My 2010 Geocoins.
I decided to include a photo of the 2010 geocoins that I worked on. There were a lot of fun times dealing with them and working on them. All together there were eight different coins that were produced. Two in the photo are just to show the front.
On top of that there are two coins in the bottom left. I received a call from the coin manufacturer at coins and pins in November. Another group in South Carolina wanted to use the coin die from the front, and use a different back. So the two from the Indian Waters Council were using my die for the front and theirs for the back. I dont think they produced a lot of coins, but I was overjoyed when I received the two in the mail with a patch from their 2010 council camporee. Thanks guys. I did not know who to thank, so I will say that here.
Hopefully the 2011 coin will be just as well received, if we get it off the ground.
If you are interested four styles of coins are still available. Brass and Copper from the Blue Outer ring, green inner ring (in the middle row left) and the Brass and copper with the green outer ring and the blue inner ring (bottom row to the right). The council offices still have them for $10 so let them know your interest. Council services are (801) 437-6222. They were only taking credit/debit over the phone if I remember right. Tax was .70, I guess everyone pays it but I am not sure, and shipping was $1 at one time. So ask if you are interested.
I may take the time to list a few of my coins that I got in my next list. Sorry it took me so long to get back. It has been a busy Christmas and New year. Time to get back into the swing of things.

There was a variation with the same front die, yet the back is different. It was from South Carolina. I do not know how many of those were made.
