Tranquility Geocoins

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

The Tranquility geocoins are one of my favorites, and now there are so many variations that I am losing track. Can you help me make a list of all the editions?

 

Thanks,

Valerie

Thanks,

here is a good start - the first site for names and the second for names and pictures

 

http://www.geocoincollection.com/cointrade/coinlist.asp

 

http://cointracking.com/ - put in tranquility in the search box and a bunch will show up.

 

i have also been trying to figure out how many different ones there are.

 

of course, we could just ask castleman!

I lost track of them after the first run or two.... I never got any of the recent ones for my own collection.

 

But.. I'm glad everyone enjoys the design. Its one of my favorite designs I have done. ;)

 

Id like to get my hands on a few of the newer versions (After I see whats all out there on this list) So, if anyone has any trades on em. Let me know.

For some reason, Castleman objects to this post and asked for the list to be removed?? I just love these coins and wish to keep seeking out all the editions I can find.

No, no objection, just some of the versions were made for individuals that asked for them and the last time a list was posted they were contacted by multiple people and bombarded with trade requests.

I would love to see a list, although i understand why you don't want one posted. Personally I am having a hard time with them in the math trade. I know there are beautiful coins as my mom has a couple, but having no way to see which editions are which colors, I cant really pick out which ones i want in the math trade. Is there any way to give an "coin name" and photo without revealing who made the coin? That why the minter wont have to worry about being bombarded with trade requests. Or perhaps someone can email me privately?

Then could we have to publicly sold list put up please, and maybe the others listed in a somewhat generic sense such that it is not obvious who had them done. Maybe just the metal and color scheme for those *special* ones? Thanks.

I've got 9 different Tranquillities. And I still feel as if I'm missing out.... ;)

 

Edited to say....I know of at least 15 versions....and all of them are gorgeous. It is one of the best coin designs I have ever seen :) I love seeing them in different colour and metal combinations.

The problem with the geocoin sites is that what ends up on them is often somewhat arbitrary (what ever the first person suggests the coin should be called) and not necessarily what the coin is officially called (or should be called), plus they contain no history. I'm trying to put together a comprehensive list with what I can source publicly as being the correct names, and some history - releases, etc (v1, v2...)

Share this post


Link to post

Right, my first attempt at a complete list follows.

 

Firstly some explanations, etc.

- this information has been sourced from these forums, Castle Coins & Pins website, the 2 main coin tracking sites, announcement emails from Castle Coins & Pins, and my good friend "Google" :)

- this information is not 100% correct, some of it was gained by looking at very low res photos

- the format below is "Coin Name/Edition":: "Enamel Colors Used"; "Metals Used" ("additional Info")

- I have listed 4 enamel sections. They are the ones on the front of the coin - where the globe is. Yes - I know there is actally 5 area, but I have ignored the plain ring near the center as it does not impact on this at all

- The enamel colors are listed starting from the outside of the coin, moving inwards

- a (t) beside the enamel color denotes a translucent enamel

- colors are rough guesses only

- metals are listed in a way that it should be clear which is which when it comes to the 2 tones

- dates are of when the coins went on sale. One date is wrong, but only by a few days, I think...

- I'm only human!!!

 

If you make changes to the list, please make it obvious what you have changed - use a different color text or bold it. Thanks.

that makes sense. i wish now i hadn't traded it. oh well, live and learn. i didn't realize when i bought that coin, very early in my collecting, that they didn't stay around forever. figured i could just replace it at some point.

 

this has been an expensive learning process!

 

i have decided to limit my collecting to two types, maybe three, tranquilities, astros and compass roses. that will make life so much simpler, doncha think?

Correct, I did a spring cleaning and sold out most of the things I've had sitting in boxes. I even posted a few pictures of all the stuff in another forum so people could see how much stuff was lonely in the boxes.

Notes on "Spook" Editions:

"Emerald" Edition - not the correct name, it is the "Green Giant" Edition

"Black Onyx" Edition - does not exist, maybe it is actually "Black Widow" - could someone please confirm if "Black Widow" Edition is no enamels on gold (raised) and black nickel

"Light" Two Tone Edition - does not exist

 

Quick Edit to add that maybe if people send me one of each I can then ensure all details are correct and get good photos of them all... he says hopefully... B)

I don't know what the "Black Onyx" is supposed to be, but the "Black Widow" is black and red. I don't have the coin at hand at the moment, but I think it is black nickel with red translucent and (maybe) black enamel.

 

Edit: Just realized that the "Black Onyx" has the same metals as the Luxury Edition. Maybe it is that one.

Don't remember wether this edition was really called "Black Onyx" (but that sound familiar to me) but there is a Trade-Only TQ done in antique copper with black translucent color sitting next to me ... B)B):laughing: AFAIR 25 were minted ... have to search for the sleeve that this beauty was protected with

Best not go there... it caused a fight last time.

 

The problem is that the design is so darn beautiful that it lends itself to being done again... and again... and again... B)

Hmmm, what agenda does this one have now? Probably the usual as we all know.

Unfortunate that a thread has to start a turn into the usual fiasco.

 

We each have our own opinions about coin editions.... (And are allowed them)

 

I don't see the above reply from AT as an agenda - but moreso as opinion.

Coin editions are a whole other thread....

 

I personally don't collect every version of a coin unless its:

 

One of my own designs

 

Or

 

I absolutely love the coin.

Sure...I have an agenda. I only bought all (at the time) of the all-metal varieties...seven in all.

 

As witnessed by my previous statement, it's not like I hate the coin or anything. I just think that (at the time) the 15 varieties were plenty for one coin.

Congratulations... Good luck with going cold turkey... I've heard that in theory it is possible... but I'm not sure if any has ever achieved it :)
