Imagine Peace and Close Encointers were received in the mail, Easter Geocoin Bunny(Charlie Brown) was found in a cache, Easter Geocoin Bunny(Woodstock) was given to me by a friend and Guardian Angel just appeared in my coin book at an event about a year ago.

I have only received one mystery coin the Mickey Diver. The rest have been trades. Carpe Diem, Dragonfly Dreams, Mystery Heart antique silver T/O, Cache Reaper, Geo Honu (Mystery Turtle), Creepy Crawly Cachers, Mystical Greenman, Dark Knight black nickel and shiny nickel and The Wishing Coin. I think I treasure the Mickey Diver and Mystery Turtle the most as they were my most wanted. I only have two more mystery coins I would love to have. One is the Highland Geofairy (this is for my husband who hails from the Highlands of Scotland) and the other is Mr. Gray (this one is for me as I DO Believe)

The new Highland Geofairy is only available in Scotland. If your husband visits the Inverness area I may be able to arrange something.

Fantastic! I wonder if the second half of our team would be more into something like this, than the pretty birds and horses I keep showing... :D

I dig the blacked out version.... stays more true to form.... plus it makes Darth look like he's ridin' on dubs yo. And... I like the "sith happens" slogan :) Nice touch. Will there be a Darth Maul edition.... that would be a freakin' sweet mystery edition. I'm excited.... havn't thought about that series forever.

I think the first version looks realy cool.

The complet black version is nice but it do not looks realy detailed.

The nickel version is for me more interested.

 

But i would love all versions ;-)

 

Best regards René

you should start a whole new thread devoted to just the sith coin! then all the info will be in one place so to speak.

Oh, cool coin!! :D I will have to watch for this one. Hope the "test" becomes fruitful! (Especially if it's blueberry, I love blueberries. :lol: )

There is a chance this will not be a mystery coin because of the price it will cost me. Either way, it will not be offered for sale. I will only trade at events I attend or you may find one in a cache. It will not be mailed out unless I know you.

I have the "Lord of the Sith" coin - picked it up on my road trip to GeoWoodstock IX but realized I could not log it - the trackable number is smugged out. It's a really cool coin - who does it belong to and why is the tracking number gone? Anyway, at least I found out a little something about it. Will keep searching and will drop off in a cache so it will confuse other geocachers.

There were a bunch of these coins that had errors so I'm guessing that the tracking numbers were removed from those and then the coin left as swag.

I don't have any mystery coins yet . . . . i believe if you buy a mystery coin it's not earned . . . .it means more when it is given to you . . . .then that is a good memory. . . . isn't that what geocaching is making good memories and making good friends. . . .i met my bestfriends the drunkin monkeys while out geocaching!!! :rolleyes:

I've met a couple of those on the trail :laughing:

 

I have been blessed with some mystery coins... I can't wait to be finished with school so I can return the favor. Check back in 3 years.

I hope you will forgive a newbie for asking, but I'm unfamiliar with mystery geocoins and would someone tell me what it's all about? I'm about to reach 50 finds and have placed 2 caches, but I have yet to find a geocoin (and I don't really have money to spend on buying them). So I'm browsing the forums to learn more about them. Thank you. :)

Welcome KaposiaDarcy to the most infectious addiction known as geocoin collection. Mystery coins are just that, coins that are ordered and sent by ??? Some of these coins have specific reason (NOL, Imagine, the Devil made me do It, etc) and some are given by cachers that have specific names (Mr Gray, Darth Vader, Bell Witch, Geocoin Fairy, etc).

 

As to why they are given, well if I had to guess it is to bring a smile to someone, to acknowledge an achievement, in friendship, to pay it forward and many number of other good reasons.

 

So how do they know where to send them? There is a post to request your address be placed in a spreadsheet Geocoin Address Book and if you wait and participate here in the geocoin forum, you may one day find a package addressed to you from yourself (???) and a coin. It may take some time, it may be tommorrow, it is always a pure guilty pleasure when it does happen and you'll never forget your first.

 

As I said welcome and keep up the search (yes there are some in caches as well, I know :D )

I have been very fortunate to have been given a few along the way, and have payed it forward myself. It is an awesome feeling to find a hidden gift in the mailbox, and it seems that when someone sends you one it brings with it a most unexpected lift in your day!

 

Thank you to each and every mysterious coiner for your sacrifice and contributions!
