NEW COIN SET: The Canada Series

Recommended Posts

The Canada Series of geocoins will celebrate the 10 provinces and 3 territories that make up our great country in this our 150th year of confederation. Each coin in the series will fit together to form a map of Canada.

 

This project has been approved by Heritage Canada's Canada 150 Team and each coin will incorporate the Canada 150 logo. The series will also have the custom tracking code prefix 'EH'.

 

Nova Scotia geocachers Beaver Pelt and hirtle are the brains behind this huge project. They approached me a year ago, and after being sworn to secrecy I began work on the difficult design. Now, finally, I am able to break the silence and announce THE CANADA SERIES!

The first coin in the series covers the three maritime provinces -- Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick. These three provinces are each comparatively small but of huge importance to our nation. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were two of the first four provinces to join confederation, and Prince Edward Island played host to the first conference where the union was discussed.

 

This first coin is made up of four parts: the base, and the three provinces. Each provincial piece will have its own tracking number and its own unique icon -- so this is actually three geocoins in one! Each provincial piece is held on the base piece with a magnet. The base piece is shaped to show Canada's 200 nautical mile maritime limit.

I believe everyone who started collecting them has now ordered the complete set. 

 

But there are a number of complete sets still available or you can pick up an individual geocoin to represent your home province or to remember a great Canadian vacation!

 

Here are the Coasts and the Territories:
