"t" Coin?

Recommended Posts

I found a "T" coin in a cache and don't know whether or not to log it. It does have a number. Does anyone know about "T" coins?

Yes, there are some people who make "Geocoins" and they are tracked like TB's through gc.com. I think the reference to them is on the TB page at gc.com. :unsure:

This object is not a true geocoin per se. It is a large aluminum disc 2 1/2 inches in diameter that has a T punched through it with the word coin stamped next to the t, with a number stamped below.

I am thinking it was placed with the intent that it may be somehow tracked but I cannot find any reference to it in any searches.

If I could somehow log it I would like to do so...any ideas!?

you could try typing the tracking number on the Travel Bug page (http://www.geocaching.com/track/) next to the picture of the TB dog tag and see if there's a page for it. Some cachers opt not to use the TB dog tags with their bugs for some reason or another but it may still be a TB. Try it out and tell us if it works.

Back in March, someone found a Tcoin in Washington State and asked a similar question. No answer was reported at that time. The question continues to haunt me.

sounds like a cool signature item to me. Do you have a picture? (I know that Fisur is going to Markwell me on that one :unsure: )

I can't seem to find the picture that was once posted of the Tcoin. However, there is a geocacher named TCoin who has been known to leave Tcoins. Evidently it's a signature item. If the coins are trackable in some way, TCoin would know.

Thank you to all for your assistance! It seems that the conclusion is that it is a sig item of TCoin's..it was found in a Washington cache and it *is* very cool.

I will contact TCoin and ask if there is a tracking system indeed...glad to have it and although I am on a dialup connection this weekend in a hotel, I will get a picture uploaded to my gallery page (which is currently empty!) so people can check it out.

In the meantime, happy caching to all and I need to come up with a sig item of my own.
