    Really like that idea!
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I like the anniversary idea, and I have an idea to expand on that. But I'm going to have to do some research first.

    I like the state outline idea too. I think the argument against that was the back side looks like ... well, like the underside of Maine. We'll have a little better idea how much of an issue of this is when we have the 2009 coins and see the back of them.

    I think the anniversary idea is cool but we already have the Portland Headlight on a coin so maybe something on a different take for the state. We have other places in the state besides the coast that typifies our state.

    I agree with Haffy on this one.

    i agree also about the coast thing. maybe some stats like how many caches then and how many now.

    I'm there with you, Rick and Jaime. My view is to honor the 10 year mark and Maine geocaching, certainly not a given cache. With that in mind, there can be many options....from the western mountains of Maine to the coast to Mt Katahdin to inland waters.....I think you get the idea.

    Default Ft Williams

    Ft Williams was featured on the 2005 Maine coin. Take a look for yourselves.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    So my idea on the continuation of the anniversary idea was to have a cache placed as a commemorative cache. This might be placed as the first cache of 2011 (Or the first cache of 1/2/11, which is really 10 years after Maine's first cache was placed) by a chosen individual or placed by this site's account. This cache could then be featured on the coin. I like this idea less after pondering it for a day, mostly because it might not be right to honor a cache which has not stood the test of time.

    Either way, it is an idea to ponder nonetheless.

    I like the idea of a commemorative cache, however I think it can be problematic in a variety of ways. Earlier comments regarding Ft Williams or the light on the coin are valid and spot on. I think my idea was more of a "theme" for the 2011 coin.
