Hi All, just a quick update for you.
It's all worked out with the Geocoin company and they are ready to start a sample on my say so. Unfortunately the exchange rate from € to $ changed and it put an extra €130 on to the bill. So I want to finish a couple of my jobs over the next week or so and will put the money in myself. I just don't like giving the go ahead to something without having all the money in hand. Can't wait!! There are still coins available if anyone wants some :)

Thanks for the update. I just sent another $16 through PayPal for a second geocoin. That way, you can send me one by standard mail and one by 'cache mail' (let it travel from Estonia). :)

I just sent $16 for a second coin. Hope you can send one to me directly, and let the other travel the geocaching way, by putting it in a cache and set the goal to be collected by me in the Oslo region, Norway. I'm looking forward to see the result!

Sure no problem, it looks like it's going to be end Jan/start of Feb when the Geocoin will be ready :)

It will be interesting to see the postman arrive with an 18kg package :P

Well you have all been waiting for it and here it is the first photo of the First Estonian Geocoin sample. I have made one small change, the stalk of the flower will have no colour. But other than that mass production starts today. Woohoo!
