Post your geocoin photos here

Thanks for all the compliments!

My set-up is actually very simple. I use whatever light is in the room (no separate light source to light the coin). The coin is placed inside a semi-transparent lamp shade. Then, I set my camera on a tripod, set a custom white balance, and shoot the coin with a long exposure so that it isn't too dark. Finally, I sometimes modify the white balance some more on the computer and erase any really strong shadows if needed. Hope this helps!

It's been a while. The 5th International Math Trade just completed and I took some photos of the coins I received in the trade. I've also got photos from last year's Math Trade that I never posted here. Most of these pictures were done quickly and might not be that good, but they do show the detail of the coins pretty well.

Does anyone know where I could get one of these coins? I have been looking for this very coin for some time now. Please contact me if you have one for sale or trade. Thanks

Spectacular photo, MotoCycleBoi! I love the composition, the dark background, and the depth of field.


Here's my latest. This is my Texas Geocaching Association 2006 geocoin I've had in my collection for way too long. Time to let this one go traveling around the geoworld! :ph34r: Its goal will be to visit places in Texas where my family vacationed when I was young(er). If you find it in a cache, please help it along on its journey.

Okay, the 2007 Hong Kong geocoins have been placed into caches now to start their travels. Actually, they already traveled some with me and had a few extreme adventures before being released. A couple of the adventures even had video cameras rolling, so I posted links to the videos in the geocoins' logs. Hopefully these coins will travel far and wide and be seen and enjoyed by lots of geocachers.

Thank you very much for all these great photos. I love them! You can see all the details of a coin better than having it in the hand for yourself :lol:

Got some more geocoins in from the 7th International Math Trade. I was really pleased with the trades again. If you're not participating in it you should. It's a great way to trade coins. There were over 1,000 coins offered for trade.


Here's the Assassin's Respite antique silver and blue:

The latest Math Trade coin I got in: Caching on the Moon. This was one of my top picks in the Math Trade because it comes with the deed to a parcel of land on the moon printed on the back of the coin. What a great idea!

Makes you think about 5 generations from now if a rare metal is found on that land.... will it really go to your family when it is mined?
