Eclectic Penguin is in the design stage of a coin for our local annual event. Have a look and see what you think :socool:


One early draft :cheers:

looks good - simple but effective - when will it be available ?

As soon as possible hopefully before our Annual event on the May Day bank hoilday weekend . The design is subject to change and may well get more complicated :eek:

The artwork has progressed quite a bit since Matrix sent that image. This is the final version that has gone to the mint for 6 proof coins to be made.


The dragon's outline is provided by a line of raised metal.

In error, another version of the tail side was rendered for us - people liked it so much it may become a split minting of 150 of each (but that final decision hasn't been made yet).


In this case, the dragon's outline is raised metal.

The coin will definitely be available at the Welsh Caching event in may - we're not sure as yet whether it will be widely available before hand.

That's looking really good! :)

I prefer the second (bottom) version of the tail side. I'm sure it's an oversight, but shouldn't that have the "Trackable" wording too?

The final design does indeed have the trackable text - at that stage we hadn't decided where it would go.

Thanks matrix for announcing it here - I've been busily writing up an announcement on the main Geocaching coin forum.
