It is the organizing committee’s honor to present to all of you the concept art of this year’s event geocoin.
For the 3rd year in a row, the most talented geocoin designer in the geocaching community, Chris Mackey, was tasked with designing the event’s commemorative coin. He has knocked it out of the park yet again. The committee has a goal to always have a premium level geocoin for event attendees to purchase to remember the event.
The front of the geocoin features a mature version of our mascot, the Bobcat, relaxing in a field with the hills of Allegany State Park in the background. The reverse side of the geocoin features a roaring bonfire amongst trees, under a sparkling blue sky. The reverse also features this year’s theme, “A Roaring Good Time”.
In keeping with the committee’s desire to provide attendees with a premium level geocoin, some features have been added to the coin. In addition to being cast using the highest quality materials available, this coin is 2” in diameter, which makes it larger than most geocoins. An extra thick clear coating has also been applied to both sides of the coin. Because of these 3 features, when you hold this coin in your hand, you know you are holding a product of extremely high quality.
As has been the case the past few years, we are going to have some interesting limited edition variations available for sale. Actually, we are going to have some VERY interesting limited edition variations available that we will release more information on in the near future. What we have in mind will be highly sought after by collectors.
Remember that sales of this geocoin are one of the biggest revenue streams that keep this event going from year to year. Please buy one, or 5 :-), to help guarantee that this non-profit event continues.
