Geocoins

Post by Team Stargazer » 18 November 03 12:15 am

I've picked up USA Geocoin # 11025 in a cache (Small Soldiers by Team Raider) & I'm wondering how to log it (if I can) ?

I've looked everywhere on geocaching.com but haven't been able to find a way to identify & log this coin.

Help? :(

Generally the coins have their own tracking site. They are not tracked by geocaching.com. Does the coin have any more info on it? There are a few different geo-coins from the US.

Oh - http://www.usageocoins.com/homepage.htm would seem to suggest that maybe these coins are tracked by groundspeak.com.

Yep, & that's what this coin looks like too.

I tried to use the TB search function on geocaching.com by keyword but still no luck finding this coin :?

Solved your mystery.

The number stamped on the coin is a valid TB number for geocaching.com. Goblindust owns it (probably brought it back from the USA), but hasn't activated it yet.

You may want to email him/her and left them know they need to.
