+tsunrisebey Posted September 2, 2008 Share Posted September 2, 2008 (edited) Dragonfly Talisman Geocoin Dragonfly meaning 'Illusion'. Dragonfly is a magical creature that of the dreamtime. The iridescence of its wings reminds us of the colors not found in our everyday experience. Dragonfly brings wisdom and enlightenment and communications from the elemental world: air, fire, water, and earth. The Dragonfly Talisman is a intricate, hand drawn design that is representative of a 'good luck' charm or piece. This coin is meant to be a fun blend of the illusion one sees when geocaching and a 'lucky charm' to help us see past the illusion and find the geocache. This is a symbolic geocoin and as usual; I choose to use nature and her creatures as my inspiration. In my experience of geocaching; the journey and the beauty that you find along the way is what makes the experience a magical one. I know what this design means to me but I hope that when you see it or hold it, you find the meaning for yourself. Maybe it's just another pretty coin to you or the dragonfly symbolizes something special; it is up to you to find it Introducing the Dragonfly Talisman Geocoin Available for purchase on (Friday) September 5th, 8:00 am MST (Montana time). $9.85 a piece 1.75", 3 gems, 3D front & 2D back, Trackable w/ unique icon.

Trackable on coincodes.com Here is a link to the coin information page: http://tsunrisebey.googlepages.com/dragonflytalismangeocoin Sales links will be posted shortly before the sale begins but most of you know where to find the webstore anyhow This will be the first big sale through the webstore so my suggestion is to give the web store a 'test run' because this store is set up a bit differently than most of you are used to. We've worked through most of the issues and most errors are made because of an unchecked box. You can do a test run by going to the 'PIN' section and use the 'test' product to go through the entire system, just ignore any inovice you receive, I'll know what you are doing. At the time of the sale, I won't be able to assist you due to being busy initially. Please be patient on this first go 'round The colors turned out much more vibrant than I can show on the pictures but most of you are familiar with how translucents look in person. They turned out really nice and I'm very happy with them. This is the first time I gave each version a name; dorkfish and I were joking while chatting the other night and we decided I should 'name' the coins for fun. Trust me my names are better than the ones she came up with, lol. * Ocean Mist-Antique Silver with 3 clear gemstones-this is my favorite!* * Steel Viking (yup a football reference)-Nickel with 3 purple gemstones-this is my favorite!* * Nutella -Antique Copper with 3 black gemstones-this is my favorite! (looks kinda chocolatey)* * Crimson-Antique Copper with 2 red/1 green gemstones-this is my favorite! (looks more dark red and like a forest green (translucents) than the pic shows).
