I love the Eartha 3-D coins. How did you get a hold of one?

 

I haven't received many bubble mailers recently--no money to buy anything :rolleyes: But today makes up for all those empty mailbox days don't you think! :)

It was a trade set up at the Midwest Geobash and very much worth waiting for. It is an awesome coin in hand.

Glad to hear that worked out as planned!!

Today, I recieved a very special gift from a very special cacher.

I activated it... MAMA'S PRETTY IN PINK YIME.

It was in a pink pouch and also the Pink Yemon Yime PIN.

I don't collect pins, and there are alot of folks that didn't get one,so I will be auctioning off the pin with 100% of the sale going to Susan G. Komen Foundation.

 

Also, Yime has agreed and has in the works a second minting of these beautiful Geocoins, so that everyone will be able to get one and support the cause. Watch his thread for updates!!!

These are some really fine looking coins, but I am afraid that the front side has inlaid photographs. The problem with that is that photographs will most likely fade over time. In 100 years, they will probably be yellow and barely recognizable.

 

I figure in 100 years I'll probably also have yellowed, and will be barely recognizable :D .

The picture shows some of the coins I have made.

the coin looks a little pale because it had such a long trip to the U.S. Thanks for the opportunity to own such a great coin!

I have had a great week, Monday I got 2 Pink Yimes and a Mystery Loonatick. Then I took DrNeal's advice and decided to make my hearts desire come true ;), and after some dedicated Ebay searching I found it! Not 1 but 2 Halloween compass roses, a silver finish and a gold finish. I love them :lol:

 

the evil has begun...welcome to the dark side :P !

Trust me that's what it feels like :D , When you take extra call so you can buy more coins and get excited to get called back so that you will have a chance to get that cache that is ALWAYS surrounded by muggles, you are addicted and have gone to the dark side!! :anicute::anitongue:

it is not often i am rendered speechless, but yesterday's mailbox treasures did it. the splendid minnesota geocaching association 2010 coin was in the mailbox PLUS the awesome 2007 earth turtle! wow, talk about a generous sender. and i have no idea who to thank so this little message will have to do to express my deepest thanks for such unexpected treasures. i instantly activated the minnesota coin but had trouble with the activation code for the earth turtle.

 

anyone know where i can find that? there was a piece of paper included with the turtle that looked to have a code on it, but no permutation of numbers/letters did the trick. the zero was a zero and not an O. etc.

 

thank you again to minnesota! these will be treasured forever.

These coins are currently on sale for $5.00 at The Geocoin Store, so I bought two. I will not be releasing these into the wild, but this could be a good coin for that purpose. It is currently cheap and without enamel or a shiny plating, it may be less likely to be stolen. On the other hand, I think it is a very cool design, so some people might be tempted to walk off with it.

greg, you may want to consider making your pics a little smaller, they really are HUGE!

I could make them smaller, but then the details of the coins would not come through. On my monitor, the pictures look fine and could even be a bit larger. I guess that it is a matter of what types of monitors people have and their settings.

 

If enough people complain, I will make them smaller, but for now I will leave them and keep the resolution.

 

I apologize and will think more about your complaint.

One more thing. I am not sure that this works with all browsers, but if you hold down control and turn the scroll wheel on your mouse, it should instantly change the size of everything on your screen. You can instantly make big pictures small.

It is more a question of file size than resolution. People with dialup would find it tediously slow to download the image. Try to keep it under 100k. There is a separate thread for hi-res photos.

that trick doesn't work on a mac, but really, my hi-res screen is small enough already. not a complaint, btw, just a suggestion.
