Creation of 1st Geocoin - Mail Jeep Geocoin

Recommended Posts

I haven't done a coin yet but have had tons of intersting ideas go through my head. Here is one i thought might be something intersting. Headlights would be glow in the dark. Hope this is a good start. I just drew it up tonight. Let me know what you think. Is it worth designing? Any suggestions?

Very cool! To me it kinda represents what I wait to see everyday in the hopes that it will bring me more coins to appease my obsession. But yeah I think you should make the coin. I'd buy one.

I thought for certain someone was going to use "Wait a Minute, Mr. Postman" in my Recording Artist's series, but no one did.

 

I think it's a great idea, and a Cool Jeep too!

We had a Jeep driving Postman when I was a teenager. He even had his Steering wheel on the opposite side, even though it was in the USA.

 

Love your idea! Get 'er done! :laughing:

Let's get crazy :laughing::laughing::laughing: , have the door slide and show a geocoin or post man with a bubble mailer. You could incorporate the slider in the colored lines so you would see it from the front at all.

Those would be cool and would have to have some. Might even have to order one for my mail lady. I always get excited when she drives up to the house as opposed to just using the mailbox!!

It's a Jeep (love 'em) and incoporates our favorite break of the day - hitting the mailbox. 'Course where we live now haven't seen that Jeep but we hold out hope the town will actually consider us worthy of a red, white & blue vehicle one day.

 

Definitely in for some! Great idea!

Alright I had a thought that I better add before someone else takes the idea. What if a Mail Box coin was minted to go along with the truck?

 

Any thoughts? If you think this would be a good idea I would be happy to work directly with the OP if they are OK with the idea.

 

I am not trying to take away from the OP but thought it would be fun to have them done together. If the OP is not interested in trying to get these done together I would be more than happy to persue the Mail Box on my own.

 

Input please.

Wow I posted this before i went to bed last night. I didnt expect it to get this many replies in such a short time. I think I will have this coin made then, since it sounds like it will do well. Anymore feedback would be great!

I've seen artwork for one from another cacher.

I was thinking about the whole mailbox idea too....I want to get my first coin out of the way first and make sure it is done perfect before I do anything else. If this one does good I have a few other "interesting" designs that I might float out there also. Hopefully I can get this coin going shortly.

Last thing I think.....I was thinking of just using a mini version of the mail jeep itself for the icon which should look pretty cool!

Great idea, just wanted to point out one little thing, the obverse side should be for lack of better description, opposite of the front. Flip the jeep then add the words, do you see what I mean?

good point...i put it together last night. I will finish it probably tonight exactly how it will be but what I posted was my 90% complete thought.

 

Thanks,

Love this whole idea, but there is one potential problem. The USPS eagle emblem is a copyrighted logo, so you had best not include it, or anything even remotely like it, on the coin. There is something that looks a lot like that logo on the fender of the jeep, on the obverse. Don't think that this is a minor issue; the USPS is very protective of its priorities.

 

BTW: We're in for a few :laughing:

This is getting out of freaking control. What will be next. IS THERE NO END? The coins could have been fun until people abused it by putting whatever on the coins so they can make a quick buck. Oh well just what I think.

So the mail carriers who bring us the coins have no connection with geocoins at all?

Not sure, but it must have been the method of shipping for the Wyoming coins :( !

Ok tweaked the artwork a little. got rid of the one logo for another on the fender, moved the trackable at geocaching.com, flipped the coins correctly and had to lose a few things that probably wouldnt make it into production. Whatya think?

I think that the R with the circle around it next to the Geocaching.com logo is gonna be pretty small! It looks awesome!

I was looking at the posts for this new coin and wanted to say that I think the design is really awesome! I know I would definitely be interested in a couple of them.

flipped coins still have the mirrors sticking up...but otherwise great work!

 

I hate when I overlook something like that. It's fixed! :rolleyes:

Common guys, not another coin I have to have! :rolleyes: I made a New Years Resolution, NOT to buy every coin that is minted! I can't keep up with the ones I already have. :wub: Gotta get this one though! I'd kick myself from here to CA (coinfest) if I didn't put in for at least 2 of these.

 

By the way, around here our mail is delivered by snail. (Maybe that could be your next coin.) You'd think we lived in the middle of the north pole. :wub: Actually, we had a wonderful carrier, but they took us off a permanent route & we've had problems ever since.

 

Put me down for 2. I love it!

B) Oh yeah, these coins would be SOOO appropriate. Put me down for a couple. Yes, I do believe I too might give one to my postal carrier. I think I make her day, sometimes! One thought, would you need permission from them to do this coin??? :ph34r:
