Geocaching.cz - a genuine geocoin?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Found this wooden geocoin today. It has a code on it, "jbelu" - and the web address "geocaching.cz"... I've tried entering the code into the trackables page here on Geocaching.com but it isn't recognised... is this coin real? Or is it from some rival website and nothing to do with 'real' Geocaching?

If it's genuine (it has real-looking logo on the reverse), can anyone tell me how to track/log it? It wasn't in the geocache's online inventory.

 

Thanks

Andy

This is a non-trackable wooden token from the Czech Republic - generally personalized with a geo-nick

 

Wooden tokens are very popular all throughout Europe

Also called a signature item. The 'jbelu' is the caching name of a cacher in the Czech Republic.

 

One site in the CZ sells a huge variety of wood coins, various woods - http://www.geocoin-land.com/

 

As Pastor B said, they are hugely popular in Europe.

Yup. There are commonly called XWG where X stands for country, e.g. CWG = Czech wooden geocoin, PWG = Polish wooden geocoin and so on. They are generally not trackable, however some of them are! But to be trackable they should bear the text "track at geocaching.com" somewhere as well as the code. For the non-trackable ones treat them as swag items of about half a dollar exchange value.

Ah! OK great, thanks all for the clarification. I will send it on its merry way never to be seen again then :)
