tennessee, Maryland, New Jersey, & Ohio are (will be) trackable on GC.com when they're released. Also the Geocoin Club coins are (will be) GC.com trackable.

Michigan Geocoin

This is the second time today I've seen a Michigan coin mentioned (the other was an Event where one is logged in).

 

Is this a MIGO coin or something else entirely that I somehow missed discussions about?

 

I can't keep up anymore. :)

I just purchase some MIGO coins that are trackable. www.mi-geocaching.org.

 

I proudly registered it today and got my icon. :)

MIGO = Michigan

It is my understanding that the Maryland coin will have an icon of the MD flag instead of the cent sign.

I've been told the MiGO (Michigan Geocaching Organization) coins are suppose to have their own individual icon also.

I am sure that Maxine&Me would be able to confirm that.

 

I guess I'll have to figure out what I forgot to do with mine

Nope, just the regular gold coin with the cent sign. ....for now. I contacted GC.com and they charge a flat fee of $150 to set that icon up. I can't imagie not doing it if you are going through the trouble and expense to make them trackable

 

These user stat pages are going to get busy ;)

When I posted the question in our (MiGO's) forums, about having a custom icon like Maryland, I was told that MiGO did pay the extra for the custom icon. So hopefully it will get straightened out and the icon will be different. (I, too, am an icon junkie. ;) )

Can someone explain to me how the MIGO coin tracking on geocaching.com works? I activated my coin on the www.mi-geocaching.org site and it is trackable only on travelertags.com.

 

Are we talking about a different coin?

Only the new MIGO coins are trackable at gc.com... the original ones are not, the only difference I see in the coins is the small "trackable at" verbiage around the coins serial #.

The coin I activated and received a seprate icon for is the one that is currently available for sale. The Geocoin club offers a free service for activating coins. This prevents the coin issuers from having to keep up with activation codes etc. If you go to this site and enter the number off of the coin they will email you an activation code.

 

You then go activate the coin like you would a travel bug. It works out great once you figure it out. My MIGO coins had an activation instruction sheet.

Check the TrackableCoins wiki. I enjoy the trackable coins and I had my own list, offline. I desided to share my list and discovered that a wiki would be the best way to this. Visitor can edit any page and add their pages. This keeps the pages in the wiki from going stale and allows everyone to share what they know.

That's pretty cool, but your GB coin listing is wrong. GB is GeoBash, not the UK coin. Here's a picture of one that you can add to the GB coin page.

The new ones say exactly what?

 

So who wants to trade a new MIGO geocaching.com-trackable coin for a pdxmarathonman coin :blink:

Its a wiki, go ahead and make any changes you want. The pages can be edited by anyone who logs in, you don't need my permission. The communal nature of a wiki is what keeps it fresh and relevant.

I don't know what wiwi stands for, but the page does seem to call itself a wiwi rather than a wiki :D

Sorry for the confusion. Wiwi is the name of the wiki software that I am using. Hmm, maybe I should change all references of wiwi to wiki to avoid future confusion.

They have their own unique coin icon too! Instead of the gold coin with a cent sign it is the center from the Maryland state flag. I'm to lazy, right now, to post a picture. Maybe later.

I added the information I could find on the New Jersey coin as well as the now-in-production Tennessee coin which will also be trackable on gc.com.

 

Speaking of the NJ coin... has anybody heard any RECENT news on that one??? The thread seems to have disappeared and the webpage is a bit outdated.

I see the Canadian ones are not on the list. I found one, logged it on the Canadian Geocoin site, but it doesn't appear to be trackable on geocaching.com... therefore no icon. Any one have any more info about Canadian ones? I was all excited when I found it, thinking I was about to get a new icon. Was I doing something wrong? Perhaps not?

The Canadian ones are tracked on a separate site that does not communicate with your stats page here -- so no icon. As far as I understand it, there are FOUR types of coins:

 

1) Trackable (Groundspeak), organizations/countries -- special icon possible, sometimes generic icon

2) Trackable (Groundspeak), individual, -- generic icon only

3) Trackable (non-Groundspeak) -- no connection to your stats here. Many different sites.

4) Non-trackable

 

There is the "special" exception of the Moun10Bike coin (a personal with special icon)

Also, some coins are now coming out with the ability to attach a traditional travel bug as well by having a "loop" at the top. Germany and my own Geobone for example.

The new EU coins are trackable at GC.com

Do the EU ones have a custom icon or the generic coin icon?

 

Just saw the answer -- yes it does.

Does anybody know how much of each type coin listed above were made? Just curious as to the rarity of the coins.

There were 600 of the GW3 Pewter coins made and 100 of the Bronse Volunteer version.

Ummm, OK. How much does it cost to make a your personal coin trackable on this site? :blink:

 

Never much got into the coin craze except to get new icons, BUT I would consider doing a Sn :D:o gans coin if it were trackable. :D:D:o

You can buy the codes from Groundspeak at $1.50 a code with a minimum of 500 codes. Your design must be approved by Groundspeak (this is easy).

Look for a coin from me in a few months! (to a year or more.... Let's face it I'm lazy. I have over 100 caches unlogged and 6 hides.)

 

Hmmmmm,
