    Ok, I'm told that there has been a new GAGB geocoin released at the Kent Mega. Where can I order one from please?

    The new GAGB coins arrived in the country this week and were handed over at the Kent Mega (to avoid further shipping costs). A few coins were sold yesterday.

    We will be doing an announcement and launch of the coins in due course, once we have the online shop ready and have finalised the icon design.

    Current plan is for Essex Mega only - as the GAGB have a stand there. Therefore it is easy for people to collect them from a central point and also we want to have some for sale there.

    But may depend on how many orders we receive this week.

    I was delighted to get my GAGB coin in the post. It was exciting to see it in the flesh after the anticipation
    I love the colours, design, size and quality of the geocoin.

    I took it on holiday with me and showed it to a lot of German cachers who are mad about trackables and they all loved the coin too! I know my German friend who is mad about Dragon coins got his order in pretty quick, I hope many more will order one too!

    Thank you and well done to all who contributed to creating the coin, you should be very proud!

    Great coin Received mine recently and I am really pleased with the quality and finish; the chunky feel, soft enamels and unusual shape also all add to the overall impressiveness - well done to all involved
    Looking forward to further versions being released. I think the National Parks theme is a real winner.
