__Daoine Síth Geocoin

My husband gave me our first geocoin as a birthdaygift. But he didn't just give me 1, no, he made 6 versions!!!

The design is by his own sister, she designed the little elf especially for me.

The name of the coin is 'Daoine Síth' (pronounced as deena shee).

In Irish mythology, the aos sí, older form aes sídhe are a supernatural race comparable to the fairies or elves. They are said to live underground in the fairy mounds, across the western sea, or in an invisible world that coexists with the world of humans. This world is described in "The Book of Invasions" (recorded in the Book of Leinster) as a parallel universe in which the aos sí walk amongst the living.
In the Irish language, aos sí means "people of the mounds" (the mounds are known in Irish as "the sídhe". In Irish literature the people of the mounds are also referred to as the daoine sídhe ("deena shee", and in Scottish Gaelic literature as the daoine sìth or daoine sìdh. They are said to be the ancestors, spirits of nature, or goddesses and gods.

The 6 versions are:

All versions are limited to 50 coins, no remint.
Has its own icon.
