FOund coin-no code, can't find by name

Recommended Posts

I must admit I am new to this and the answer maybe rather simple. I found a geocoin today in a cache.It is not listed in the cache's inventory. I tried looking it up by name- no luck. I want to do the right thing and log the coin, but can not find the info. NO ID #s or anything.

To be a proper geocoin it must say "Trackable on Geocaching.com" or something close to that effect. You may have stumbled on a personal coin or token which is swag.

How did you decide what the coin name is? Can you post a picture of it or at least a description? Did you state in your log that you found a coin and that you don't know if it's a Geocoin? Somecacher may read the logs and respond.

 

Don't post a picture of a 6-digit number (no photos of Tracking Numbers, please, which may look like this number on an example TB in the GC Shop). Otherwise a photo of the coin would help identify it. As mentioned, tracking numbers can be around the edge of a Geocoin.

 

An actual Geocoin may not have text to "...log this at Geocaching...".

 

If the coin has a Geocacher name, and especially if that cacher found that cache, you could contact that cacher. It might be a signature item, and it's common to trade for those, with no particular tracking.

 

[EDIT}: Did you figure it out? You logged a Geocoin yesterday.

Kunarion called this "coin" on the money (pun intended).  :)

Simply a signature wooden nickel trade item or swag,  that was called  a "geocoin" by the owner, but has no tracking code.

What you do next is keep it if you'd like,  or pass it on as swag.

Thanks and thank you for the info. I think I'll keep it for a while and maybe pass it on later.
