My Geocoins


Geocoins have become the super-hot thing for geocaching lately. I've had some coin ideas in my head and decided to go ahead and make some of the coins. One of my coins will be limited to trades for signature coins and other coins I might like and will not be for sale. The other one will be sold, but I am getting some for trades.

For the first coin I decided to do a Five Year Anniversary Geocoin. It is also a celebration of my goal to find a geocache in the 48 contiguous United States and eventually all 50 states. I have also found many caches in the District of Columbia.


It was a run of 300 coins. It is 24k gold plated and filled with one color on one side and three on the other. The recessed background will be a stippled gold look to make the polished gold in the states, the geocaching.com logos and the text look even more prevalent.



I hope to trade signature coins for the most part. I will trade by mail of course. I will be leaving a few in caches here and there too.



I hope you like the gold coin.

It was fun to make.

The second coin was also a lot of fun to create. The "admin brick" idea has been around for quite a long time. I have had a secret hidden web page on my site for a few years now. I have made it public.

Over time we have joked about it among the reviewers and moderators for the forums. When I saw how some coins were custom cut, I got the idea for the Admin Brick Geocoin. After working hard with the folks at www.geocoinstore.com, we now have a finished admin brick.



I guess I underestimated how popular the admin brick would be. Thanks to you all for your great reception of the admin brick.

I went ahead and did a second version of the admin brick. The second one was a tribute to my good friend Keystone.
