+Vanelle Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 Mountains Calling is a coin series celebrating the things that many geocachers love. The the call of the outdoors, the natural world, the wonder of mathematics and structure in all living things. This coin is Blossom, and it has two sister-coins in the series (see other posts). The coin is a graphic representation of plum blossoms. The plum blossom is an early bloomer, often blooming when there is still snow on the ground, representing vitality and vigor, courage and strength. It is a reminder that spring will come. It is a celebration of life and endurance through hardship. This particular arrangement of the blossoms also references sashiko stitching, which is used in quilting (those of you who know me know I am also a quilter). The back of the coin hosts a quote by Muir "The mountains are calling and I must go" and the inlay pattern that I've been stitching into my quilts this past year (rocks, earth, spirals, sunrise/sunset). From sketchbook: To artwork To coin The coin is trackable on geocaching.com, is 1.25" in diameter and has a unique icon. I made 100 in satin gold and they will debut for sale at geocoinfest in 15 days. There is also a small run of artist edition in antique silver and black and white for trade only.
