+eragonSaphira Posted February 6, 2008 Share Posted February 6, 2008 The eragonSaphira and Gold Reef City Mint GeoCoin. As South Africans, currently all GeoCoins we have, were made outside our borders. A while back I started to do some research in order to find out if it would be possible to manufacture geocoins within South Africa. After days of research and contacting various coin manufacturers, The Gold Reef City Mint (GRC Mint) got back to us and they sounded very excited about the venture. One thing led to the next and finally our coins went into the production process at the end of January. The coin is made to a South African coin size which is 38mm, and is called the "eragonSaphira and GRC Mint" geocoin. This is the first GeoCoin to be completely manufactured (that we are aware of and excluding the Groundspeak Tracking numbers from the US) within the borders of South Africa by a real mint that also mints legal tender coins. As this is the first geocoin that is manufactured in South Africa, we will use it as an exhibition piece for "GeoCoins South Africa" and the "Gold Reef City Mint". Being the beginning of great things, we would like to keep this coin very special and thus have decided that only 500 of the "eragonSaphira and GRC Mint" geocoins will ever be produced. Should anyone be interested in these coins, you may contact me on email@example.com for more information or should you be interested in pre-orders. Photos of the actual minted coin will be posted shortly. Quote Link to comment
