see this line:

We have a limited amount of coins minted through Map@Syst. If you are in a state with a Geospatial Extension Specialist, you can request a Map@Syst Geocoin through them.


you see in blue geospatial extension specialist. push on the blue.


you get then a few people , push on there name and you get a e-mail adress.


Ask then for a free geocoin to set free.


Hope i am clear, if not tel me please.

At first I read the OP about the Map@Syst Geocoins, went to the websites, looked for the coins and couldn't make heads or tails of it (pun intended).

After reading the replies here, I contacted Amy to request a geocoin.

Thank you for this topic. This sounds like fun!

Actually, the coins are already activated. Geocachers will only set them "free" on a geocache.

You have incorrectly quoted this email - it is not from the Map@Syst team at all - it is connection with another Geocoin project called - "Uniting the World" it has nothing to do with the Map@Syst coin.


You're absolutely correct! I haven't heard from that project since July and today I got that message. Messed up! :anibad:

Uff! The only thing for sure is that the coin being sent is already activated.

I'll edit the original message. Please edit my quote, do the same to avoid misunderstandings.

Thank you very much for the head's up!

When I asked Amy if they had a specific mission she wrote that they don't, but if I wanted to come up with one she would give the coin my mission; I thought that was pretty neat and might make it even more fun for the "launcher"!

I sent an e-mail to our nearest Specialist and got this response back as part of an e-mail "I am going to copy this to Amy Hays who is kind of the "Keeper of the Geocoins" for Map@Syst. Perhaps she may have another coin that can be sent out."
She did e-mail me to say she was sending a coin. Sounds like fun.

A coin for free??? WOW!!!

Can I ask something? Well, the receivers will adopt or activate the coin under their name, right? They will write the mission according to what they will be told from the site....

Will the coin travell for ever? I mean, can a geocacher- owner, put a mission like to travel until 2010 and then come back to a specific cache to grab it and keep it? Just asking!!! :)

i don't want only thank Amy for giving this geocoins away to set free into the world,
but i want to thank also Professor Grumbledor who pointed us geocachers to this project.

And a speciial thanks also for Tooey who answered the questions from you coiners very easy and quick,and who give us the e-mail from Amy.

With out Professor Grumbledor and Tooey we never came in contact so quick with amy and her geocoin project.


:) So a big Thank youalso for you two :D


Please set the geocoins free and don't keep them or move them with you while caching.


These geocoins are trackable and want to travel around the world.

Thank you all. :laughing:
