Just a short comment about the Geowoodstock before I discuss Geocoins.....

 

Barbara I attended the Geowoodstock in Carnation, WA USA yesterday. It was a wonderful experience! It was amazing to see the demographic that Geoaches, young, not so young healthy, not so healthy. All you need to be is young at heart and the spirit of adventure.

 

The friendliness of Geocachers and the stories they tell is fantastic! True story...

 

I was eating lunch in large picnic table area that was set-up at Geowoodstock. I noticed a enthusiastic lady with the Arkansas Geocacher's Association ( I wish I could remember her name, she was wonderful) a few table away wearing Geowelry (trackable jewelry we design & sell). I went over to say hi and we introduced ourselves and took group pictures. I asked if she had purchased the Geowelry from us and she said no. She smiled and said she attended a Arkansas Geocacher Association event and during the raffle noticed a little boy won a pair of earrings. She then won a Geocache shaped like a piece of cow excrement. The Geocache container caught the eye of the little boy who really, really wanted it. A deal was struck and both parties were happy..... I had to laugh!

 

On to Geocoins.....!

 

The "Journey to the Center of the Earth Tribute" Geocoin is shaped like a book 51mm x 36.5". It has a "front cover", "spine", and "back cover". The Geocaching theme is depicted in this terrific Geocoin! The front of the Geocoin shows the intrepid explorers making their way through dangerous paths on their way to the center of the Earth. Danger lurks everywhere including giant snakes guarding Geocaching Treasure! The back of the Geocoin has the explorers rafting a thrilling underground river, with monster lizards poised to strike at our brave explorers! Will they survive the waterfall?! On the front of the coin on the bottom there are mysterious etched symbols . Can you figure out what it says? No hints will be given, but you will smile when you figure it out! The shape, detail, colors, and action make this Geocaching themed Geocoin a wonderful collectors item or send it on its own journey! Be the first to place this Geocoin at the center of the Earth (good luck.....!) Disclaimer, The Caching Place does not endorse hiking through the Earth's molten core .....!

 

The Geocoin is 51x36.5mm, 3.5mm thick, 2D on both sides, stamped bronze soft enamel without epoxy. The Geocoin has 12 colors on the front and 14 colors on the back. Engraved tracking code is on the back of the coin. It is packaged in a PVC pouch This coin is trackable. The "grey" areas will be black when the Geocoin is produced per the pantone chart.

 

For those of you that follow this, it is a "busy Geocoin".....

OOPS,

Just sent a reply to Jim before I read this thread.

Thought my New Topic email came in at 2:34PM, but it was 2:34AM.

So, rather late, although I did have the correct answer!!!

Anyway, LOVE this coin and wish I could add one to my collection.

Thanks for the great design and congrats to the winners!!!
