The Coin Dropping Fairy

Recommended Posts

I found a beautiful coin near a cache today. One I have not seen before. Has anyone else found one of these? It was hidden as if just dropped near the Tour De Grant Wherigo cache I did today. It's a beautiful coin with a fairy sitting on an ammo can on the front & this sweet verse on the back:

 

I stopped to drop

a little token

to leave a gift

of something that's spoken.

It should put a smile

on your face,

and make your caching

a better place.

I took some pictures where I found it:

And posted a log to thank The Coin Dropping Fairy for her gift:

Once I got home I took some better pictures than the ones I took in the field. Here is a close up of the front & back:

It is so shiny I had to take the picture of the back at a sharp angle so the message could be read. Thank you so much Coin Dropping Fairy!! This little token, this gift will be a treasure of my collection. It will grace my collection forever! :laughing:

 

Has the Coin Dropping Fairy dropped any coins in your area yet?

Congrats Sarah! Couldn't have happened to a better person.

 

How exciting, another mystery coin. And, what a cute coin this one is! Reminds me of Tinker Bell. DD's daughter Heather is just going to go bonkers when she sees it. My daughter also loves Tinker Bell.

Congrats Sarah. What a great looking coin. I see there has been 3 stops so far. I hope there is a stop in Illinois since we are only across the river. :laughing:

Congratulations! You really deserve this after your recent, very generous cointests! I would love to see the fairy come to my area, too, but I haven't spotted her yet!

WTG Sarah!! I'm so glad you found one!

 

I like the message on the back but I must sheepish admit to a DUH moment when I had to think what TCDF might mean!! I actually thought about googling it but don't tell anyone that..... :laughing:

I hope a lot more of these start popping up soon. :laughing: A lot of folks here deserve such a beautiful coin! :D

 

Here's a wierd thing: TCDF has logged three caches in & near St. Louis but so far only one coin found and not for lack of looking. Maybe the other finders are not forum frequenters?

I'm glad to see that at least one of the coins that I had lost has been found. I will be leaving more in my travels as I run from here to there. If you happen to find one, I hope you treasure it. :anicute:

 

Here in Europe we really believe in fairytales. And most of the stories came from this continent. So the Coin Fairy is more than welcome in our woods :D

I had seen that there was 3 sightings of the fairy north of me. It was a 2 and a half hour drive so I got together with another cache to make the drive up there to see if we could get lucky and make a day of caching out of it. When went to all 3 spots that had been visited and it was at the second stop that we got lucky. MutherAndSun and myself was at the cache site when JustUsTwo came walking up, they too had seen the logs and was going to check it out themselves. We all started looking for it and I was the lucky one who came up with the coin. Thanks Coin Dropping Fairy for such a great gift. It will always stay in my collection. :D

Congrads Joranda, on finding a mystery coin and a beautiful one at that. We are so glad to have finally gotten your first Mystery Coin. I been hoping and praying that the Coin dropping Fairy will shed her fairy dust and spread her wings here to me for my birthday on July 15. What a wonderful Birthday that would make it for me.

Oh how exciting! I'd never heard about a mystery coin until I read this thread. I hope I can find a coin someday. Thanks for the generosity TCDF, keep flitting around, far and wide, and maybe someday we will all be blessed with such a beautiful coin.

Haven't had the pleasure, yet, however, we got an incredible package from Degai that was chock FULL of beautiful fairy things, so I count myself lucky! I know that at least one of TCDF's family has to be represented here in some of these beautiful photos in the book we received!

We found one of these beautiful coins inside the post of a chain link fence at MWGB. Saw a string tied to the chain link that went under the cap of the fence post. We had been looking all over when out caching and luckily found one Friday night!! Thanks Coin Dropping Fairy!!!
