Dr. Whoever Posted August 7, 2007 Share Posted August 7, 2007 Geocaching - Gone To The Dogs Available Tuesday 8/7/07 at 6 PM Pacific Our newest coin is a very special one – it’s dedicated to our caching Best Friends. The front features a bevy of breeds - from small to the largest along with a few varieties of cache containers to boot! Can you find and identify them? With all the caching canines we see on the forums, in profiles and gallery photos - we figured these four legged friends needed their own tribute coin! The back of the coin features dog themed scrollwork, and designs UNDER enamel, with a dog bone tracking number area. No detail is without dogs! Even the icons are dogs, and paws - two different ones! The detail on this coin is so INCREDIBLE - at first, the mint told us it couldn't be done, but we disagreed. We considered thinning out the selection of dogs, eliminating some colors - but in the end, we couldn't bear to sacrifice the detail. So....after 11 re-do’s with the mint, the final design is exactly like the initial concept - right down to the light glistening in the dog’s eyes. It took a bit longer to get it right, but it was well worth all the work involved to be able to present the quintessential canine coin. The Coin measures 1.75 inches x 3.5mm, with 23 different colors of hard and translucent enamels used (I believe this is the most different colors ever used on a geocoin….correct me if I am wrong). Regular editions have been minted in Rhodium and Gold with a limited number in Black Nickel and Copper. "Geocaching - Gone to the Dogs" is begging to join your collection! Paula of geocoindesign.com really put her artistic talents to work with this geocoin. She hand drew every breed, including my beloved Jack Russell Terrier Tasha and her Boxer Cosmo. Each one of these caching companions has phenomenal details and this coin is sure to be one of the classics of all time.
