Can't Activate Geocoin

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I just purchased (in a marina of all places) a big cool "Poison Ivy" trackable geocoin that I'd like to send on it's way. It's stamped with a tracking number that was recognized by geocaching.com - but - it wants an activation code from coincodes.com and unfortunately that website appears to have gone extinct. I suppose I could always hook a dog tag on it but was hoping that wouldn't be necessary.

 

Is there another way to get it activated?

 

Thanks :)

I've had a lot of luck here: http://www.geocaching.com/track/ActivationCodeRetrieve.aspx

Thanks for your replies. I tried both links and been there done that before I posted. Trying to get an activation code comes back with -

 

Lost Activation Code

The manufacturer of this Trackable has requested that activation codes be retrieved from their web site.

Please click here to retrieve activation code.

 

And when I click here -> 404 Not Found

That's unfortunate. I have some unactivated "coincodes" coins, and I guess they'd be extra work to activate.

 

You could contact Geocaching.com:

In the request, select "Trackables", "Need Activation Code".

Thanks for the link - Geocaching HQ replied with an activation code. I think the tracking number and activation code are married for eternity if you can only find them.
