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.

They are also often engraved with a tracking number, making it possible for their travels to be logged and followed online. We enjoy it so much, several of us here have joined in these adventurous pursuits. Because we’re geocachers ourselves, we understand the activity and we know what makes a great geocoin.
