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.

    this has gotten me to think of a different project but i will pm brdad on this and we will see where that goes...

    the idea of the coin being an anniversery is a very good one. we don't have to honor the first cache maybe just the sport of caching in maine

    I thought that was the intention when our second coin was made. We were going to change the theme each time. We did the coast on the first coin. We did the northern Maine woods on the second. The third coin got off track a little but it is an awesome coin.

    well to get on track we could use the white mountains for the western maine area or the farthest point east for the eastern but i would not use anything in central maine for an central located theme for i feel not even augusta is worth mentioning.

    Winter scenes have been mentioned, the 10th anniversary is Jan 2nd, perhaps a snowflake shape?

    In keeping with the anniversary theme, it doesn't necessarily have to be a specific area. Let's say, something like a coin in the shape of Maine. On the back is a pine tree with a chickadee (state tree and state bird) and on the front a silhouette of a cacher/hiker and wording honoring the 10 year mark of caching in Maine.

    "Drawing" this up by me is not something anyone would want to see . I'll work on it over the next few weeks.
