11/11/11 Geocoins

Recommended Posts

Last year for 10/10/10, there were geocoins developped to honour the momentous date, with regional colour schemes and were available for bulk ordering. Something similar happened on 09/09/09.

I'm just wondering if there are any plans for an 11/11/11 geocoin this year? I'm not sure how the coins were produced in previous years or who was in charge of organizing the colour schemes and distribution. Was this a Groundspeak initiative, or did regional caching associations take the task on themselves? (Is there a forum already for this topic?)

 

So, as you can tell, I have lots of questions on the matter! :) Any information about the development of these coins would be greatly helpful!

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

Merci d'avance!

Someone is already planning their own 11-11-11 suncatcher geocoin, and avroair stated in that thread that he is working on the offical 11/11/11 Events geocoin.

 

There was a discussion, again from avroair, about how the Masquerade Events geocoins came about (who was invited to join, etc) and I suspect it is a similar process for the 11/11/11 events...

Yes. I will be doing the 11 11 11 multi-event coin. This is the same project that Manitoba (Junglehair) did for 10-10-10.

 

Any information about the development of these coins would be greatly helpful!

There is a thread discussing the 11-11-11 multi event coin here: Eleven

 

This will probably start initial design in June --- usually the design artwork is posted and tweaked. Then a 'color by numbers' version is produced for event hosts to express themselves. The orders are collected in a Google docs and then minted.
