OpenGeocoin.org is an idea for an original, unique, affordable gifts to store and find inside geocaches. To be an alternative to metal geocoins existing on geocaching.com.
Our goal is to let opengeocoins exist in any geocache, regardless of the registration service: opencaching.pl (and its equivalents in other countries), opencaching.com or geocaching.com.
They serve as a gifts, personal identity cards and signs we hide in geocaches to let the others to find them, to exchange with others. They can be an idea for cache FTF or souvenirs from events and meetings. They are not intended to be but can be made with individual numbers and regisstered as trackable items, whose trace we can track online.
Opengeocoin have no single "obligatory" design template and can be designed even in a very unusual way - for example, as a set of chess - geochess.
To make OpenGeocoin affordable for everyone, even in small series, we propose the use of wood as a material, as in the popular series of CWG (Czech Wood Geocoin).
The idea behind OpenGeocoin.org is to be a place where (registered) users will be able to:
* Publish their own geocoin design, include pictures and stories
* Create geocoin gallery ( own, found, hidden )
* Inform other geocachers where to find your geocoins (map)
* Search geocaches on the map which can contain opengeocoins
You can take part in the project in several ways:
