Geowoodstock 3 Geocoins

Recommended Posts

I noticed that Jeremy said in another thread that the Geowoodstock 3 coins are being added as a "new type". Does this mean they're going to have a unique icon? If so, is there a mock up of it anywhere?

That doesn't answer any of the questions I asked. I mean the icon on the website.

I asked the same question last week here and have yet to hear anything about these coins or the German Coins. I don't think this is too hard to create a different icon for the different trackables but an answer would be nice.

Apologies, I misunderstood your question. I thought you wanted to see what the coin would look like.

 

No it won't have a separate icon as far as I understand, it will use the regular geocoin icon on your profile. If I am wrong, someone please correct me.

 

As for the German Geocoin, I have no idea. Have you tried contact at geocaching.com?

The German coin is using the same icon right now. My question is can we change it? Everything else has a unique icon, i dont think there will be that many items coming along to have this done. Lets add a little something to make it different. It shouldn't be that hard.

I think there will probably be lots of coins soon that are trackable on gc.com, and adding an icon for each would get pretty complicated (IIRC, there was a minimum of 200 for an order, which isn't that many...)

I agree that not every coin should have its own icon, even if it is trackable on the gc.com site. Somehow I got the impression that the GW3 coins were going to have one, and it seemed believable.

 

By the way, I do really like the design of the GW3 coins. Are there any scans of an actual coin yet, or do I have to wait until the event. ;)

There will be a minor change made but this is basically it:

What are the criteria that Groundspeak uses to decide which coins are trackable?

I believe it is around $1.50-$2 per coin.

That's a lot of money to know who's collection it ends up in.

And thats only if its activated otherwise noone still will know where the coin is. I know i don't activate mine.

Doc-Dean, that's probably the best looking coin I've seen. I can't wait to get mine! Thanks for posting the picture.

Is that state outline correct? or is that ballon thing on the upper right corner a mistake?? B)

Geez, everybody's a critic...

 

It's clearly the entrance to Groundspeak HQ. Camoed well like anything else dealing with geocaching should be.

No really nice coin and can't believe I missed ordering some...oh well...I like trading better anyway.

Thanks for the compliment I spent a lot of time designing them. I just hope they look as good in person. :blink:B)

Welch, the original poster for the original Woodstock music festival in 1969 had a guitar neck with that bird perched on it. That's why the bird is on the top of Florida.

 

I agree that is the best looking coin I've seen! Good job, StressMaster! :D I wish I had ordered one.

I was kind of wondering what the bird was for, too. Thanks for explaining that. Here's a picture I found of the poster.

Thank you explaining, I had thought maybe Nurse Dave was joking :grin:

So are there still some of these coins available? I am from Florida and would love to have a geocoin from there.

Since they were pre-ordered, if you didn't get in on it, they are going to be harder to come by.

 

But not impossible. They will be giving some away as prizes at GeoWoodstock3. I don't know if they will have any for sale.

Just learned that the Geowoodstock3 Geocoins will have thier own separate icon on the user stat page. I haven't seen it since none of the GW3 geocoins have been registered yet. Guess we'll have to wait another 15 days...
