View Full Version : Maine's newest geocoin...

In commemoration and celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the first cache placement in Maine, I've created this new geocoin. Since this is the nation's most photographed lighthouse, it's the exact dimensions of a photographic slide. The transparency is meant to be like a 35mm "negative" but as a positive image, like a slide has.

Photographs of the coin are attached...

In total, there are 300 coins: 50 Gold (G) and 250 Black Nickel (BN). All will be available for the 10th Anniversary price of just $10 each.

The Gold version is limited to Maine geocachers only, at least through the end of January. In order for everyone to have a chance to get one, each Maine cacher is limited to ONE (1) Gold version. This version will only be available when you see me in person or make arrangements to pick one up. I will begin a list with 'reservations'. You may post a reply to this thread and I'll honor the requests in the order in which I receive them. In your reply, please indicate if you want a Gold version and how many, if any, of the Black Nickel versions (up to 3, initially) you would like. You may also send an email to me if you'd rather. Remember, I'm not shipping these coins; you must get them from me personally. The best time to do so will be at the 'Celebrate - 10 Years of Caching in Maine!' event (GC2HKCJ) on January 30. I'll have all the coins there, and each coin reservation will have an envelope with the cacher's name. (Note: if you don't want to post, please send an email and not a PM through the board. I don't always see those in a timely way.)

The Black Nickel will be available to all with shipping available. I'll start selling those after the Celebrate event on January 30. I'll post in the national forums at that time. There'll be a limit of 3 BN per order.
After January 30, if there are any gold coins remaining, those will be available first to former Maine cachers, then to finders of GC128 prior to 1/2/2011, then to anyone. Maine residents may buy more at that time, and more Black Nickel as well.

Based on the way the 10-10-10 geocoins went, I expect these will go quickly. There are just 300 and when they're gone, there are no more.

If you have any questions, please post or email and I'll do my best to reply promptly. Keep in mind... the general idea here is for the Gold versions to get distributed to as many Maine folks as possible and not bought up for someone's eBay auctions. Same goes for the BN.

Lastly, I do still have some kayakerinme sets in antique silver available for trade. See me for more details.

Thanks, Barry

I would like one of each, and can pick them up at the Celebrate event.

(Hopefully these aren't based on Kodachrome film, the last processing lab is discontinuing processing next week after 74 years.)

Oh my, I hope it's not too late for Team DeLorme to sign up for one of the gold coins for our Team DeLorme Coin Vault! Please put us down for one of the gold and one of the silver if there are enough.

They'll look great next to the amazing set of MAINE coins you've already put on display in the case.

Thank you!

Got you Sudonim and FinsUp!

Chip, I heard from Mike and have a reservation in for the coin vault for both versions. There'll be enough Black Nickel for sure.

Most folks who had reservations picked up the coins at the event tonight. I have several reserved coins for which I will contact folks to see how they want to get them.

I have 6 remaining Gold versions and multiple Black Nickel versions. If you got BN at the event and want to get more, please let me know. I'll hold the remaining Gold versions for Maine folks. Contact me if you want to get a coin.

Thanks, kayakerinme

Hi. Yeah, I got busy, too. I have an envelope with your coins and I'll hold it until we meet again, or I can mail it to you if you wish.

It's in an envelope with your name on it. I'll hold it until we're crossing paths again (and a pathtag, too).

Thank you, Karen. I was a bit out of sorts after going to WWWWWW7 @ Winslow Elementary first (guess what, no body was there), then getting to Windsor Elem 2 hours late! Yes, I can still get lost with several GPSrs in my CAARRRR!:eek:

If you want to buy coins and want them shipped, now is the time. About 200 Black Nickel coins are available now that the event is over. Coins are $10 each, shipping is $2.50 for the first, and $0.50 per coin thereafter.

Send me an email with your Paypal email address, your caching name, your name, and your mailing address and I'll get some coins out to you!

If you have any questions, please send me an email. Please don't send me a PM as I don't see those very often.

Update: The gold coins are now all spoken for. I have a box set aside with gold versions for several Maine folks who made reservations either here or via email. If I don't hear, I'll follow up with folks at the end of the month. If you want them shipped, let me know.

I hope each gold version has found a good home here in Maine or in the hands of a former Mainah.

There are Black Nickel versions remaining. If you want any, let me know and we'll figure out how to get them to you. You can buy more than three if you want, and that applies to previous purchasers as well.

Any questions, please drop me an email. Again, please don't send me a PM as I don't see those.

Kevin and I had no intentions of buying one of these coins till we saw it......its beautiful! pictures dont do it justice.....we just had to pick one up for our collection. thanks for bringing them and sitting next to us so we could spy then at the event hehe

Now, see, I wasn't going to say anything about not planning on purchasing one of these coins. We've only been caching a little over a year and a 10 year commemorable coin just didn't seem to be something we'd value as much as some who have been around for that long. Then, as Pam said, we were sitting close enough to see what they look like and they are a marvelous coin. It'll join our collection that will be discoverable but will not be released into the wilds of the geocaching world. Thanks for bringing them to the event!!

Are there any of the black nickel still available? I'd love 2.
Yeah, newbie here, but where exactly would I find them on the national forum? (what national forum...do you mean on geocaching.com?

Yup, plenty of black nickels left. You can send me an email through the board with your pay pal email address and your physical mailing address. I'll send you an invoice for $23 for two.

The national forum refers to the geocaching.com forum for geocoins and travel bugs.
