Flower of Life Geocoin

The Flower of life Geocoin. We have two of them although I'm not exactly sure which two we have.  There was an Antique Gold, Shiny Gold and Matte Gold. (There was also Antique Silver and Black Nickel but I know I don't have either of those!) What I do remember is that SupremeMe bid on quite a few of these before he finally won one.  I really like this coin because it looks just like my favorite game: DaVinci's Challenge. SupremeMe isn't quite as fond of the game but I think that is just because I totally kick his ass, just like in Othello.

Specs:

The coin is 40mm across.

300 Coins were minted for sale and then there were another 20 that were never for sale.

  • Regular Edition (RE): 120 pcs / black nickel
  • Special Edition (SE): 90 pcs / antique silver
  • Limited Edition (LE): 60 pcs / antique gold
  • Extra Limited Edition (XLE): 30 pcs / matte gold
  • Very Extra Limited Edition (XXLE): 20 pcs / shiny gold (never on sale)
The two coins look pretty similar to me. I wasn't even sure that they were different until I flipped them over.

I *think* we have the antique gold and the matt gold geocoins. The coins are trackable items and they come with a unique icon. You can look for Flower of Life geocoins Here.

Bodensee Winter BBQ 2008 Geocoin

 

The Event Coin

The Event Coin

         The Bodensee Winter BBQ 2008 Geocoin is 44mm across, 3mm thick and was available in three finishes. It is a trackable item and has its own unique icon.

   170 of the shop edition coins were minted with an antique finish. 30 of the XLE two tones were minted. 100 event edition coins were minted, but they were only available at the event. I believe that my coin is the shop edition. There are still some of the shop editions available at mygeocoin.de. They have been marked down from 8.00 EUR to 7.00 EUR.  The XLE Winter BBQ coin is very pretty, but I believe they have sold out. You can try your luck at finding the XLE and the Event Edition here.

    I have an entire Christmas tree decorated in Snowflakes, so I'm pretty fond of the front design on this coin. I'd love to get my hands on one of the XLE editions. :) Ethan has purchased several coins from the mygeocoin.de  store and all of our coins were received without incident. I'd have no problem buying from them again. I think they came fairly quickly as well.

2008 Snowman Suncatcher GeoCoin

2008 Snowman Suncatcher Geocoin

     I love it when the information for the coins is easy to find. The 2008 Snowman Suncatcher Geocoin is 1.75". It says "season's Greetings on one side and "Starry Night" on the other.  The stars on the face of the coin do glow in the dark. The Snowman Geocoin is a trackable item and has its own custom icon.

   The coin was minted in three finishes. 125 Nickel ones were made. 75 Gold (LE) were minted, and only 50 (XLE) Black nickel ones were minted.

  THe Nickel ones went for $10.95

  The Gold sold for $11.95 and the Black Nickel were $14.95.

  The Coin was made for Suckerish. 

Holiday Geocoins can be found for purchase here. 

Suncatcer Geocoins can be found for purchase here.

          I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes. SupremeMe ordered so many geocoins over the past few months, that I didn't even really look at all of them as they came in. I was more concerned with just getting them in to their box so that they didn't get lost or damaged.  I do enjoy the suncatchers though. We really need to work on finding a nice way to display his coin collection. At the very least we need to get them all in to a protective coin binder.

Binary Mystery Coin, the gold version

 

The elusive gold binary geocoin

The elusive gold binary geocoin

               The Binary Geocoin, take two. I had no idea there was such a thing but apparently there was a gold version of the "read between the lines" geocoin. How did we find it? Well, we found it on eBay. We bid on it and lost it at the last second. Boy is that frustrating. So, SupremeMe emailed the seller and asked if there were any more. As luck would have it, he was able to buy one. We have an idea of who put these out, but we'll keep that to ourselves. Lol. We are probably wrong anyway but it sure is fun to speculate! According to the listing, only 20 of these were minted. Of course it is a mystery coin so that can't really be verified. I saw one listed this morning and it looks like there might be a few more auctioned off, so, if you want one, this is probably the time to try to snag one here.

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.

Look for the Puppy Pound Geocoin here.
