Liquidating my "Vintage" 2005 Geocoin Collection

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
Greetings fellow cachers. I started caching in 2004 and got into collecting geocoins shortly thereafter. I don't cache as much as I used to, and am done with collecting/trading, so I'm selling my geocoin collection of approximately 70 coins. The majority of coins are from 2005 (what I'm calling "vintage", lol), or around that year. I have no coins dating beyond 2006.

I have 25 unactivated coins with codes, 7 unactivated without codes, 18 activated coins (all purchased/owned by me and currently in my inventory) that are transferable, and 27 non-GC.com coins that are either non-trackable or were once trackable from another site. All coins are stored either in a hard plastic coin display case (with a neoprene ring cushion), a soft plastic coin pouch or poly ziplock bag. All are in excellent/new condition and have been stored in a dry, non-smoking environment. 

Here is a breakdown of my inventory...

Unactivated with code supplied:
3 sets - 2005, Connecticut/One Thousand Caches, set of three coins (polished gold, polished silver, and bronze), (in individual soft plastic pouches)

I've been trying to estimate a value for the coins, but this is proving difficult as most can't even be found on eBay. I do know that some are extremely rare and sought after - especially limited editions, matching sets that come in gold/silver/bronze, or that come with Certificates of Authenticity.

I'll be listing these individually and as sets on eBay in the coming days. In order to sell these as quickly as possible I'll be keeping my prices well below all other similar items. If anyone here would like to purchase some or all of these beforehand, I am open to all fair and reasonable offers. Photos can be emailed upon request. Feel free to message me with any questions.


Thanks and happy caching,
Mark from Team Hatfield
