This beautiful coin was my November coin from the Geocoin Club. It is absolutely beautiful. Here is some information about the coin, taken from the GeocoinClub website.
The series is titled “Pocket Change” and is a play on words. The idea with this coin (besides of course, looking beautiful) is to help us all achieve a more positive outlook on life. .... The idea behind this concept is that it is generally accepted (and also generally debated, but I digress) that it takes 21 days to form a habit – good or bad. Running with that idea, this coin’s purpose is to help you have more positive thoughts. We affectionately refer to it as the “Harmony Coin”.
The harmony Geocoin was designed by Chris Mackey. It is the first in a series that the GeoCoin Club will offer between its club and the store. The series will be called "Pocket Change". The coin was inspired by a Boy Scout Motto of "Do a Good Turn Daily". At one point, the Scout who dreamed up this coin, was given a simple gold coin by his Scout Master. They were to put the coin in their right pocket, and upon doing their good deed they were to move it to their left pocket.
Combine that with the "21 days to form a good habit" theory and you are left with one seriously beautiful coin. The coin is colored with Imitation Hard enamels and similar transparent enamels. It has a smooth finish, except for the raised braille. The Braille is there so that when you slip your hand in to your pocket, you can literally feel the reminder.
This may be the November Club Coin, but I think that it is an awesome way to kick off the new year.
