For millennia, explorers have been searching for treasure, forging paths across the globe from treacherous peaks to the deepest reaches of the oceans. Today’s treasure seekers have reinvented the pursuit as the perfect hobby for the tech-savvy outdoor enthusiast—geocaching.
In search of hidden treasures, geocachers employ global positioning devices (GPS) devices in place of their ancestor’s arcane tools, like maps and compasses, to track down the caches. Currently, the total estimated active geocaches worldwide is in excess of 900,000, hidden in over 100 countries on all seven continents, including Antarctica. Every cache includes a logbook where message can be left for future “cachers”, enabling them to catch a glimpse of the history of and the visitors to a particular location.
The Monterey Company is an official manufacturer of geocoins for Geocaching.com.
SPECIAL: Free engraving on orders of 150 coins or more! (Trackable codes priced separately).

How to Order Your Custom Geocaching Coins
There are several factors to consider when you order a geocaching coin, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about ordering custom coins:
Can you engrave the custom geocaching coins? Yes, we can engrave the coin for you, and we offer free engraving with orders of 150 or more coins. We can also engrave them with a trackable code for you. There is a 150-coin minimum, and the cost per tracking number is $1.50. We will handle the purchase and engraving of these coins for you. You can activate your trackable coins here. Trackable codes have two prefixes: PC for personal geocoins; and EV for geocoins for an event.
Which geocaching coin is best for my needs? We guide you in creating the initial design, if needed or we can work with you to customize a pre-existing design idea you may have. Our experienced staff can give you suggestions to enhance or modify your design as need in order to ensure that your design is perfectly suited for production. All trackable geocaching coins need to be approved by Geocaching.com, and we handle all of that for you. All trackable coin designs need to be family friendly.
Is there anything I need to include on a geocaching coin? Yes, trackable coins need to include the text “Trackable on Geocaching.com” or “Track on Geocaching.com”. They need to be family friendly and pass approval by Geocaching.com. Using their logo is not required, but if you do use it, you will need to use the registered trademark symbol ®.
How long will it take to get my custom coins? Production time varies depending on the style of coin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
Why should I order my custom geocaching coins from Monterey Company? Because we provide all design and artwork at no charge and have low minimum quantities. Even our minimum quantity for trackable codes is 150 coins! We offer pre-production samples to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want. We also give all of our customers the best quality and the best prices, with fast production times and top-notch customer service.
If you take something, leave something of equal or greater value and record your visit in the logbook. While a variety of “treasures” can be found in any given cache (ranging from small trinkets to CDs or books), one of the most popular is the Geocoin. Geocoins are often categorized as “hitchhikers” because they characteristically travel from one cache to another. They are also often engraved with a tracking number, making it possible for their travels to be logged and followed online. This is fun stuff! Several of us here have joined in these adventurous pursuits (and we have the best coins!).
