+Renegade Knight Posted October 15, 2009 Share Posted October 15, 2009 ..."What is a Geocoin? A geocoin is a special coin created by individuals or groups of geocachers as a kind of signature item or calling card. ... I culled the larger defintion to get back to basics. It's fair to add that some coins only relationship to caching is that they are tracked on this site (or others). Metal TB's would be a more accurate term for those commercial coins but most geocoin collectors are happy to collect them and call them geocoins so they have their place in the geocoin enthusiast community. At the end of the day it's the larger community that decides what is and isn't a geocoin. I'm at one end and think commerical tripe is merely trackable metal TB's. You are at the other saying "if it aint tracked it aint crap". The larger community is the middle. One good thing came out of all this you did inspire my next non trackable redneck edition coin made from 100% genuine washer blanks and painted to flawed perfection. You even inspired the name. You should head on over to that thread read up and send in your guess. Your first instinct on the name is probably the right one. Then you can sell it as a Token on eBay and a geocoin collector will probably bid a buck two eighty for it and add it to their geocoin collection and you all will be happy. Quote Link to comment
