South Dakota state geocoins

Recommended Posts

After many years of speculation, the South Dakota state geocoin is now a reality. For the past several years I have tried to get this project off the ground to no avail and had abandoned the idea. However, earlier in the year I went to work on some sketches and came up with some more ideas for the coin that would best represent the state of South Dakota. A friend of mine helped me out with the final graphics on his Mac and then I sent in the graphics to Oakcoins. This coin contains the state motto, slogan, shape of SD inset with 4 icons from the state. The black hills spruce, ringneck pheasant, walleye and the coyote are all depicted within the shape of the state in traditional geocaching colors. In the back ground of the state image is a really cool compass rose design. On the front is Mt.Rushmore in 3D with a waving American flag in the background. I also decided to include the year this coin was minted, as this is the first geocoin to represent the state. The tracking numbers are on the outer rim of the coin as not to detract from the artwork.

 

This coin can be purchased in 2 different metals. Antique Silver or Antique Gold. The Silver has the blue accents while the gold has the red accents. The cost is $10 per coin. I am now taking pre-orders for these coins until July 1st, 2012. The coins will then go to mint on July 2nd. I am hoping to have them back on time for the Geobash 5 event in mid August.

I sent you an email. We are taking our family vacation in the Black Hills starting next Friday, and these would be neat mementos.

 

Would you mind if I showed these on our local geocaching website down here in Louisiana?

Got your email and shot you a response. Glad you can make it out this way and have fun on your travels.

 

No problem on showing this to your local geocachers. I will be taking pre-orders till July 1st. When the coins come back from mint I will send out a paypal invoice and then ship them out. Hoping to keep shipping & handling to a minimum.

I grew up in Rapid City.

Please put me down for 1 Antique Silver coin.

Thanks.

I put your order down and will shoot you an email when they arrive. Also posted information on this forum for the Black Hills Geobash V. Maybe you can take a vacation and make it back out this way.

I'd love to have one of these. I'm currently living in South Dakota, so this would be a great memento for our time here. I will send you a message.

The South Dakota Geocoins arrived about 2 weeks ago, right before the Black Hills Geobash V event. Now that the event is over and the dust has settled, I will be getting in touch with people on getting these coins shipped out. Thanks :D

Now that the Black Hills Geobash V event is over, I still have plenty of coins left in my inventory in both metals. If anybody else out there is interested in an SD Geocoin or two, just contact me. :D

Hello, I was wondering if there are anymore available South Dakota geocoins available for purchase.

 

Thanks,
