I like it a lot, but not sure about the likely close to $20 with shipping.

 

Sure it is not a coin for everyone.Its' detail in the artwork is amazing and its' size is not small.

A collector's item and not for caches.Initially I placed one in a cache and some Greek took it to another country and then the cache was archived.... Someone has it now in his/her private collection...

 

Here is the cache: Stadshuset

that's surelly one of the most pretty coins I have ever seen!!! the design is like the art in ancient terracota dishes!!! WOW!!! Huge geocoin and heavy!!!

 

Yes! this is mostly for collection, just like some other beautiful and expensive coins! If this one start its travels... Oh!!! It will not go far! :laughing:

 

I love it!!! It looks like an ancient plate or a cup!!!

 

Hercules!!!! the greatest here of Greece!!!! WOW! :o

 

I wish I knew about these coins earlier! I would surelly put their photos in my time line in Avroair's cointest! :surprise:

 

I love the message on the other side!!! We wish to be brave!!!

Ancient greeks lived so they can die and leave a glorius name behind them! the greatest thing was to die in a battle as a hero! If you were droping your shield and run away you were the "black sheep" in your city and in your family who was ashamed now!

 

antique copper as a metal is a great choise!! It really looks like terracota!!! :o

just a suggestion . . .

if you like the geocoin mentioned, perhaps you will also like the other three geocoins that this person has produced

 

I believe that you could get all four for about fifty dollars, including shipping (to the USA, less for Europe)

 

it should probably be noted that this geocoin is the most expensive of the four, at eleven euros

the other three are six, six, and seven euros

Talking about prices on the whole pack of four geocoins that I have,

shipping to USA of a registered envelope of the four costs 5.85 euros total 35.85 euros.

Shipping registered envelope to most European countries is 5.65 euros, total 35.65 euros.

 

I want to thank every geocacher who has trusted me so far.I will keep on the good work.

WOW!!!! Today I received the Hercules coin!!!! It is an amazing coin!!!!!!

It is so pretty!!! It is one of the most beautiful coins I have ever seen!

The details are fantastic and the size is big!!!!

It is a great design inspired from the artist way of ancient greeks called, red-figured pottery!

It was the main artistic way of decorating pottery in the ancient Classic period and actually from 530BC until 390BC! It started From Athens!!! :tongue:

 

It is surelly worth its money!!! WOW!!! :(

Oh! It comes the activation code too! Good!!!! :)

I would like to thank all the people who have purchased this geocoin from me so far.

Because of the bad economic crisis I would like to "get rid" the remaining coins of this series.

The new price for each coin of this series is 7,50 euros.

 

If any of the e-shops is interested on buying once all the remaining coins, please contact me so that we can negotiate the price.
