+JWID Posted September 6, 2006 Share Posted September 6, 2006 Hi Everybody. We wanted to make sure you all heard it here first. A few weeks ago we finalized the details of a new Southern Ontario Cachers geocoin. After the details had been finalized, we were all struck with the sad news of the passing of 1701eh. We were all shocked, and saddened by the situation. After the shock wore off, we contacted the company we were using to create the new coins to see if we could reconfigure the minting/selling to create a bit of a fundraiser for Tony's family. We are pleased to say that TheCachingPlace.com was very helpful in this manner, and agreed to donate $1.50 from each coin sold to the family! Coins will go on sale on Thursday evening, we will post the website for the sale shortly. These coins are being distributed by an American company (best pricing), but were designed by a native Southern Ontario cacher. Here's a sneak peak at the design ... 500 will be minted in an Antique silver. The geese are 3D engraved, the crest is 2D and colour filled. Thanks. JWID Quote Link to comment
