2007 Delaware Geocoin

Recommended Posts

The Geocachers of Delaware Club has just concluded the Delaware C.A.C.H.E., the Cache Around the Colonial Hundreds Event, a geocaching challenge to complete a series of caches, one placed in each of the twenty-four "colonial" Hundreds of Delaware. Delaware is the only state that still uses the Hundreds division, a term that designated an area of land capable of sustaining about one hundred families.

 

To commemorate the event, each cacher who completed the challenge received an "award edition" of the 2007 coin, a 1.75mm two-tone nickel and antique silver coin for their efforts. The coin features a Delaware Minuteman with GPS, ammo can, and Brown Bess guarding the Delaware flag, while side two has the state map with the twenty-four hundreds highlighted along with the Blue Hen. The coin also has a animated minuteman icon for your collection.

 

An excellent antique gold version of this GC.com trackable coin is available for sale. The coins are in-stock and shipping now. The cost is $9 plus $2.50 shipping.

They are currently available online at:

 

2007 Delaware Coin

 

More detailed information about the Delaware challenge and the coin will be posted on the Delaware Geocaching website very shortly.

 

Currently you can only place US domestic orders online until we get the new international rates figured out, but international orders can be reserved by using the email link on the coin order page, and we'll reserve the coins for you and let you know what the shipping cost will be.

Thanks, everyone for the nice comments on our coin.

 

The event was a huge success- we gave away over a hundred prizes, ate lots of food, and everyone got to learn a little something about Delaware!

needing bumpage, you really do need to see this coin. The picture does NOT do it justice, it is one of the nicest coins produced as of late. It will be available at local events including Muddy Run 2007 and the Cache across Maryland events next weekend, so come on out and seeit in person!

There are still some of these 2007 coins available from the website, or if you are in the neighborhood you can get one at the Third Annual Delaware Fall Geo Event this weekend and save the shipping costs.

 

We also did a two-tone (nickel/antique silver) version of the coin that was our "prize coin" and the only way to get that one was to complete the challenge. We decided to make a VERY FEW of these available to collectors who were not able to participate in the challenge but still want a coin.

 

If you are interested, the auction for one of these Prize Edition coins is up now.

How many of the regular ones did you mint?

We only did 500 of the gold coins.

(corrected 10/2- 500, not 400)

We put up a couple more of the Prize and Collector Edition coins if anyone is interested.

Both the silver (Prize edition) and black (Collector's Edition) coins are extremely limited so they are being auctioned. Most of these have gone as prizes to Delaware geocachers.

There are three coins in the 2007 set.

 

Please note: For the Gold standard edition coins, if you are local and you are coming to one of the Delaware events, don't purchase the coin online. Just let me know and we'll bring one to the event to save you the shipping cost.
