Dutch Lion mystery coin

Recommended Posts

It would be awesome if the Dutch Lion would visit Northern California. I know some really nice caches in the middle of the forest that are Lion-Friendly.

Got this in the mail today. It is a beautifully done coin, and of course I am more then a bit partial to lions. Thanks for thinking of me Mystery Dutch Lion, R O A R! Peace.

 

And a thanks to CF30 for allowing me to hijack your great photo, hope you don't mind.

I've been a bit busy over the past couple of weeks for a number of reasons. It was so bad that I actually threw all my bills and mail that I have received the past week and a half in my bag to look at and pay while at work, lol. I haven't opened much of anything because I'm kinda behind (the story of my life). I check in the threads here and there but haven't been reading much. (Yes Pete, wii is to blame too, lmao). Anyhow, I had a package that came in about a week ago and finally opened it at work today and figured it to be a trade I forgot about and much to my surprise, it was a sweet Dutch Lion Mystery coin :rolleyes: That put a nice smile on my face and then I paid my bills :cry: . I'm a Leo too and love the coin, thank you for your generosity mystery coin person (people?) it was very much appreciated and will go into my special binder :D Congrat's to those who have received this cute coin.

 

Thanks again!

:rolleyes::) I found a Dutch Lion coin :):)

 

Yesterday evening I found out that there might be a Dutch Lion coin in a cache near Amersfoort, the Netherlands (thanks for the tip Millieballon!!!). Would I drive all the way from the Hague to Amersfoort the next morning with the risk that someone else had already taken it?? Hmmmm.... ok, why not! If the cache would turn out to be empty, I could always just do some nice caches in the woods around Amersfoort. And it was my day off anyway. So I got up early this morning and left at 07.00 to do some Lion hunting. When I arrived in Amersfoort at 08.15 it was just starting to get light.

 

Found the cache quickly and YES! the coin was still in there!!!!!!! Thank you Dutch Lion for making and giving away this beautiful coin. It is my first mystery coin, and extra special because it's a Dutchh one. I left an unactivated geocoin in the cache for the next visitor in search of the Dutch Lion, to make up for the Lion coin already gone.

 

Here are some pictures:

Congratulation Li-Z! You really did hunt the coin!

Nice gesture also to leave another unactivated coin for the next one. That suits the spirit of the Dutch Lion.

 

I'm also happy for the other receivers.

If you want to hunt check the website and read the gc.com logs.

Today I got an envelope that brought a smile to my face :angry:

The Dutch Lion #94 has arrived in Norway (or should I say lions, cause there was one coin for me and one to drop in a cache)

 

Thank you for making my day better!

 

Edit to add congrats to the other recievers/finders!

Just noticed this coin due to the large amount of recent recipients. I just finished a unit on Dutch Baroque art at school, and would love to find this piece of art for my collection.

In stead of doing all that photoshopping you could have gone out to find one in a cache today ( the Dutch Lion has an account on Geocaching.com). The cache is not to far away from your home. I don't know if it is still there though. Good Luck

Sadly the Dutch Lion hasn't done any caching in Nova Scotia yet :angry:

 

He (she?) has only logged 11 caches in the Netherlands and one in Missouri (???). Oddly enough, it would probably be just as easy for me to get to Holland as it would be to get to Missouri. :D

 

( my wife is standing behind me and saying 'you are not going to either place!' )

The Dutch Lion has made it to the Lions Lair and fits nicely among my collection of Lions as well as my coin collection! The biggest decision I have now is what collection to add it to!

The Dutch lion has been roaring very hard these last days.

We are happy for the new receivers.

 

Escpecially for Lionslair. I think it is a really good addition to their lion collection :antenna:

Nice pictures.

 

The weekend has started. We are curious to see if the Dutch lion is going to do some caching.

It is fun to watch the actions and stories of the hunters.

 

Happy caching and happy hunting.

I have been away from the forum for quite a while. I am currently back to school, living in another city during the week, and my whole life is quit busy and complicated. It is not easy to be away from home for so long. No time for coins, and limited time for caching.

I guess I missed a lot of great coins, fun missions, and great stories around new (and old) mystery coins :)

 

Last week, after a long time, I made two trades. So I wasn't surprised to find a bubble mailer in my mailbox today. But I was confused that the stamps were from the Netherlands! I wasn't expecting any coins from the Netherlands! You can't imagine how surprised I was when I found a little package inside with a lion printed on it, which contained a really beautiful coin that I had never heard of :):P:D

 

Thanks so much!!! This coin is very special to me.... receiving a mystery coin is always a great feeling, but this time it gives me the feeling that I am not forgotten by the community even after a long time that I have been away. Thank you. :D And tomorrow will be a special day as a geocacher, if everything works, I will log my 1000th find tomorrow (it will be a D5/T5 cache). Perfect timing for such a wonderful gift!

 

THANK YOU again, for the coin and everything involved with it :D:D:D

Thank you so much, Dutch Lion, for making my day today!

 

I've said it before and I'll say it again, mystery coiners somehow or another know just when to send their special gifts. Horrible headache since about 3 am this morning and it has continued all day long. Hanna brought me the mail when she got home, though, and it was like a ray of sunshine and MUCH better medicine than the paracetamol that I'm allowed to take right now!

 

THANK YOU!!! I'm now the proud owner of number 79!

 

Naomi :)
