Celtic Star Geocoin

 

Artist Edition

Artist Edition

          Another Lilly Sue Coin. I have no idea how many of each finish were minted, but I do know that there are only 50 of the Artist Editions Floating around out there.

They are 2" across and they were released in September of 08. They sold out in November of 08. The Celtic Star Geocoins were minted in Antique Gold, Antique Silver and and a Limited Edition was minted in Antique Copper. 50 Black Nickel Artist Editions were also out there. The coins are trackable items and have a unique icon.  There is a see through purple and blue resin in the middle.

All I need to do now is get my hands on a Celtic Moon Geocoin. Hopefully I can get an AE one of those too! Maybe SupremeMe can find me one for my birthday :)

Puppy Pound Geocoin

Dog Days of Summer Geocoin: Front and back

Dog Days of Summer Geocoin: Front and back

I am getting better at finding information for these coins online, although I still sometimes struggle with interpreting it. This geocoin has been called both the Dog Days of Summer Geocoin and the Puppy Pound Geocoin. I am guessing that I have the antiqued bronze/gold finish, as it does not look like silver or copper to me. The Dog Days of Summer Geocoin was available in 3 finishes. This one was referred to as both the antiqued gold and the antiqued bronze. I believe the finishes are very similar.

There were 100 of the Antiqued Copper Dog Days of Summer coins minted. It came with 1 matching pin and 1 oak buck. There were also 100 of the Antiqued Silver LE Puppy Pound Geocoins minted. The silver coins did not come with a pin or an oak buck. The antiqued gold XLE dog bone geocoin did come with the pin and oak buck. 35 of those were available.

Part of the Proceeds from each coin sale went to a Humane Society Charity. The Dog Days of Summer coin is trackable and came with it's own icon. The coin is shaped like a dog bone and was minted by Oak Coins. It was available for purchase from the GeoSwag site in July of 2008.

The silver finished coin went for $10.47. The Copper set went for $14.97. I do not know what the bronze bone "fetched" :p

We don't seem to have the pin or the oak buck so they are not in the photo. I remember when this one came in the mail. SupremeMe purchased it from someone on eBay. He was told ahead of time that the coin came with extras, but that the owner no longer had them. So it was an informed purchase.

Celtic Peacock Geocoin

Celtic Peacock Geocoin: front and back

I like peacocks. They are so colorful it is unreal. When it comes to "survival of the fittest", I never understood how they have managed to make it this long. They don't seem like they would be able to evade predators very quickly, and the males are hard to miss. Perhaps they have just always found sanctuary in the confines of palace grounds.

As soon as I saw this coin I knew that I wanted it. I was so happy when it came in the mail. It is gorgeous. The colors are brilliant, and the details are intricate. If you look closely at the feathers you will really appreciate the effort that went in to this design.

The peacock geocoin is 1.75" across and is 3.5mm thick. It features semi raised feathers under translucence. The celtic Peacock Geocoin was available in Antiqued gold for $9.47. The Limited Edition Antiqued Silver Peacock coin went for $9.97. An Antiqued Copper LE coin was also minted, but I do not know how much it went for. The coins were available for purchase through the geoswag site. This is a 2008 coin.

Copper Mermaid Swag Geocoin

Mermaid Geo Swag Geocoin, front and back

I think of all the Mermaid Geocoins this on is my favorite. I'm quite fond of the copper coins. I found the designer and it comes from tsunrisebey. The geocoin was minted and sold through The Caching Place. 200 geocoins were minted in the Brushed Copper Finish with translucents. 200 coins were also minted in the Gold finish with translucents. I don't understand the page at the caching place. They are both listed under "previously sold coins", They both say sold out, but it also says that they have 6 coins left in stock. There was also a Silver AE Mermaid Geocoin, but I think only 40 of those were minted. The Silver AE Mermaid coin is a glitter coin.

The Mermaid Swag geocoin is 1.75" and is 3mm in thickness. The geocoin has its own icon, is trackable and was originally sold for $8.95. The sale date was set for March 7th, 2008. There are sea-horses on the coin. The seahorses are located under the translucents on the gold and copper coins. On the glitter coins, the sea horses are above the glitter.

SupremeMe actually has this coin in a couple of the colors. I'm hoping to get pictures of them soon!
