Also, GeoTees (http://www.geotees.co.uk/index.php?cPath=27_52) have a good selection of geocoins in stock atm

Keep an eye on the UK Pinned forum thread about geocoins in development by UK cachers. (https://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=149496) Eclectic Penguin has some lovely puffins :)

I buy most of my coins direct from the designers/producers in USA - I watch the topics on the Geocoins Discussion forum (https://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showforum=44)- It's great to see what new designs are in production and you can often pre-order a coin to be sure you'll get one. Yes, it does mean that you have to pay postage from USA but that's usually US$ 4-5 (3 - 3.50) which isn't too bad, IMO. Very often it's possible to buy a coin cheaper direct from the original producer than to buy it off Ebay.

I get mine from Geocoin shop De (http://www.geocoinshop.de/) mainly because I like their Ancient series. Good value imho, certainly a lot cheaper than ebay and the delivery times are pretty good too.

I have just started using geocoinstore
American based site that has some decent coins, they take approx 2 weeks to get to the UK

We've used geoswag before. They often do promotions for free international delivery which brings the price down.



They're also the front-end to oakcoins.

I usually buy from Ebay or if I can, the person who designed to coin.

We are wanting to get a coin custom made with our own design is there any sites that we could go to, to do this? :)

Have a look at Oakcoins (http://www.oakcoins.com/design4.html), that was where the GAGB coins were produced.
How many are you looking at?
