Mr Mackey has this to say:

 

When the Tempting the Fates project began we desired a coin that would put fear into the hearts of would be thieves. We called upon the denizens of the underworld to watch over these coins and strike retribution against their enemies. When the Fortune Favors the Bold project began we threw caution to the wind as humans often do and dared the world to do it's level best, but promised that nothing would deter our gracious nature to share our traveling coins. This time we call upon a much higher set of powers to protect our coins. With the aid of the heavens themselves (and you of course) our travelers are ready to quest forth and record their incredible travels around the world.

 

We begin with research, more research and yet even more research to find the keys to protecting our coins from the muggles and mishaps that plague geocoins. To our delight we found both the necessary keys and the heavenly guardians of all things geocaching along the way.

 

Our story begins with King Solomon in the 10th Century B.C. and his incredible story. When given the chance by God himself to have absolutely anything one could possibly desire like wealth or power, he instead chose wisdom and knowledge to rule justly over his people. The heavens answered by rewarding him with such knowledge as has never been known before or after his lifetime. Much of his knowledge has been recorded and among those records are seals of protection calling upon all manner of otherworldy creatures to aid man in his goals.

 

"Thus saith the Lord: According to thy word have I given unto thee a wise and understanding heart, so that before thee was none like unto thee, nor ever shall arise." - The Key of Solomon, translated into Latin from the Hebrew idiom

 

In researching we learn that there is an Archangel known to Solomon as being dedicated to presiding over treasures, protecting them from the eyes of would-be thieves and revealing treasures to those of pure heart who hunt their locations. This Archangel is Paraseil and his powers are beyond our comprehension. The seals required to call upon this powerful host are imprinted on this coin along with the seal known commonly as the First Pentacle of Jupiter. "This serveth to invoke the Spirits of Jupiter and especially those whose names are written around the Pentacle, among whom Parasiel is the Lord and Master of Treasures and teacheth how to become possessor of places wherein they are." - Writings from the Greater Key of Solomon. So be pure of heart and steadfast for this coin is a powerful talisman to the good geocachers of the world.

 

Among the many items left in the wake of King Solomon and his newfound knowledge was his personal signet ring. It is believed to have been another key in calling upon the heavens for aid and elements of it's design have also made their way onto this coin. Inscribed with what will become known as the Star of David, the ring is inlaid with four jewels and we bring those jewels to this coin as well along with the sillouette of Archangel Paraseil standing guard over this coin and all nearby treasures.

 

There are more goodies, symbols and secrets hidden within the design and some will be revealed over time in cointests to come while others you might just divine on your own. So Tempt the Fates with the denizens of the underworld if you dare. Find that Fortune Favors the Bold when you throw your fears aside and stride forth in your endeavors. The heavens watch over it all and The Seals of Solomon might just lend its protection to you and your caches if your heart is pure and your intentions are good.

Absolutely gorgeous. I'm a big fan of Chris' work! Ordered two, then went back and picked up one of his Penn. Train coins (my husband will love it) and the new Harmony Karma. Chris, you are one talented puppy!

 

Edited to add: what really awes me, though, is the research that goes into each design -- everything in the coin is loaded with meaning, and I just absolutely cannot resist coins like that. They are awesome on multiple levels -- not just the coin itself, but the background too! : )

Busted my budget but I could not resist. This coin is awesome and the story behind just makes it doubly desirable to me. Thanks for this wonderful coin!

 

Thanks for all the support everyone! :D I really love these kinds of projects even though they are a lot more work and commitment. It's amazing what I've learned doing the research though and if you delve into the research yourself just a little bit... what you'll learn will blow your mind. I know it sent my imagination down many a twisted path. Hopefully some of these coins will find their own paths traveling in caches though! :grin:

 

(A special thanks to the folks at geocoinstore for not giving up on this one when it came to the crystals. I think it was worth the extra effort and I hope everyone is as happy with the results as I am.) :P

Sorry, I'll stop B)

 

We have/had 17 different new geocoins on order for Sept./Oct., and this was one of my favorites. I'm dying to get the photos taken and get them up for sale. This is the sixth new one this week, so I'm waiting for the actual coins to arrive at my house. I'm not the actual recipient of the big box . . .

 

Wait until you see my favorite one. I won't be opening that thread, the artist will ;)

That is a sharp looking coin! Goodness gracious... I'm going to have to start selling off furniture to fund my coin addiction!

 

Wanna borrow a cat? This is the third coin I've ordered this week so one of the cats may have to go out on loan for the month unless she can take up eating something out of the yard. :o
