Hi there,


Welcome to geocaching, geocoins and the forums. :)


For a quick primer see the links in my signature below. You should also read some of the knowledge base documents on the main geocaching.com site to familiarise yourself with the guidelines of geocaching and trackable items. If you go to the front page of geocaching.com there is a link for Trackables under the Play menu.


Good luck.

Your type of log will be "Grab It" if you actually picked up the coin.



I think this depends...


...If you picked up the coin FROM a geocache, then you would select "Retrieved from __geocache name here___"


...If you picked up the coin from another person, or found it in another cache altogether, then "Grab it" would be better. There are also other things you can do to make sure the coin's mileage is correct, but those options are best saved if/when you really need them.


After you type in the tracking number and the coin's page appears, it should tell you "where" the coin is in the "Recently spotted" section. If the coin is in a geocache, the geocache's name will be listed here. This is definitely the easiest route!
