How do you find out how many coins were made?

Recommended Posts

...how many of a certain coin was made?

 

You may contact the designer or producer of each geocoin, they will know.

 

PS: On average I minted around 300 of those that I designed.

1. Go to the GC trackables search page: www.geocaching.com/track/default.aspx

 

2. Enter a name (e.g. "Tengwar")

 

3. You get a search result list. This will only have the activated coins, and in this case there are a number of different mintings. I'm going to look for the red icon version.

 

4. Chose a trackable from the list (say 'Ann's Tengwar Geocoin').

 

5. Click on its owner (Bellas Pack) and show the Trackables tab in the profile.

 

6. Click on the Tengwar icon in the Owned column. You are now on their list of Tengwar coins (just one).

 

7. Take the URL (www.geocaching.com/track/search.aspx?tx=...&o=1&uid=...) and shorten it from the end to the first "&" character (e.g. erase 'o=1&uid=...').

 

8. Surf to this new link and you have the total number of Tengwar geocoins ever minted (1,754)

Note that this shows the number of codes assigned to the coin run. Not all the codes might be used so it is possible that there are in fact less coins that indicated. For example the link below shows 316 codes while there were only 300 conins made and since there will be no remint 16 codes will stay unused.

that will only tell you the total number of codes registered for the credit card coins

 

it won't break it down by color or finish

for that, "contact the maker" is the best bet

 

an extreme example of this is the "CC Geocoins"

that particular name includes eight different geocoins

August 2005 thru March 2006

 

it all depends on how the coin maker does things

 

it goes the other way, too

the "pocket decoder" items have three lines - one for each finish
