The obverse of the geocoin features an adult and a young orca cavorting in the waves at sunset.  The reverse of the coin is based upon the design used for the Alaskan geocoins produced in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012. It features a Sourdough cacher using a modern GPS to locate his traditional food cache in the shadow of Denali (Mt. McKinley), the tallest peak in North America with an elevation of 20,320 feet (6195 m).

 

The geocoins are 38 mm in diameter, 4 mm thick, and feature a multi-color enamel obverse, including translucent blue for the ocean and glitter in the splashes,  and a deep 3D reverse. The geocoins are trackable on geocaching.com and have a matching custom icon. 6144.gif6144.gif

 

150 of each of the shiny gold and shiny nickel geocoins were minted on the first run. Depending on demand, up to one hundred more of each finish will be produced. The geocoins cost $10 each plus postage and packaging.

 

GeocacheAlaska! is a 501©(3) non-profit education organization. We price our products to earn a modest profit to help underwrite expenses incurred in meeting the organization's goals. Expenses for PayPal fees, packaging, postage, and insurance are charged at as close to our cost as possible within the constraints of the PayPal shipping calculator. For our overseas customers, we feel your pain regarding international postage rates which have quadrupled since 2010 for packages weighing less than an ounce from $1.44 to $6.55 and more than doubled for heavier packages.

We're down to twenty gold and thirty nickel 2013 Orca geocoins and have decided we won't be minting any more, freezing production at 150 of each finish.

 

Thanks, everyone, for supporting yet another Alaskan project.
