Last year’s CAM geocoin was produced in three varieties:
• the Silver Standard coin earned for completing CAM
• the Gold Limited Edition coin available for purchase at the Afterparty (some stock remains if you're interested!)
• the Extra Limited Edition ‘naked’ coin awarded to CAM cache hiders and a few National Park Service dignitaries. (Most CAM hiders already earned a coin by participating in CAM, and it seemed silly for them to receive two identical coins, thus the idea of creating an alternate version.)
The ‘naked’ coin is an idea of coin designer Chris Mackey in which the coin is minted with fewer enamels, leaving some of the metal textures exposed. This experimental design was a huge success, and many people expressed interest in purchasing one, but unfortunately the extremely limited production run meant none were available for purchase.
Since all versions were struck from the same coin die, the MGS incurred no addition cost beyond that of the coins themselves. In fact, the more coins we order, the lower the cost per coin. We've decided to mint the 2017 CAM in two metals this year: the Standard coin earned for completing CAM will be struck in black nickel, and the Limited Edition coin for hiders will be a ‘naked’ version struck in antique bronze with glow enamels.(click for larger image)
For a very limited time, this Limited Edition CAM 2017 geocoin is available to purchase by PRE-ORDER ONLY. The cost is $15. Purchasing a LE coin will go a long way towards helping us offset the cost of the coins awarded to those who complete CAM. To purchase your CAM 2017 LE coin, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
– you will receive a response with instructions for making a PayPal payment. Once the coins have been delivered, they will be available for collection at MGS events. (If you are unable to pick up your coin at an MGS event, we can mail it to you for an additional postage fee: $3 for the first two coins, +25¢ for each additional two coins.) THE ONLY WAY TO PURCHASE THIS COIN IS TO ORDER IT DURING THIS PRESALE!
NO extra coins will be ordered for sale outside of this window, and they will not be reordered at any time. This offer ends soon, so act now!
