Will there be one? Just curious.

We haven't heard anything official from HQ yet, but there has been a souvenir for every International Geocaching Day since its inception in 2011, so I fully expect there will be one for this year too.

I just received the email. Do you purchase this souvenir after finding a cache? Wasn't sure how this works.

 You earn the souvenirs. They are free digital rewards if you complete the requirement. Easy peasy!

Just like the Hidden Creatures souvenirs you earned this past month (I checked your profile). The Intl Geocaching Day souvenir only requires ONE log, though!

Thank you-I understand now.  The coin is so pretty, though. I was hoping I could buy a real one. : )  But...I was hoping for a real Kraken, too. Guess I will have to settle for virtual. : )

You can buy a coin if you want. I just saw them on Shop Geocaching.

That's weird.  Of four on that cache yesterday, only one has the souvenir.

Seattle has been awake for some time now, but still no souvenir on your profile. Will you let us know when it arrives?

Did you submit your log via the app or via the website?  And what time of day did you submit it?

I'm wondering if this is a time zone problem, especially if submitting via the app - which seems to set the log timestamp even further back than if submitting via the website.

 

My suggestion would be to copy your log text, delete your log, then re-log a Found for that cache via the website (where you can set the 'date logged' to 8/18).  That should get you your souvenir.

I got mine when I logged a mega on Saturday.  (And, oddly, two different souvenirs for the same mega event - same icon, different description.)

That is odd.  Two identical image souvenirs for attending a single Mega-event.
