I have seen discussions in the past about what geocoins are your favorite and they usually end up being all trackable ones. There are some great trackable coins out there. But I would like to know what non trackable coins are your favorite and why? In the beginning all geocoins were non-trackable from what I can tell. Correct me if I am wrong.

 

Some of my favorites are;

 

-Indy Diver coins

 

-Coinfusion Project coins

 

-Ajetpilot

 

There are others too.

Yaahls feather - great coin, wonderful idea and design and it's crow-related...:)

all my favorite coins have something to do with crows...

 

Dancing Fool's crow geocoin - if it shines pick it up....:sad:))

 

LoriDarlin personal coin - wonderful coin of a great person, a moon on one side and a cross on the other, paired with an interesting saying.

 

so glad that i have these non-trackable beauties in my collection.

 

have to think of some others, too, there are a lot of more nice coins out there....:(

Yeah, your right about the CCC coin it was on the edge? Sorry. The I Love Geocoins is the one with the boy heart on one side and the girl heat on the other (those are not trackable). And the Snow Globes were offered in trackable and non trackable. We got the non trackable one when they came out.

Hmmm . . .

 

This begs a question

 

If it is not trackable, what makes it a "geocoin" ?

 

Don't get me wrong

I am not taking issue or nitpicking

I'm just curious

 

For example, that pewter feather is absolutely awesome

I'd be happy to just see one, let alone own one

It is certianly a work of art, and a stunning one at that

But what, specifically, is there about it that makes it a "geocoin" ?

 

I'm guessing that it is pretty much just that the creator/maker/producer deemed it to be such

And nothing more (nor anything less)

 

I will be interested to hear other thoughts on this topic

My personal geocoins aren't trackable but they're geocoins because they say so right on the geocoin:

Seriously, I don't think tracking makes it a geocoin. If it was made in the spirit of geocaching, that makes it a geocoin.

 

Some of my favorite non-trackables are the Tikis, 2Dolphins, Lemon Fresh Dog Geobone, Yime, and many more I can't quite remember right now. :P

I am sure that the oldies around here will correct me if I am wrong but with the exception of mountain bike all geocoins were swag and non trackable. When Groundspeak first allowed tracking on them there was still a load of non trackables being made and traded. Once the idea of tracking and especially icons came in then the non trackable took a back seat in many peoples mind. As a lot of newbies came in then there wasw less concentration on these. Evolution happens - not many non trackables swopped on forum (Broken W is an exception) now. It is all mystery coins and missions and cointests. We have in my opinion lost individual creativity in some cases as the need for icon and tracking adds so much money. I could not have afforded that on the top of my chester coin I would have had to have worked a deal as I did with the sherlock holmes coin and this leads to compromise for the company's commercial gain.

 

Just my 2 penniworth

Maybe we should have a non trackable trading thread - "Back when I was Young....."

It's an excellent question and much debated, but in the end it always seems to boil down to the same things: 1) Produced by geocachers and for geocachers 2) produced specifically with the intent of leaving in caches or cachers hands 3) often the personal signature item of a geocacher as a form of identity ("I was here") to enrich the caching experience for others. From what I've seen some of the earliest geocoins (and most infamous) were non-trackable. Look at some just here in the coins listed and you'll see what I mean. Want to stir a really big pot? Try and argue that YemonYime's Yimes aren't geocoins! :anitongue: That'll get things cookin! :anicute:

 

You might also ask what make a signature item a geocaching signature item, what makes a swag bag out of a backpack or a caching partner out of a friend. :laughing:
