Zero Milestone Benchmark (2009):
Located not far from the Southside of the Whitehouse and in the northern portion of the Ellipse is the Zero Milestone Benchmark. Sadly most people don't pay attention to the monument since they are more interested in taking photos of the Whitehouse. However, this monument has some of the most significant history in America.

Dedicated on June 4th, 1923, the Zero Milestone Benchmark was the point that all roads are measured from in the United States. Its purpose is similar to a same monument the Romans used when creating a road system to connect all of their territories. The Romans understood that without good roads, economical transportation is not possible.

The front of the coin is of the bronze compass rose design that rests on top of the granite stone monument. The backside of the coin has the names of the two convoy missions which started from the monument and traversed the U.S. to publicize the Good Roads Movement.

Year of the Tiger (2010):


The Year of the Tiger coin celebrates the Metal Tiger of 2010 (running from February 14 to February 2, 2011). Since the type of Tiger this year is metal, the actual Tiger image in the center is represented in the base plating of the coin. Specific metals associated with the tiger are gold and silver, accounting for two of the RE platings, with the copper plating being the "odd tiger out". The Chinese characters on the front of the coin are the heavenly stem and earthly branch of this year's tiger: the /geng/ (evening star) and the /yin/ (tiger).
The tiger is adapted from a photo by HKCpedia (a photographer who has contributed work to Wikipedia Commons*, from which the photograph was sourced) and depicts the tiger sculpture from a Chinese Zodiac statue series in Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City Park in China. The tiger watches over an ammo can against a backdrop of five lucky geocoins. Five is one of the luckier numbers in the Chinese lucky/unlucky number system, associated with the five elements (wood, water, fire, metal and earth) and thus tying geocaching into a global, holistic activity, and implying that geocaching is a "kingly" pursuit (as the number 5 is also historically linked with the Emperor of China). The front of the coin is rounded out with tiger stripes in the outer background.

As per Wikipedia (link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_zodiac), persons born in a Tiger year are "Unpredictable, rebellious, colorful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, humanitarian, generous. Can be restless, reckless, impatient, quick-tempered, obstinate, selfish, aggressive, unpredictable." Accordingly, the back of the coin features the Chinese character for "Dare", and in the spirit of daring exhorts the cacher to "discover...explore...pursue". The pattern behind the "dare" character is an extremely stylized version of a star, representing this year's heavenly stem, and bears an extremely passing resemblance to a tiger's face and its stripes.

Year of the Ox (2008):


Coin Name: Year of the Ox
Size: 1.75" or 45mm
Editions: gold, silver, copper and AE (two-tone)
Designed By: Jackalgirl
Artwork By: Jackalgirl
Produced By: Atwell Family
Special Features: 3D Ox, multiple layers

Icon:
Description: The coin is done in gold with red enamel - red and gold are considered very lucky colors in China, especially red, which is associated with blood (and therefore, life). The front side features a frame held up by four butterflies. In ancient Chinese maps, south was placed at the top, where the hole is located. At the bottom is the symbol for "north", and to the left and right, respectively, are "east" and "west". Eight Chinese flower motifs fill in the compass under the enamel: 2009 is an "Earth Ox" year, and the flowers symbolize the earth. Under the ox -- the new year's symbol -- there are thirteen coins, a lucky number and one included for safety on the hunt (as well as success in finding geocoins). The back features a classic version of the Chinese symbol for "eternity" and lucky clouds as a recessed design under the transparent red enamel.

Ribbons of color to shape a globe, a compass rose flashing with glow-in-the-dark lightning bolts, a sparkly rhinestone "bling" in the center - all of this and more is found in the official WWFM V Geocoin, available for a limited time.

The concept of the Geocaching World Wide Flash Mob, created by Sonny and Sandy of the PodCacher Podcast (podcacher.com) is simple: dozens if not hundreds of geocachers briefly gather for an event, all on the same day. At a precise time they come together, have a group meal (chocolate kisses), take a group photo, maybe do something silly and then disperse, vanishing with the wind. Typically the whole thing happens in a flash, in 15 minutes or less!

On May 2nd, the 5th WWFM will happen all around the world - and this is only the second time that a WWFM Geocoin has been created. Perfect for event giveaways, volunteer thank-you's, to send traveling the globe or to keep as a special memento. Get yours today, they'll be gone in a Flash!!!

WWFM III (2008):
The concept of the Geocaching World Wide Flash Mob, created by Sonny and Sandy of the PodCacher Podcast (podcacher.com) is simple: dozens if not hundreds of geocachers briefly come together for an event on 10 May 2008, all on the same day, all around the world at numerious locations. At a precise time they come together, have a group meal (chocolate kisses), take a group photo, maybe do something silly and then disperse, vanishing with the wind. Typically the whole thing happens in a flash, in 15 minutes or less!  The WWFM III GeoCoin was created to commemorate this world wide geocaching event. The coin represents the old school wild days you might remember from the 60s and 70s, and the cool stuff people would wear when they got together to hang. Flashy colors all over the place, this is totally psychedelic man! The lightning bolts even glow in the dark. Then there is the big gold chain, two-tone platings, and best of all, it is studded with 32 gemstones. Just groovy baby!

Rosa Parks - Women of Distinction

Rosa Parks Geocoin
Women of Distinction Series - Introductory Coin

This coin introduces our “Women of Distinction” series by celebrating a true pioneer of our time.  Not only does it honor Rosa Park’s accomplishments but also celebrates Black history month.  This coin is done primary in black and white with an antique silver finish.  The front photograph of the coin depicts Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat to a white person, while the back of the coin is an representation of the actual sign that hung on the bus.

On December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James Blake’s order that she give up her seat to make room for a white passenger.  Her action sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Parks’s act of defiance became an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement and Parks became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation. She organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including boycott leader Martin Luther King Jr., helping to launch him to national prominence in the civil rights movement.

Parks eventually received many honors ranging from the 1979 Springarm Medal to the Congressional Gold Medal, a posthumous statue in the United States Capitol’s National Statuary Hall, and the posthumous honor of lying in honor at the Capitol Rotunda.

Windis Königlich-Bayrische Stammtisch Geocoin (2009):
Als Urbayer und Münchner hatte Windi die schöne Idee, dem ehemals bayerischen König Ludwig II. Otto Friedrich Wilhelm von Bayern (* 25. August 1845 in München, Schloss Nymphenburg; † 13. Juni 1886 im Würmsee) anlässlich des 5jährigen Bestehens des Geocaching Stammtisches in München eine Coin zu widmen.

So wurden Sepp & Berta mit dem Design beauftragt. Es sollte eine königlich-bayerische Coin werden mit Ornamenten, den Löwen (in 3d) sowie auf der Rückseite eine Tafel mit Krone, auf der Windis königlich bayerischer Stammtisch in München verewigt wurde. Die allererste Auflage gab es nur über den Stammtisch selbst und aufgrund der vielen Nachfragen, die bei Windi eingingen, kam es zu dieser Nachproduktion, u.a. mit neuen Metalleditionen. Wir freuen uns, dass wir eine eigenen Sepp & Berta Edition bekommen haben, nämlich die 2-tone antik kupfer und silber!

Willem van Oranje (2009):


Willem van Oranje (William of Orange, a.k.a. William the Silent) was born in the House of Nassau as a count of Nassau-Dillenburg. He became Prince of Orange in 1544 and is thereby the founder of the branch House of Orange-Nassau. He was the main leader of the Dutch revolt against the Spanish that set off the Eighty Years' War and resulted in the formal independence of the United Provinces in 1648. In the Netherlands, he is also known as the Vader des Vaderlands, "Father of the Fatherland", and the Dutch national anthem, Het Wilhelmus was written in his honour.
The front of this coin is a copy of the first Dutch coin which was minted in 1583. It shows the portrait of William of Orange and the motto Vigilate Deo Confidentes, which means 'Guard, trusting in God'. The backside of this coin has one of William most important statements written on it: “Ik kan niet goedkeuren dat vorsten over het geweten van hun onderdanen willen heersen en hun de vrijheid van geloof ontnemen” which translated means "I can not approve that monarchs want to rule over the conscience of their people and take away their freedom of religion"



Will You Marry Me? (2007):
This coin was made as part of my proposal to my girlfriend. Here is the story as I posted it Sept. 15th, 2007......
Today was a beautiful day and a very special day for myself and my girlfriend Hulalavacachegirl. Today I asked her to marry me at the Lord of the Rings Cache and she said.....YES!!
My plan started a little over a month ago. I had the idea to make a geocoin with a silouette of a couple kissing; the word "Love" in all different languages encircling the outer edge of the coin and the words "Will you marry me" on one side of the coin. The opposited side of the coin has a bride and groom coming down a grassy hill from a chapel with our names on it..."Greg and Katherine 2008."
I had decided to plant the coin in the "Lord of the Rings" geocache a few days before our visit to the cache and have my girlfriend "find" it when we found the cache together on the weekend. I wasn't sure I could pull this off - but I did and it went flawlessly.....

We found the cache and sat on one of the walls to look thru it. It just so happened that the "Will you marry me" side of the coin was upward and my girlfriend found it. She looked at it and said.....look at this....this is neat (not knowing it was meant for her). She flipped the coin over and saw the bride and groom and our names on it and let out a stunned gasp. Tears started coming to her eyes and she grabbed me and hugged me. After a minute she calmed down and I reached in my backpack and pulled out the ring. I officially asked her to marry me....and she said "yes." She was so suprised and happy!
We talked a little bit and returned the cache to it's "coordinates" and talked to some of the nice people "watching" the cache. They were really happy for us and thought the coin I designed was cool and romantic......
It was a beautiful day in Santa Monica and a great start to my fiance and my life together!

Who Wants to Be a Super Cacher?:



If you want to be a Super Cacher, you'll have to have the strength to overcome the threat of Poison Sumac. There are all kinds of deadly plants out in the wilderness from creepers aiming to trip the unwary geocaching to Kudzu trying to entangle those who go by.  Only a Super Cacher will be able to overcome such plant-life obstacles to find the cache.  This coin is 1 5/8" (42mm) in diameter and 3.5mm thick.

If you want to be a Super Cacher, then you will have to sign the log book to claim the cache find. While others give up the hunt and still log a cache as found, only a true Super Cacher actually logs the cache both online and in the logbook. Nobody likes a phantom logger.  This coin is 1 5/8" (42mm) in diameter and 3.5mm thick









So you want to be a SuperCacher?
If you want to be a Super Cacher, you'll have to have the strength to overcome the dual threat of the DNF Duo. Only a true Super Cacher has the stamina to continue caching after stumbling upon two DNFs in a row.

Whitewater Event (2007):


Mid size coin with heft. Unusual shape. The front of this coin uses lots of enamel and has nice 3-D work. The work blends very nicely with the design. It shows a stringed instrument in the coin shape. It has slight but nicely detailed relief work around the medallion and the "head of the strings. The medallion has script above and below the strings. It reads "Paddle Faster I Hear Banjos" There is a small commercial "G" at the end of the neck. The reverse has lots of 3-D metal work and nice background metal texture. The image shows a group of rafters, a raft and rapids. There are music notes on either side of the image. The detail is excellent on the rafters, and the paddles. There is a commercial logo done in 3-D and the commercial "G". These do not detract from the design. The raised script says "Riding the waves". Available in other metal colors.

Wheel Of The Year (2008):



The Wheel of the Year is a Wiccan and Neopagan term for the annual cycle of the Earth's seasons. It consists of eight festivals, spaced at approximately even intervals throughout the year. These festivals are referred to by Wiccans as Sabbats.

In many forms of Neopaganism, natural processes are seen as following a continuous cycle. The passing of time is also seen as cyclical, and is represented by a circle or wheel. The progression of birth, life, decline and death, as experienced in human lives, is echoed in the progression of the seasons. Wiccans also see this cycle as echoing the life, death and rebirth of their Horned God and the fertility of their Goddess.

Vision and Tradition (2009):


In April 2008 the Institut de Physique du Globe de Strasbourg (Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre) and the Geodetic Institute of the Karlsruhe University (TH) established an geo-scientific and transnational joint venture called GURN (GNSS Upper Rhine Graben Network). Within the GURN initiative these institutions are cooperating in order to carry out research in the framework of the transnational project TOPO-WECEP (West and Central European Platform), which succeeds the former project EUCOR-URGENT (Upper Rhine Graben Evolution and NeoTectonics). The proposed research is based on GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) in order to detect recent crustal movements.

SIDE 1 3D ART
Samuel De Champlain had a dwelling, or Abitation, constructed out of wood to serve as a residence, a fort, and a storage place for the food and furs he traded. Cannons, a palisade of wood stakes, a moat, and a drawbridge protected the entranceway. Beginning in 1609, Amerindians visited it regularly to trade furs for European goods. Québec also became a staging ground for missionaries with the arrival of the Récollets in 1615. A fort built at the top of the hill marked the birth of the upper town. However, twenty years after its foundation, Québec City still had only 72 inhabitants.

SIDE 2 2D ART
The colors used in the coat of arms of Québec City possess a heraldic significance: gold symbolizes strength, faith, justice, wealth, constancy and splendor; silver: humility, purity, charity, truth and victory; azur: sovereignty, majesty, serenity, good reputation, knowledge, clarity and loyalty; gules: love, pain, grandeur, courage, generosity, bravery and intrepidity; and green: hope, revival, abundance, beauty, freedom and cheerfulness.

The ship represents the period when Québec was founded, in 1608, by Samuel de Champlain, who came from Honfleur. It also represents the maritime vocation of Québec with its important seaport. The full sails symbolize the strength and courage of the population. Each of the two keys has its own significance: the key on the right symbolizes Québec as the capital of New-France, of Canada, at the beginning of the English regime, and of Lower-Canada; the key on the left represents the Capital of the province of Québec since the Confederation. Together they symbolize the political and municipal history of the City of Québec.

Vanelle (2009):
non-trackable

There are two versions, silver and gold. The gold version is for cache drops only. The silver version is available for trade.
The front features some elements that appeal to me and say something about my geocaching style. I travel a fair amount and publish a lot of puzzle and earthcaches. The little stars in the sky are really constellations - my favorite (Orion, harbinger of winter here in the northern hemisphere) shows up just under and to the left of the question mark.

The back has this little "Vanelle" logo of a girl walking thorugh the world. I sketch that quick cartoon in every log I sign. Behind the V is a compass rose, and behind that, the topo map for home. You can see my house, barn, and roadside corner. I picked the deep blue on the back because it reminded me of blueprints (I am a landscape architect).

COIN DETAILS
1.5 inches
Minted by coinsandpins.com
Trackable on geocaching.com with their own Icon

The front shows the Golden Gate Bridge and Lady Liberty signifying from sea to shining sea. The back has "Caching Around The NEIGHBORHOOD" above a trolley car, to show the local aspect of the USA which is about it's people and it's communities.

This is the first in a series of "USA Geocoins by the Artist"
This beautiful coin was designed by the well renowned coin artist Jamie at Madhatters Neverland. USA Geocoins surveyed coin buyers to ask what coin artist they respect the most and Jamie was one of the top mentioned artist. We have contacted several other artist that have said they would also be contributing to this project.  Jamie has also informed us that he will be donating $1 of each coin sold to the following charities.

Ronald McDonald House
Childrens Hospital for Eastern Ontario
and the local Cub Scouts

Here is what Jamie had to say about this design idea:

For the front
 I decided to put the Golden Gate Bridge and Lady Liberty.
I choose these two for a couple of reasons.
1) I was watching a movie the other day for the hundredth or so time and go to the part where a bear and a frog are in a Studebaker (yes I'm a kid at heart) and the bear starts singing "O beautiful for spacious skies..." as they drive across the country.
That song ends with the line "From sea to Shining sea".
I thought that was a great way to describe the USA - So I picked a monument on the one coast and the other.

