10 year coins

Recommended Posts

I went to one of the ten year events and picked up a Manitoba 10 year geocoin, since I liked it so much I bought a second one. I don't really have many geocoins, so getting a second one isn't normal. A fellow cacher had an extra and they owed me a little cash so we settled the $10 tab with one more Manitoba coin. I thought the third coin I could trade for a different geocoin.

 

Anyway, I thought I would have a look and see what these 10 year coins are going for on e-bay and I was blown away that the coins are going for anywhere from about $25 to a Manitoba coin going for $90!

 

I guess collectors are wanting to have the whole set? Any idea of the mint run of each of the different 10 year coins? Do some of the coins have a smaller mint run than others?

 

Thanks

Most of the coin-edition had an amount of 100 coins minted. Some had a little more. The coins that were sold by the coinshops had runs of 200 coins (or more?).

And some of the 100 minted were shared between events so they sold out fast! I did the Iowa one and I am down to the one in my collection and 1 to be given as a prize at the event I have coming up. The rest were sold that weekend with the exception of 2 I sold on eBay.
