2007 Indiana Geocoin

Recommended Posts

For the resident coin, theres two options to pick from. I certainly prefer the first.

Regular Gold

Gold with Nickel

For the trackable, I have 3 options. Again, I prefer the first one, but opinions are welcome.

 

Regular Nickel

Nickel with Gold

Antique Silver

I also had them make a copper. It really looks great, and could be substituted for either coin. It depends on if we want to stick with the traditional colors or not.

I will leave this open to discussion for a couple days and then begin the preorders. Preorders will last through September 30th, 2007.

 

I'll have the sample coins at:

Eat and Greet (Aug. 4)

NEI-GEO Event (Aug. 11)

Caching at Thirteen Five (Aug 12)

Plainfield Meet and Greet (Aug 25)

Hands over the Water (Aug 31)

Fall Picnic (Sep 7&8th)

The reverse (flag) side appears to be the same photo in each view?

 

PS I tried to reply to the thread on indiangeocaching but as usual, it won't let me post there and keeps logging me out every time I change pages. I think I give up trying to post there, it's just too frustrating.

That would be because it is the same on each coin. I didn't feel a need to take all of those pictures.

 

I am about tired of IndianaGeocachings problems as well. I'm allmost ready to just shut it down and forget about it.

I didn't realize that others were having trouble with indianageocaching forums--I thought it was just me!

 

Are you saying the back side of the coin is gold on every coin--even the rim? How does that work--gold painted onto the edge?

 

I really like the first coin, too, in the non-trackable. If the silver trackable one has a silver rim on the back side, I think I like that one too, from the pictures.

I've been having the same loggin problems for months now. I just thought it was my computer.

 

I like the first coin. I have to say, I'm not too crazy about the copper...but that's just me.

We were never really planning on using the copper anyway.

 

Yes, the edges of the coin are all gold. I'm not sure how they made the nickel ones have a nickel rim on the front side, but they did it. They really look sharp that way.

Those options look good to me.

Feel free to continue discussing the design. All other discussion should be moved to the new thread I am starting in the Geocoin forum or to the thread at indianageocaching.com.

"Sometime in October" is rapidly drawing to a close (Happy Holloween!)

Any update on when to expect delivery?

Not a clue. I paid for them at the start of the month.

 

I'll send oak an email and ask for a status update.

So, what did they say?

The trackable coins arrived friday, the residents arrived today. All of the orders are packed and ready to ship, I am going to take them in to the post office tomorrow but i'm not sure how many they can handle at once. I may or may not need to space out the shipping over a few days. Either way, it's time to start watching your mailbox!

Also, at this point I will consider trades on a case by case basis. I can only trade the resident coins to Indiana residents, however I will trade the trackables to anyone with a cool coin that I don't allready have.

 

I'd much rather have a pile of 100 different coins than 100 of the same coin, :D.

Glad they are appearing in mailboxes. :anicute:

 

Hopefully some of them will work their way to the southern end of the state soon...sigh. -_-

Where did this lot of 100 coins come from?

Just 100 extra coins. I had to order at least 250 trackables. And I ordered 100 extra residents too, because they're cheap, and they're good for door prizes, give aways, trades, etc .
