The single most commonly requested swag item for Cache Up NB is now finally becoming available. We are extremely happy to announce that we are now taking official pre-orders for the first official Cache Up NB geocoin.
You can see the look and feel of the new coin from the two images shown above. We had four different finishes applied to the samples that were ordered and ultimately this was the one that provided the best look.
The coins will be made available prior to the mega at a special event being held later this year. If you wish to pre-order a coin, please make a comment on this post as to how many coins you would like to purchase. Your name will be added to a list and as soon as we confirm the date, time, and location of our release event, we will let you know. Coins will also be available for purchase at the mega event on August 1st, and other Cache Up NB events afterwards.
The coins are $15 each, and all profits earned from the sale of these coins will go towards prizes (such as GPS units and other nice items) and giveaways at future Cache Up NB events.
So if you want to support Cache Up NB’s ongoing work with geocaching, post your comment with your order quantity below and get yourself a unique trackable geocoin.
UPDATE: June 9th, 2015
Good news: The coins arrived in the mail today.
Bad news: The coins were minted incorrectly and do not have the proper finish. I have put it back to the supplier to get this addressed but it may be awhile before I get the updated ones. I am really hoping to get them before the mega.
I will post an additional update as soon as I know.
