Two Cache Geocoin

I love the Geoswag dollar geocoins and this is a nice addition to the series. The 2 dollar geocoin comes in bronze($8.27), copper and silver. To get the copper you need to buy the two coins set ($17.97) and to get the silver you need the three coin set ($30.77). Only 120 Antique silver and 220 Antique copper made. You will find these here.

NOT TAKE OUT - Geocoin 10 Grab

HogWild has a cool thing right now for those willing to take a chance. It's a ten coin mystery grab. Find this here for $51.00.

Coins to expect are:

- A 2007 Geocoinfest winners poker coin (not trackable)
- One Delorme Challenge Coin
- One Trackable coin that is not a Hogwild Stuff Coin
- One non-trackable Hogwild Stuff coin.
- All coins will be different - There will be a few boxes with one set of two finishes of the same coin, but only one of these.

In celebration of the first 7 digit waypoint, New Beginning has created these three fine geocoins. They are in a whole bunch of metals too which were minted in different
quantities. If you hurry you can get one of each, but some were at very
small numbers, so you better hurry. Prices for these range from $8-$12
for the LE versions. You can buy these from the website here.

Mint To Travel geocoins & GeoTags

Jake over at Coinswag has some new stock including these Mint To Travel geocoins. They are similar to Geoswags generic geocoins and come in a bunch of different metals. These are sold as a 5 pack ($27.50) or individually ($5.75) plus shipping. You can check these out here. Coinswag has also taken over the popular GeoTags project from Mike Atwell. For those who don't know about these, GeoTags are similar to the Geocoin Store's Pathtag project. Micro one-sided customizable coins, but GeoTags have real groundspeak tracking numbers... this is more expensive than pathtags, but more geocoin like. You can check out GeoTags here.

True Texas Cowboy Geocoin

This geocoin was brought to my attention by Semik a geocacher in Texas who's brother-in-laws life was cut short by a drunk driver. I can't tell the story nearly as well as she did in the email so I will put it in quotes.

"My brother-in-law's life was cut short by a drunk driver on I-35 in New Braunfels, TX on August 2, 2006. His interests were truly Texan in that he was a contractor who took on projects such as building barns and custom western themed construction projects, he had his own head of Longhorn cattle, was a foreman of a 5000 acre ranch, loved the Texas hill country and wildflowers, but he was also brilliant and could solve crossword and logic puzzles without ever setting a pen to paper. His small town funeral was a scene with hundreds of people showing up to show their respects for a man who had helped them when they were stranded on the road or built their cabin or served as their hunting guide. He rarely stayed in one place for long and that is why we created this coin: the True Texas Cowboy on the range, roaming from place to place encountering puzzles, magnificent views, historical places and adventure."

There are about 60 of these coins left and you can buy them for $10 each from Semik AKA Audra at: al_allen327@yahoo.com. My condolences for your loss, and thank you for the wonderful description.

Creacher 2007 Trackable Geocoin

Guardians of the Cache 4 geocoin set

You have heard of puzzle caches, but maybe not puzzle geocoins! This 4 coin set from Paula at Geocoindesigns for the Geocoinshop. Famous for the Wildlife Muggles, Paula has taken a similar theme with this set showing 4 little nasties that you may find around a geocache. When you turn these coins around you see the animals in their sneaky habitats. Put all four coins together and you get a nice country panorama. The set comes in gold, nickel and antique bronze for $30 a set plus shipping here.

Good/Bad Karma Geocoin

Karma AKA Dorkfish, a Boise, Idaho cacher that has some of the coolest personal coins (Cool for a dork anyway :P) Has her brand new store here. According to Karma she is going for quality over quantity, by only making coins that she would like to have in her collection. She has rolled out a new personal as well, Good/Bad Karma. Dorkfish kicks off the dorkfish persona and shows a sexier side in this new very personal personal. This one has a very cool hard enamel finish. The detail on this coin is amazing as well. You can get this coin for $7.50 in black nickel or $7.75 in glitter LE. Here. People who go to the site will be able to pick up a special treat as well, an 06 Original Dorkfish geocoin for $7.25!
