Trackable Coins Engraved With GPS Coordinates
Geocoins are found using a hand-held GPS
For millennia, explorers have been searching for treasure, forging paths and traveling 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. The geocachers mantra “If you hide, they will come” has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to participate in this global treasure hunt. Geocaching is fun involves one or a group of friends, a hand-held GPS, and some hiking shoes.
What Are GeoCoins?
Geocoins are made for outdoor treasure hunters that would like to stash a custom-designed geocoin in a secret cache or would like to find a trackable geocoin. Engraved with trackable numbers and made from metal, they are highly collected. GPS Coordinates are posted on sites like geocaching.com with these hidden locations.
What to include in your custom Geocoin design
- Your username, or your official geocaching calling card, tag, or handle. This name is used to identify yourself as a Geocacher, and a way for your name to travel along with its journey.
- Your coin's trackable code or number, used as an official way to register your geocoin and follow its progress from cache to cache.
- Something personal to you or your home base. Let your creativity shine by adding design elements that define who are, where you're from, and what it means to you.
- A representation of the goal or mission for your coin. When you register a trackable item, you can include a purpose for your coin, like "visit all 50 states," and including a symbol of your coin's goal is a fun, functional reminder of that mission.
We Make Trackable Coins
In search of hidden treasures, geocachers employ global positioning devices (GPS) in place of their ancestor’s tools, like maps and compasses, to track down caches. Currently, the total estimated active geocaches worldwide are in excess of 900,000. Geocaches are hidden in over 100 countries on all seven continents, including Antarctica. Every cache includes a logbook where messages can be left for future “cachers”. These logbooks enable treasure hunters to catch a glimpse of the history and the visitors that have traveled to a particular location. We also many other styles of custom coins that include adding textures and 3d designs.
