A few days away from the forum and a lot of coins I don't know about appear in different posts. First, where is that cuckoo clock comes from? Second, where did you get that really cute dog? :rolleyes:

 

the "frog clock geocoin (time to cache) and the easter bunny geocoin both came from geocoinshop.de...the wooden dog geocoin is an e-bay only special

Thanks drneal for the info! I would have prefer the copper clock but that one is sold out :( I will get a bunny instead, it's so cute :D

I received four coins this week to add to my collection.

 

The first three are from this year's Gemeenterace in the Netherlands.

The last coin has taken me a long time to track down. It is probably one of the most sought after coins in Europe and has eluded me for a very long time. I have bothered, bribed, begged, and badgered nearly every cacher and coin collector I know in Holland to try and help me track this beauty down!

 

Finally, with a lot of help from good friends, I now have this coin for my very own! Thank you everybody! You know who you are!

It is a pity that nobody around here will know the significance of this coin when I display it at events.

I'm not sure what you mean, but I think I know some of the story. First I'd like to congratulate you with this coin. I'm really jealous now :wub: . I know the owner of "Het Gele Bussie", Barny, and see him every now and them on events. This man is an icon in the Dutch caching community; many love him, some don't, but almost everybody knows him one way or another.

I hope I can find one of these too for my collection B)

I really just mean that nobody here will know how hard it is to get one of these. :D

Nice bonus with the GS C&P Club set- the 'Turtle-kinz' tag. But newer collectors be aware that the tag is a DUPLICATE/PROXY for the coin= send the bonus out traveling and you're activating the coin. Just noting in case you like to keep your coins unactivated for trades etc.

First thing I thought was "Wow, they threw in a tag this month!" Glad I looked closer and noticed it was marked as a dupe, or I coulda ended up a dope!

Sivota really has been busy! Last week I received a beautiful coin and card from her. It's the Nidaros cathedral coin - one if the few coins produced in my own country, and one that fits very well into my collection of cathedral coins. Thank you so much, Sivota!
