+fox-and-the-hound Posted October 17, 2012 Share Posted October 17, 2012 A few managed a sneak peek at GCF in Colorado of this new design, but I wanted to share it here and say thanks to those who pre-ordered on the spot after checking out the samples! For over 3 millenia people around the world have been knocking on wood to ward off bad luck, but almost nobody recalls why! While working on an upcoming coin design I ran across an odd bit of info that sent me off in a new direction with curiosity and excitement. Sure, enough there's a great story there and it's very important to geocachers, too! This new coin celebrates the legend of the Waldgeist (pronounced "vawld-guy-st") known by many names and revered as the Lord of the Forest, Greenman, Wildman, Savage Man, Woodwose, Green Jack, Jack-in-the-Green, Green George, Pan, Wakatcuna, Wakaitcu, Kodama and Canotila depending on the people and continent. All around the world this woodland spirit is the protector of nature and the punisher of those who abuse it. The specs: SPECS & FEATURES: 1.75" Diameter x 7mm Thickness (designed for 7, but calipers are showing almost 9mm actually) 3 Molds Used for the most extreme 3D 16 Soft Enamels (3 Translucents) Two-tone Metal Antique Finish Trackable at Geocaching.com Custom Icon 3 Finishes Available: 1) Antique Silver on Antique Gold 2) Antique Silver on Shiny Gold 3) Antique Silver on Antique Copper GxProxy was kind enough to produce this design and has even matched up a Proxy coin for each one and paid to even print a full color brochure with the original mint art and full story behind all the elements, secret meanings and intricacies of the design. Thanks to all the kind responses and for those who placed preorders at GCF, they're shipping out this morning and the two new finishes look awesome! I'll post some more pics shortly Quote Link to comment
