2008 Groundspeak Volunteer Geocoins

Recommended Posts

I've been asked a few times recently in private about these and am now in a position to confirm their existence:

For the folks that don't know (are are new here):

 

What are they?

Coins produced by Signal himself and given to volunteer reviewers and moderators.

 

What are they used for?

It's up to each recipient to determine that. They can be set free to travel, given as gifts, etc. but no direct recipients have sold them (Signal wouldn't like that).

 

Are they trackable?

of course.

 

What does the icon look like?

When I get home I'll post a picture of the 1st Volunteer coin for comparison/historical knowledge unless somebody beats me to it.

 

Are the coins available for purchase anywhere?

Sorry, no.

 

Questions?

I've got a question..... it's similar to the one BigD(ave) asked: Can I have one? I'll trade you for it (wanna German Reviewer GC?).

I'll have to second what my noodly buddy says above. These are outstanding coins this year. I had the great honor of receiving one in the mail. Why you might ask? Well, I don't know. I guess just because. It wasn't a trade, that's for sure. I got it from some Pastafarian dude, for just being me . . . :huh:

 

I'm sure if you look hard enough, you can find my coin, since it's activated and I don't own it. It will certainly take a special place in my collection next to my 2005 ones that I was giving as face to face gifts from my local approver and a very special Cache Agent :)

 

Thanks FSM :)

Nice coin, I saw a 2005 volunteer, got to bring it to an event but I sent it off with the package going to Iraq. Maybe a couple of you can bring yours to GW6 so the rest of us can have a peek at the new one. Very nice indeed!

Well, I have nudged our local reviewer with a hint but he hasn't taken it yet. I have hopes tho. He gave me & my BF one of the 05's and he knows how much I looooooove geocoins so hopefully one will grace my collection in the (near) future. :huh:

Would love to trade one of these for my MRJIFFY's Summer Meltdown 2008 coins. See trading post #11122 for details.

 

Thanks,

I found one of these this weekend....it was in the middle of a handshake. :anibad: Thanks!

That's a great way to get one - congrats!

 

Would love to trade one of these for <snip>

I should have stated that I won't be trading these. They will be used as gifts much like I did with the Copper version of my coin when I made those. I can't speak for other reviewers or moderators but that's my plan.

 

 

PengoFamily, thanks for posting the other pic.

All volunteers should resign, and all your cache are belong to us! Make your time.

 

*slap*

 

Sorry, I meant all volunteers should resign, and all of us without a volunteer coin should get one.

 

*slap ....slap*

 

Sorry....I mean, OH GEEZ DON'T HIT ME AGAIN...I'M SORRY.

 

*awkward silence*

 

Um....carry on. Nothing to see here. All of our volunteers do great jobs, especially our forum moderators and Arkansas and Oklahoma's reviewers. I name those specifically because I deal with them on a regular basis. I mean it.

 

Scouts Honor.

I was resently lucky to have aquired more than one of the 2008 Groundspeak Volunteer Geocoins, so as I have seen that others are frantic to get one I am willing to put one up for trade. PM me if you are interested.
