    Also, GeoTees 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. 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 - 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 mainly because I like their Ancient series. Good value imho, certainly a lot cheaper than ebay and the delivery times are pretty good too.

    or are there any you wouldn't recommend/want others to avoid/have had bad experiences with?

    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.

    Have a look at Oakcoins, that was where the GAGB coins were produced.
    How many are you looking at?
