Sending Your Coins To Britain.

Recommended Posts

If any of our American friends would like to send their geocoins across the 'pond' to us to follow them around England then we would be most happy to plant them in caches near us. E Mail me through the website if interested. :P

If you send me a mailing address, I will send an activated f0t0m0m coin (trackable on geocaching.com) to each of the 3 of you. With the agreement that these are to be placed in a cache.

I will offer a TN coin (unactiviated) to the individual that can take my personal TN coin to Windsor Palace, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and have pictures taken with one of the Queen's guards.

It is with many thanks to F0t0m0m, (thanks K&J) that we started this topic. We have just sent them our TB to travel America so we thought it would be good to return the favour to anyone who wants something to come to the UK. Also we are going to London at the end off the month so email sent to Ladebare68!

If you are across the seas email me an address so I can mail you a coin with a TB on it. The kids have been tracking their own TBs dropped in caches in the US and I think this would be great to start a bunch across the seas!

In Germany coins are also very rare..... :rolleyes:

Keep an eye for this one then. European Vacation Coin. I was stationed in Ludwigsnurg on Flak Kaserne from 89-91, and its goal is to make it there and have some pics of what it looks like now. If you make this happen, I will mail you a special gift in the form of a 2005 trackable coin (unactivated of course) from Pennsylvania.

I have a California Geocoin that I am going to attach to a Travel Bug tag. It will be logged as a TB and can also be logged on the Calif Geocoin site. Reading this topic is giving me the idea to send it somewhere. Anyone in Europe want to take it and move it?

 

Also, please tell me if I need to mark the envelope as to contents when sending to your country.

When I sent coins to Germany and the UK, I had to fill out a customs form.

Thats not unusual. they want to know what your sending and how/if tax should be applied.

I just sent a yellow jeep TB to the UK. When they had me fill out the customes form I used 0.00 for the value, checked other and called it "On Loan" which for a TB is true enough.

 

Coins though have me wondering.

The only good thing that came of me putting coins on the customs form was that the clerk at the Post Office showed me a roll of pennies that someone had turned in. The roll was full of wheat pennies and steel wheat pennies.

When sending out one or two coins, if the coins were shown to the employee at the postal or customs counter before sealing the envelope, wouldn't that be a way of letting them know it is just some kind of token and not an object of high value such as a collectible money coin?

 

That way, it would probably be marked off as a token, not a coin. I would try it that way.

Definately mark it as a token, or game token. As for the value, customs shows that most items under $300 total do not incur customs fees or duties when crossing borders. I don't think sending a few coins and showing $10 value is gonna be any big deal.

I was marking them as "Novelty Token"... but the man at the Post Office said that if it's under 1 pound I don't need the customs form... so I've stopped doing the customs forms...

Yep, I've sent a bunch of stuff and have never been required to fill one out. It probably helps being small town the the Post Master knows everyone.

This sounds like a lot of fun, expanding where stuff can be shared and sent. I also would like to send TB with coin, how is the best way to do it?

 

I mean attach the TB to the coin, or just register and send the coin.

 

Then maybe have pictures taken with it in different spots as it moves about.
