    Square coin, on one side a QR code that will bring you to this site and what ever you want on other side, for example a QR code that will bring you to the geocaching site to log the coin. You can even incorporate a picture of a moose into QR code with some limitations.

    She here is a question for GeocoinDesign.com, since cano has pushed this idea. Interesting to know, whether it was decided to use on this coin or not.

    About how small could a "21 module size" QR code be minted onto a coin, like the one below, and still have it decodable by a phone?

    On www.prepressure.com there is a discussion on QR code. They are referencing a white paper stating the minimum recommended is 1.25x1.25" so that all camera phones can focus on it. Apparently some camera auto-focus won't work on a smaller target. They do say that the latest models can read QR codes less than .4" square.

    I can still decode image half of this size from the screen, so I guess minting process will be the limiting factor.

    Square would be unique for our coin. Copper is nice too. I do ponder GeocoinDesign.com's statement about there being many moose coins.

    What about if one side had the moose, and the other side celebrated the ten years, perhaps by mimicking Maine's famous road sign, but with the CG codes of the first cache placed every year? Distances could be from some agreed upon place, like the geographic center of Maine.

    Square, copper, Dan's idea and the sign post. Book it Danno...

    Sheesh! Someone obviously likes the remakes of old TV programs! LOL!

    In August 1970, I went to Hawaii on R&R from Vietnam and met my (then) girlfriend there. She just had to see all the scenic spots she'd seen recently on Hawaii 5-O. LOL!

    It's actually a new program, too. The new version is not too bad either, Lee likes it. I generally follow along while surfing at my computer....

    Yes - like I said - someone likes REMAKES of old TV programs. Sheesh! I'll bet PM25780 wasn't even born in 1970! LOL!

    Haven't watched the remake yet, used to occasionally watch the original. The theme song never gets old, however.
