Unique Icon

 

1.75” diameter

 

Soft enamel on front with an antique finish on reverse.

I bought four of these and love them. I will be going to Beijing in May and can't wait to take them with me.

I'm going to have to order some of these. On a weird note, I was at the Observatory again just yesterday. It is well worth the visit, imho. Too bad nobody ever did a cache there.

I just acquired an unactivated Beijing coin. I tried the links you posted above, but, none work. Could the original coin creators be gone, website defunct, coin activation no longer in existence?? I would be very sad if that's the case...

Hi Erik,

 

Between the time I posted and your reply I stumbled upon another website that had access codes for the Beijing coins. Got it all activated. But thanks very much! Wonderful coin, and fits well into my astronomy series of geocoins.
