"10 years of geocaching" macro geocoins (3")

Recommended Posts

 

I bought one of these at GWVIII. I didn't get any manufacturer for activation. How and where do I get the activation code?

 

actually there should have been a sticker with the code along with the coin. however you can always retrieve it here:

geocoins.biz

good news: Groundspeak will order more of the GS version, too.

so there will be more of that version for sure.

When we filled out that survey, it said that although it wasn't a binding order, we WERE expected to buy:

 

remember: this is not a final binding order. however, if you fill in this form, you are expected to buy.

 

I DID expect to buy!! Now I may not be able to? :D I am NOT happy. :):D:lol:

 

Me too. :(

 

Had I known they would be for sale in the US then I probably wouldn't have bothered signing up.

 

However, even those which were available in the US were only available at GW...so now I guess we won't be getting one? Or if we do it looks like it will probably be August (or later) before we can purchase.

 

Color me confused. :)

I picked up one of these (Polished Gold version) from my favorite beancounter at Groundspeak during GW8 for US$10. Although the coin is 3", it is also zinc based, so the expected 'heft' is not there as it would have been with a copper based coin. The design of the coin is spectacular. I would have preferred IHE to the SE/Epoxy combo, but its beautiful nonetheless and a fantastic addition to my meager collection.

I made a reservation, however I was under the impression I could get a coin with the GC logo on it.... guess I'll have to wait until Sept before I make my purchase... :)
