GeocacheAlaska! 2015 geocoins available

Recommended Posts

For those who have followed our long history of creating an annual trackable geocoin specific to geocaching in Alaska, we still have quite a few of our 2015 Eagle geocoins left to sell. The 2015 coin features an Eagle on both sides in full color enamel fill and was created with three different metal finishes; shiny gold, shiny silver, and black nickel. The designs were created by Chris Mackey. Each trackable 2-inch coin is paired with a trackable anodized aluminum proxy coin, so you can retain the original coin safely in your collection and release the proxy coin to travel.

 

GeocacheAlaska! Inc. is the non-profit geocaching organization in the state of Alaska. We strive to promote geocaching throughout the Last Frontier with education, land manager advocacy, and geocaching event sponsorship. Our staff and membership are volunteers with all proceeds from our coin sales going directly into promotion of geocaching.

 

You can view the details on our current and all past coin projects on our website at http://www.geocachealaska.org/alaskageocoins.htm. From that page is a link to our online store where the coins are available for purchase.

 

Thanks for your time. Have a happy new year!

 

On behalf of GeocacheAlaska! Board of Directors

Forgot to include in my post that the total mintage is 500, 1/3 silver, 1/3 gold, 1/3 black nickel. 500 isn't divisible by three, but I don't know which of the three finishes was cast only 166 times. :blink:
