First ufficial italian geocoin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

the Kingfisherteam in co-operation with some other Italian Geocacher (cmauri, kazuma, i5fzi, GENicogiorgi, kdv, leo99, ilBoss, Itamagellano01, Vericol, bluemarlin, barafondateam, LadiniaGeocachingTeam and kirkadore) has sketched the first off. ital. Geocoin .

 

Before we work on the last refinement, we would like to know, how many persons would be interested in this country-coin at all, thus we have to order the edition (approx. 500-1000 Coins).

 

The Coin becomes 38mm/3mm , front 3D, back 5-colour and 4 metal refinements(with 500pc.: 75 gold antique, 125 nickel antique, 50 twotone, 250 nickel).

On the back you can see Italy in the national colors, on the front Galileo Galilei is represented in the globe (3D).

There are also own symbol and Prefix.

 

With interest please E-Mail us (or replyhere in the forum), then you are personally informed and have a “purchase option” . We estimate that the 50 (or 100 with 1000 Coins) TwoTone are fast sold…

 

Love of greetings, Kingfisherteam

 

PS: you can find some ideas to the Coin (without final version) under http://s109.photobucket.com/albums/n47/geocoinitalia/

Nice. I like the simplicity of the first (top) design posted here.

Do you know the price with shipping, yet? Depending on price and shipping, I would like one of each metal.

We'd be interested in one once the price is announced....

 

May we respectfully suggest, for deep 3D relief of Galileo you may want to consider 3.5mm thickness (or even 4.0mm).

 

Our preferred images are the top two if you're still deciding <_<

I like the top design, and I'd buy one depending on price. Please keep it under $10 US ($8 US would be great).

Will the final have " Trackable at Geocaching.com" on the coin?

Good point. One would assume so, else this thread isn't "legal", I don't think :laughing:

 

In any case, we fell in love with Italy in the Fall of 2005 (our first trip overseas), and have been thinking about our return trip since we came home. We would love to get one of each metal. Very nice design :D E-mail sent.

 

If we might offer a proposal for the future: how about a series of coins featuring some of the cities of Italia? Venezia, Milano, Palermo, etc... A unified theme on one side, and a "typical" scene (gondola on a canal, or St, Mark's Square, for example, for Venice) for each city. Having cached in Milano and Venezia, I know that there is a link to caching in this.
