x- (x={Czech, Slovak, Polish, German, Austrian, ...}) Wood Geocoins (xWGs) are non-trackable sigitems, despite the confusing name "geocoin". They were created a few years back to improve quality of trade items, and they evolved into an obsession for many Czech cachers. The Wood Geocoin is a small (diameter 35mm and thickness 7mm) wood knot with laser-burnt geocacher's or team's or event's logo; on the back side id the Geocaching logo (used with permission from Groundspeak). People collect them, trade them, there are xWG exhibitions, etc.

When you find one in a cache you should trade it, ideally for your own or any other xWG. If you don't have any you should put to the cache another item of the same or higher value. To give you an idea, the exchange value of one CWG is usualy 10CZK (e.g. 0.35 EUR).

Some CWGs are really nice.
