A Geocoin Birthday Gift

An engrave-able geocoin from CoinsAndPins.com
I really was not expecting anything quite so cool as the geocaching based gift I received from my girlfriend Amy and my daughter Amanda. Not to say they don't give very cool gifts but when it is something completely unexpected it is even more, well, cool.

Thus the geocoin I received for my birthday. What surprised me is that I did not know that CoinsAndPins.com did engraving. It's right there on their website but I never guess that I put the two toghether and now that I know how many cool geocaching things you can do with engraving. For now I will leave my creative thinking in check and show you the coin.

Note - Black line is where trackable code is.
Now in this example the coin has a great feel and look to it. It's a 2" x 2" bronze square with plenty of detail and color. The front has raised etching which gives this geocoin it's umph in my opinion though the back has all the personalization of which my girlfriend and daughter exclaims. It's to me a collector's item that will not be going out into the wild but rather cherished in my personal collection.

Thanks again to Amy and Amanda for such a wonderful birthday gift!
