i also recently acquired one of my hearts desires.

a flower of life in gold. it was at the very top of my list. i am so excited about it.

 

i have also gotten an earth turtle, an american caching, and beach cachtoid since making the original list.

Wow a Flower of Life. I just saw one (pic only) for the first time a week or so ago. It's beautiful. Congrats UFgatorgirl!

In no particular order:

Any of the micro flowers. I have the Hawaii, and a Kansas Sunshine (2006 I think). These little flowers always bring a smile to my face when I find them in a cache.

Delicious Cache fish

Forest Cache frog

Rainforest Jewel (any)

Erik88L-R. He was the reviewer of my Iraq caches.

The Wishing Coin. I remember when people first started finding these, I turned my garden pond into a Wishing pond, but couldn't entice The Wishing Coin to visit. Like Linus' pumpkin patch, it must not have been sincere enough! :mellow:

I'll second that emotion. Please keep the lists of "top 5" coming! If I might brag a little bit, I am very close to receiving two of my top 5: one through a gift and one through a trade. I would very much like to "pay it forward" whenever possible, so I am monitoring this in hopes of satisfying someone's want!

What are the 2 you're hoping for? Let's see after you receive.......

there is a thread for the wishing coin. it has orange goldfish on it like the wishing coins avatar.

 

it looks like a neat coin. all mystery coins are neat because of the generous people who give them out.

 

good luck, nefesh..patience.....a mystery coin will come one day.

 

There's that word again.................patience :blink:

 

Send me your address :blink:

Birders have "life lists" of birds they want to sight before they die.

I have a "life list" too, of geocoins I want to hold in my hand or add to my collection before I die.

 

It's a pretty short list.

 

1) Colonel H. George Cachington Dragon Geocoin

2) Alaska 2006 (Wolf) Gold Leaf

3) Great Outdoors XLE

 

But it's not an easy list to cross off.

Each of those coins have a tremendous significance, but they are almost impossible to find as it is unless an owner suddenly decides to liquidate... and I have a gut feeling I will miss the sale if it does go on.

 

Notwithstanding, the rest of the top 5 list would be:

4) Dragon geocoins, currently specifically a Dressel Dragon

5) Astro Winter

Here is my list. Granted I am just getting started in this collecting addiction so I don't have any coins to trade yet, but... when budget allows I will try to pick some up for trading. It has been easier to buy directly from the coin vendor or from ebay so far, but I hate getting into bidding wars. I have bid on the brahean several times but have lost out every time

 

1. Any edition of the BRAHEAN geocoin

2. Unity Dragon (2008)

3. Scavok's Celtic Tree of Life

4. Time and Space Geocoin

5. ????

New Zealand Fern/Kiwi

Mine are the older coins...that I figure I don't have a shot at getting, but they are on my list anyway! :rolleyes: In no particular order....

 

1. Yemon Yime (ver 1)

2. Lemon Fresh Bone (ver 1)

3. The BIG ammo can from the GCC club (one of the early coins)

4. Joe Frog's first

 

This was my orginal list...of course the first thread said ASIDE FROM THE MYSTERY COINS...so that's why I didn't list those...so still ASIDE from the mystery coins I'd have to add

 

5. Bad Andy's coin

 

This one was on Ebay, but it went over $100...and there's no way that I would pay that for a coin...no matter how much I want it! :anicute:

 

I've been really lucky and gotten some great coins (including some mystery ones). I don't collect every coin anymore, but I love the ones that I have!

As promised, I am posting the TWO coins from my "top 5" list that I have been very fortunate to acquire through this thread! The Night Hunter 2008 came with the pathtag as a GIFT from a generous participant in the forums: thank you! The Belted Kingfisher came through a trade: thank you!

 

The Tatanka Pejula is also a gift from another participant in the forums, but in response to my "open apology" post from a month or so ago. There are some truly fantastic people who visit these forums, and they have all set the example to which I aspire and continue the traditions of good trading and gifting.

 

Thank you again - you all know who you are!

Micro Musketeer Set (yeah, it's 4 coins but I can't pick a favorite!)

Dutch LE ('05, '07 or '08) Yes! I got myself an '06!!!

Twin Peaks XLE black nickel

Typically I just read this thread and see what coins everyone thinks are the tops and I enjoy the diversity of opinion and sometimes when a reason behind the rating is given I really even enjoy the reading these as well.

As usually this is to remember a Friend, Event, or a Special Time that a coin was first seen discovered etc…..

 

I also like the stories of coins showing up in mail boxes for no reason other than to make someone’s want come true.

I was very fortunate this year to be part of “Support the Geocaching Troops” mission, and let our Troops know we are behind them and that we have not forgotten them. I had so many different and wonderful coins pass through our hands, my kids Fredhead, and Queenie-Boo-Bay, and my own I would not know where to start to make a Top 5 list.

 

Here is my Top X list and the reasons behind each:

 

"Lady Luck" Geocoin - Wanna get lucky? Blonde, Brunette, Redhead, Black Hair it does not matter:

The reason I love this coin is my Dad, who passed last year, please see his TB In Memory of "Junie" TB27G7T

He was a fan of Plane Nose Art, and I guess this is where I grew to love those Pinup Girls so……..

 

STONEHENGE Geocoin, Ultimate Mystery:

I have friends in the UK, and one in particular while there we were to head to see the site, trip was cut short and so was the chance to ever get back to do the trip with my friend again.

 

Isle of Man Series 1 and 2:

I was able many years ago to head to the Isle of Man TT Race with the friend mentioned above, and see the races, what a time an experience I shall never forget. This is trip is the reason why my Personal Dipping Coin is an Isle of Man II Geocoin

 

Anthus Decoder V1.0 & Anthus Decoder V1.5:

These ones I like because it is part of the Anthus Series and an Anthus Coin was the first we found when we started Geocaching we did not even know to log it, since then we have been able to get our hands on a Anthus Secret GeoAgent

 

Delorme Eartha:

What can I say, this is just the representation of our sport, and have you seen this coin……

 

Yemon Yime:

Citrus Ridiculus, this coin came to me for the “Support the Geocaching Troops” mission, this was the hardest coin to repack and send as this coin just says get one for your collection. Someday I will trade for this one and add it in.

 

The Wishing Coin:

I never knew about his coin until I read about it here in this thread, but this coin is everything a Mystery Coin-gifter could ever hope to create, it is beautiful, the Coy Fish, the Ying-Tang symbology, and the message it is just great.

 

Todies Wild Ride:

These just speak volumes for Rockin Roddy

 

With the new coins hitting now Fear No Cache, River Cacher’s Fire Truck Geocoin. Theotokos Dragon Ladon what will we want for next?

 

I just want to say thanks for the diversion(s) and it is great to be part of such a community.

There are so many nice coins available, many of which I do not even know the names for. Some which I can recall, but not in any particular order are:

 

Belken personal coin

Sydney eternity geocoin

Compass rose geocoins

Suncatcher geocoins

Nude caching geocoin

 

While the tengwar coins, delf blue and others are also beautiful, the coins I have available to trade are just not in their league :(

 

I seem to remember seeing a link somewhere to a site which has pictures of most coins available, but now do not know where to find it. I think it also had trading lists for various teams. Can someone point me in the right direction?
