20th Anniversary of Geocaching geocoin group project

20th Anniversary of Geocaching Group Project


On May 2nd at approximately midnight, the "big blue switch" was pressed and selective availability on civilian GPS receivers was removed. Twenty-four satellites around the globe processed new orders, and the accuracy of GPS technology improved tenfold. On May 3rd, Dave Ulmer placed a black bucket in the woods near Beavercreek, Oregon along with a logbook, pencil, and other various trade items - the first geocache. He shared the coordinates of his "stash" with an online community on sci.geo.satellite-nav and geocaching was born.


Fast-forward almost twenty years and there are now over three million active geocaches in 191 different countries and on all seven continents. On May 3rd, 2020 we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of that first cache placement.


Why not celebrate with your own geocoin? Get involved in a new Group Geocoin Project! The 20th Anniversary of Geocaching Geocoin is a multi-piece design that you can customize yourself. You can pick the finish of both pieces, different colours for each side of the main coin, and special features such as glitter enamel or glow-in-the-dark enamel. You can also get custom engraving to personalize your design even further.




Get in on the project for as little as $400.00 US for a batch of 50 personalized geocoins.


If interested, send an email to PHDGroupCoins@phdcoins.ca.
