MWGB Geocons at Hogwild

Hogwild has a bunch of t-shirt geocoins for this event. These are similar to the ones from GeowoodstockV ($8.00). There is also a round coin that was designed by Jamie of MadHattersNeverland called "Nickel Hyde Midwest Geobash Coin" ($8.10). Hyde appears to be a cartoon character that will appear from time to time like Signal I guess.

There is also something called "The Midwest Geobash Experience Package" Registered attendees received these. It includes a yellow string bag and 3 pins from Oakcoins. These ones include two of the above mentioned Hyde geocoins (One of each finish). ($20)
All of this goodness is available here.

Cacher Tag Micro Traveler Geocoins

It looks like tags are now a type of geocoin. Here is one from Castleman that will be coming out tonight on his site here. These are sold in the colors pictured and as a set for $16.49. They are trackable!

Another chance at the Earth Turtle

For those who missed out on the Earth Turtles over at The Caching Place, you get another chance there is a presale here for a new shiny silver version with translucents and glitter. This presale lasts until this Sunday 7/29 9:00pm MST. Preorder it here for $8.75.

Big sale and new coins at the Geocoin Store

The store has been quiet for a while, apparently minting a bunch of geocoins! Here is what's new:

- MWGB 2007 Poker Marker Geocoin
- Atlanta Gal's Anniversary Slot Machine
- The Pathtag Sherpa Geocoin
- The Go 4x4 It Jeep Themed Coin

Along with the new coins are a bunch of sails. Most coins are cut 33%. The Christmas coins are now $2. An excellent price for a Chris Mackey coin (Remember there is the miles challenge on these too: The Chris coin with the most miles by thanksgiving gets the treasure chest of geocoins!)

Cache Rewards Geocoins

*Update* The price of these has been slashed from $5.25 to $5.50 for the LEs!

These are very nice looking geocoins and they are meant to reward a cache owner for creating a very cool geocache. These come in several metals (Gold, Nickel, and antique bronze and silver) and have a variety of phrases like "Amazing View" and "Great Container." Unlike reward coins in the past, these are trackable with icon. Get these here for $7.25.

Back Says:
"This coin is meant to be placed in a cache that deserves recognition for the quality shown on the front. Please move it to a cache that you feel deserves it."

Coin Stats:
1-1/2'' 38mm x 3.0mm

Moun10Like Geocoin

This one is a little strange. It is apparently a presale tribute geocoin for Moun10Bike, the cacher who had the very first geocoin. The weird part is that Moun10Bike goes to great lengths to make sure that his geocoins are not sold. It seems ironic that a tribute coin would be sold. This is a nice looking coin that looks a little like the original geocoin and says "Thank you Moun10Bike!". You can put in your order here for $9.49 plus $2 shipping.

Northern Right Whale Geocoin

This is a great looking coin for a good cause. The Right Whale was hunted to near extinction and in some areas the numbers continue to decline. A portion from the sail of this geocoin goes to the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies. I love the look of this coin which was designed by Jamie at MadHattersNeverland. There is also a matching pin. You can pick this coin $7.75 and a LE $8.25 up here at Dorkfish coins.

GeoQuahog Geocoins

[D]22 is taking preorders on a nice coin that comes in bronze or nickel for $24.95, or Sterling Silver for $64.95 . Much like the Tiki Coins, the casts are hand made and there are very few made. The Quahog is a shellfish (The State Shellfish of Rhode Island) that was used for Wampum (money). There are not trackable, but very very cool and available here.

New library of designs over at the Neverland

*Update* Yes, Jamie aka: James is a he. Honest mistake, emails bogging down google servers ;)

Not to be confused with the Neverland Ranch (Creepy) Jamie's madhattersneverland has been creating cool geocoin designs for a long time now. He was kind enough to drop me a line to say that you can now see them in a cool way on her site here. That is a LOT of coins! Thanks for sharing Jamie!

British Columbia 2007 geocoin

This nice BC coin is now available at landsharkz. The coin is $9 Canadian and available here in antique silver. Landsharkz provided me with this cool background on the imagery of the coin:

"The animal depicted on this year’s coin is the cougar, resident of Vancouver Island. The trestle featured on the coin is the Kinsol Trestle in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. This trestle is on a beautiful section of the Trans Canada Trail.

Completed in 1920 and with a length of 614 feet, it is the longest trestle in the British Commonwealth. It remains an outstanding example of a time when there was no project too grand, or scheme too bold for us to achieve with hard work and innovation.

This lovely trestle has deteriorated so significantly that it cannot be used for any purpose. It is a missing link in the Trans Canada Trail. Studies are being conducted to determine if it can be restored for recreational use rather demolished and replaced with a new footbridge."

Cool! I love that stuff! Thanks Edley for the info!

vigps mtn-man Event Coin

Ok mtn-man, a gc.com cache approver well known for his admin brick geocoins dropped by the vigps event. They were so excited that they minted a special coin. The good news is that everyone who goes to the event got a free coin, the other news is that the remaining coins will be sold on the ol'ebay :(. Oh well, at least you will get a shot at these :) It is an effort to recoup the costs and that's easy to understand. This coin is available now on ebay. (Note that it is not trackable). Thanks for the info Jessica!!

American Cacher Geocoin

It looks like a new swag dealer is jumping in the ring. American Cacher looks to provide geocachers with some trail treats and swaggy swag goodness. One of their first offerings will be this geocoin. The store opens July 3 so it makes sense that they would have a nice patriotic USA coin. You will be able to pick this up here Tuesday. Price: $8.50.

Belize Toucan Geocoin

tsunrisebey was kind enough to let me know that her new coin is up for reservations. As you can see it's a Belize Keel-Billed Toucan, the National Bird of Belize. It feeds by snipping off the fruit and flipping its head back to gulp the fruit... now we are all a little smarter :) No pictures yet of this coin but it is sure to be a beauty. Black Nickel is the regular edition but there is an LE. Problem is they are all spoken for, but you can ask to put your name on a waiting list for one.
