Does anyone have any suggestions on who to use to get some collectible Geocoins made? There is a long list on geocaching.com, so any help in narrowing that down would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

ATMAtags is local.  He just made a fantastic double sided coin for Relay for Life fundraising.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but since it's mine, I don't mind :)  When I first started this thread, I had planned on giving out collectible geocoins as a reward for finishing a cache series that I'm working on downtown. However, I found out that for a small price increase, I can make the coins trackable. So I'm wondering, as a cacher would you rather get a collectible geocoin or a trackable geocoin as a completion prize?

A collectible geocoin is fine with me. Real gold would be a plus j/k. Actually I was happy to be on a geowyz FTF wall of honor or a Muddy Buddies cache find list or a ParkerPlus caches found list.

Trackable is more desirable, but a nice pathtag or unique coin is awesome too!

Trackable is always better, but no one really expects something that nice just for caching.  The reward is in the activity itself. 

 

Coin minting can be pricey.  To get the "per unit" price down to a reasonable number, you have to have several hundred minted.  You could always go with a trackable tag or mini-coin to keep the cost down.

I am a collector much more so than a tracker. But appreciate either equally.