2) I may have a unique perspective of this assignment over the other artists in that I'm what Americans would call a foreigner - I'm Canadian born and bread.
So I got to thinking that most people in the USA came from somewhere else. They came to the USA with their hopes and dreams to make better lives for themselves.
And when they arrived in the US, often, the first thing they saw was either Liberty in the east or the Golden Gate in the west.

As for the back...
I could have put other monuments... Rushmore... the Alamo... Hoover Dam... All important in their own right yes, but they didn't seem to fit for me. Plus the USA is more than it's monuments and structures. It's about it's people and it's communities. So instead of the "big picture" of the USA I put on the front, this side I wanted to look more at the communities. It took me a long time to think of how...

As I said before, I'm a kid at heart (I've been a 6 year old for the past 28 years). I decided to think back to the first time I was 6 (and even before) and remember what my first impressions of the United States were. At that time, my view of the USA didn't extend much beyond one particular street and one particular neighbourhood so I figured items from there would be my "monuments" to people and community.

I wanted to add one last note...
On the back, I used the spelling "neighborhood" because this is a US coin and all, but to be honest, I much prefer the Canadian spelling "neighbourhood" because I just can't see it without "you" :)
cya on the trails....

This coin was designed by River Cacher.This is his first non-event geocoin. River Cacher was inspired to create this coin after attempting to locate coins to give away as Birthday gifts, Milestones, FTF prizes and other types of presents.

This coin is meant to be in a series of 4 different colors. This particular coin has a yellow border. Once these 250 coins are sold River Cacher will create the same coin but with a green border. That coin will then have a green balloon icon. After that he will create a blue balloon and then a orange balloon, each with different icons.

Unity Dragon/Unity in Heaven (2008):


THE STORY BEHIND THIS COIN:
For seven years we have lived as American expatriates in Sichuan, China doing humanitarian work. While I was there, my family and I had the privilege to put some of the first (and now, oldest) geocaches in the Country. Oh, the geo-stories we could tell! As we began to make our preparations to repatriate to the United States, the devastating Sichuan Earthquake of 2007 hit our beloved city, Chengdu. Though it was a great tragedy, I was impressed with how the Chinese people, the government, and organizations around the world unified, coming together to reach out to those whose lives where forever changed in an instant.
This coin commemorates the spirit that unifies the "west and east", and pays tribute the country that so blessed our lives.

Side A : The Chinese Dragon and Phoenix are ancient Chinese symbols whose origins can be traced back 7000 years. Deeply rooted into the Asian culture, as seen here, the celestial creatures are centered on the sun. The dragon, being the leader and the phoenix being the helper, balance each other in unity bring in prosperity to all.

The art for this side is drawn from traditional "community gate" blessing carvings seen in Sichuan, China even to this day. The art from which the die is drawn, is the authors (mine smile.gif ).

Side B : There is a European medieval belief in "Cathy", a place of shared belief and unity in faith where the Judeo-Christian God of the Old Testament and “Sheng Di” (God on High) of Ancient China stim from the same ideals. The text (in simplified characters) translates as follows: “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.”

Uckermark(2006):

Welcome to the "Uckermark" Region!
In the North-East of Brandenburg, 80 km from Berlin, next to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Poland, you find the Uckermark. With 3058 km² this the largest county in Germany. With only 142000 inhabitants, it is one of the most sparsely populated regions of Germany - best conditions for peace and recreation in nature. Fertile land, pure air, clear water in nearly 400 lakes, rivers and streams characterize the Uckermark..

In this nice area, you can find a lot of interesting, diverse caches. Most of them were hidden by "Söhne der Uckermark" (community of cachers in the region Uckermark).

With this Geocoin, we want to show our connectivity to the Uckermark and draw the attention of the Geocacher community to this wonderful landscape.
