Where do you rank? Personal geocoins only (metals).

Recommended Posts

A long time ago before geocoins was as popular as they are now, there was a website made by the mighty Team Fisur :P . Here you could keep track of the lastest geocoins (wood, metal, plastic, clay, etc.)

 

Looking at the sight you could keep track of who made what coins. Looking at the web sight I estimate that my coin was (maybe) number 20-23 of the first metal geocoins ever made.

 

Here's a challenge to you... Where does your metal personal geocoin rank?

 

This is only for what order your metal coins was made and not used as judging the looks or designs of geocoins :laughing: . So lets be nice please.

Didn't Fisur add coins when he found out about them, not postthem in order of when they were minted? Namely he has Team Fisur #1 then Moun10Bike #2...

Thats correct., but for it's time (the websight), the site was updated weekly and it was the best way to keep track of what was new for period. Later, as we all know, other websites came along that kept track of coins similar to how team fisur did (when they found out).

Team FISUR ranking: Around 5

We started placing Team FISUR geocoins in caches on October 19, 2002.

(There were 100, and they're all gone.)

 

Cache on,

Somewhere around the 10 or 11ish for me : ) (speaking of metal only) correct me if wrong...I just bet somebody out there knows the order, if it really matters?

 

I to enjoyed hte FISUR site and used it all the time...his website was the go to web site for coins and siggies.

The FISUR site was one of the first sites I referenced on my page. I still keep it there as a historical reference for a list of some of the hardest coins to get now days.

We would like to thank everyone for their kind words about our Geocoin Designs page (which is part of our Rhode Island Geocaching site). As other more sophisticated geocoin sites developed, there was no longer a need to continue the weekly updates. But it was fun while it lasted.

 

Back on topic, here is what we believe are the first metal personal geocoins, in an approximate order:

 

Moun10Bike (definitely #1)

waypoint15

DHOBBY1

Indy Diver

Team FISUR (placed at the top of the list on our Geocoins Designs page because, well, it's our page :unsure:)

Wanderingdragon

GeoNap

Vacman

Dos Leos (homemade)

SquareD22 (homemade)

Conejo Cachers (is this a personal one?)

Pepper

GD's Geocoin (aka: The Mystery Geocoin) (could be higher on the list)

blazerfan

Haber Cache Tokens

 

Any tweaking of the list order would be appreciated.

Hope this helps.

Well my personal is in the final samples stage so I think that ranks me around 4,417 (counting different metals as different coins). I'm basing this on www.geocoincollection.com showing 4282 in their database (which is likely nearly but not totally complete) and the expectation that 100+ new coins will come out before mine do.

Don't know what number ranking our first geocoin was, but as far as we know, our coin was the last non-trackable (iconless) coin that was allowed to be pre-sold on these forums.

I think this a a little better:

Moun10Bike (definitely #1)

DHOBBY1

waypoint15

Indy Diver

Team FISUR

GD mystery coins

Wanderingdragon

GeoNap

Vacman

Dos Leos (homemade)

SquareD22 (homemade)

Conejo Cachers

Pepper

blazerfan

Haber Cache Tokens

 

This is just my idea and I do know Moun10Bikes and Dhobby1 were in production around the same time and the GD's are made around a little after Moun10Bike

Ours was the first one in Australia I believe. May actually still be the only one as far as I know.

And what a lovely coin it is :) I dont know of any others, but we might have to change that one day (when we have some 'spare' cash! :) I already know who I want it designed by :)

Kind of a vague thread topic since almost no one besides the people on the Fisur site knows where their coin might be ranked in historical order. Cav Scout - do you have a good place for people to go to check the order of their coin's minting or are you mearly pointing the mirror at yourself? :)

I've been told there is a book/catalog/list of some sort being made that documents all of the coins that have been made so far. Anyone know of this?

Anyone have dates attached to these? Also, the USA Oregon and Texas state coins should be up there, not personals but worthy of a mention.

My first coin came out around 6/2005

 

Fisur, any clue where that ranks it? I know I wasn't too far behind blazerfan.

Fun topic, it got me looking back into the history of the trading thread. Team Shydog V1 coin was offered for trade on page 10, June 27, 2005. Boy those were the fun days! (Sounding really old now, must go to bed)
