Thread: F.A.T Norn Iron L.A.D Geocoin

    Default F.A.T Norn Iron L.A.D Geocoin

    Received my two coins this morning (thanks Kathy). What fantastic design. It would be interesting to learn more about how the designs came about.

    Bought two so may keep one and release the other. I'd be well annoyed if it went missing though.

    OK, back to work.
    Ho hum!

    (Kathy says you are welcome)

    The coin was created by Donmoore. I replied to a post of his over on the gc.com forums asking for someone to help him put a design together. Over a couple of days we thrashed the design out - Donny providing the inspiration and me doing the graphic work.

    Once Donny was happy he took the design to Landsharkz who tweaked it and the rest is history.

    The front of the coin features some famous things from NI's history such as the Giants Causeway, the H&W cranes and the Titanic which was built in belfast.

    The back of the coin features FATLAD (Fermanagh, Antrim, Tyrone, Londonderry, Armagh and Derry) which are the six counties that make up Northern Ireland and of course a shamrock.

    The coins do look great and certainly exceeded my expectations. I've got one of each in my collection.

    LOL sounding like a true geocoin addict - you can never have enough coins (and icons)
    I just enjoy designing geocoins - I have been working with the East Anglia Cachers forum on their design.
