Coinfusion Project 2006

15 posts in this topic

I am now the proud owner of 2 gold colored coinfusion coins. So what's the story behind them? How many of each was made? Etc.?

This was a project that originally was going to be a "coins in caches" only project, inspired by the Santa Mystery coin. All of the cachers mentioned on the coin were involved in the project, including random distribution, trades, gifts, etc. I think there were about 7 different metals minted, but I don't know the exact minting of each one. Indy Diver's are the only ones that say "Indy Diver" on the coin edge (in addition to the other edge text). These were meant to be a fun coin to find in caches, and their minting isn't really limited (although it does say 2006 on the coin, so probably no more will be minted beyond the end of the year). They were never meant to be sold.

There is some information about the coin on cointracking.com but not sure it tells the number made.

Cool...trying to figure out what I have. Does not have Indy DIver on edge, they look like polished gold but I only see bronze without Indy Diver? Still cool though :)

I'm guessing they are the unplated brass, which look very much like gold.

Here is my full set of Coinfusion Project coins I recieved from M10B. The scan on the upper left, Side one looks very dark but is actually the silver coin. On the edge of each coin it states "Property of the Coinfusion Project Not to be Sold". L to R Top Row-Silver, Black Nickel, Antique Gold. Bottom Row-Antique Copper, Copper, Gold.

 

Please understand these are what I am calling them. I noted in CoinTracking.com there were variations to the naming, hence the confusion about 7 or 8 different metals.

 

I also seem to remember when I opened the package there was a slip of paper saying something like "Coinfusion Project Face to Face trades only" or some such. I cannot locate the note but it rings pretty clear in my mind but then again my mind isn't what it used to be and I was pretty freaked out at the time because the coin package from M10B and the reviewers was huge and had some incredible coins in it. (Like a M10B v1 and v3, Moun10tyke, GS Volunteer, (From eartha Thank-you very much) etc.)

Only Indy Diver posted cointracking editions (which pretty much let the secret out of the bag) :lol:

There were other metals minted that Indy Diver didn't order, so those don't have coin editions.

 

Top left is shiney nickel. The top right is unplated bronze. The bottom, left is Antique Gold. Bottom right is foggy gold.

 

No gold were minted, except 1 sample. There is also 1 sample of antique bronze.

Silver was never minted.

 

Also minted (in smaller quantities):

Shiney Copper

Satin Nickel (only 10 minted? I don't think I have this one.)

Antique Silver

 

If you count the "Indy Diver" edge text coins as a different version (they were minted seperately, so I guess you could), I think there are a total of 13 versions. :P

 

Here are the minting numbers to the best of my knowledge.

 

First minting numbers:

 

Bronze without plating - 340

Antique Gold - 20

Black Nickel - 50

Foggy Gold - 55

Antique Copper - 45

Shiney Nickel - 20

 

Second minting:

 

Bronze without plating - 150 (100 with Indy Diver edge text)

Black Nickel - 75 ( 50 with Indy Diver edge text)

Antique Copper - 85 ( 50 with Indy Diver edge text)

Antique Silver - 60 ( 50 with Indy Diver edge text)

Antique Gold - 25

Foggy Gold - 10

Shiney Nickel - 35

Satin Nickel - 10

Shiney Copper - 10

 

Are you coinfused yet?

Found mine in a cache a couple months back. Inquired to Team Fisur and got strange " We don't discuss CoinFusion" reply. So, I emailed Moun10bike. He explained it was a joint project by the original geocoin creators to put out a coin. Simple enough I guess.

The first rule of the Coinfusion Project is no one talks about the Coinfusion Project.

Well, I wonder if part of the Coinfusion is to not ever be straight about what metals were minted. Mine is certainly Shiny, and certainly Gold, and certainly Plated(I know because much of it is peeling off, making mine ONE OF A KIND!!). I don't have a clue where I found it, but it was way before I started collecting Coins. I was picking through my collection of Sigitems, and pulled this one out to place in my new Coin collection. I probably found it over a year ago. Thank You to the creators of this great Coin!!
