Volunteer Coins 2015

Last summer I had an idea.   Get a group of reviewers together and make a coin.   It had been many years since reviewers and volunteers had their own coin.  I tossed it out and we talked about it, and many thought it was a good idea.  Then life caught up with me and I had no time to follwo through.  Busy summer, daughter getting married, and many other things.

Happily other reviewers dove on without me and carried this through.    A number of designs were presented and reviewers voted on the different options. Eventually we settled on a design.  After many months, proofs, and waiting they were finally finished.  I bought some, yea. I would say who designed it, but withough their permission I think I should just leave it, in case they do not want others to know.

It was a happy day a few months ago when they arrived.  Unlike the earlier coins that were produced we bought the coins ourselves.  So your reviewer may have some, However I am betting that most of the reviewers did not buy any, or they just bought a couple for themselves.

There have been a few coins in the past available through the volunteers alone.  If you are interested, you might contact your reviewer, but don't get your hopes up.   I sold three and that was to pay for them, so then I could give a  few away at events.  I have even

Yes the above two were given to reviewers to give out.  Sadly there are so many reviewers that is not really much of an option anymore.  I think the costs would be way too high.   So now there are the three worldwide volunteer geocoins.
