Here it's my latest project, the '09 version of the Figueira da Foz Geocoin.
It's coming a bit late, but better late than no coin at all.
There will be produced 150 coins (100 Normal and 50 Limited version).
Not sure about the platings and colors yet, cuz i'm waiting for some samples to choose from.
Most of the geocoins will be sold in the Portuguese Foruns of Geocaching.
But i'll save some geocoins to sell internacionally here on this forum.
I'll announce the time when i'll start a pre-order, once i got the coins myself.. so all of you who might want this coin will be able to try to get one.
Note that it will be a small number of coins.
I'll post the samples soon and, i hope you like this design.
The front of the coin has the city iconic clock tower, that is located on the main beach and some artwork about the sun and nature that shows what turns our city so beautifull.
The backside with some inspiration from Arabic art, its about the sea, the nets from the fishermens, the waves and on its center the official symbol of the city.
Some info about the subject for this coin. The city of Figueira da Foz.
It is located at the mouth of the Mondego river, 40 km west of Coimbra, and sheltered by hills (Serra da Boa Viagem).
The city proper has a population of 46,600 and the municipality has in total 62,601 inhabitants.
It is the second largest city in the district of Coimbra.
It is a coastal city with several beaches, summer and seaport facilities in the Atlantic Ocean coast.
As a city of tourism it plays an important part in the centre of the country.
A zone of legal gambling, one can find in Figueira one of the biggest casinos of the Iberian Peninsula – the Casino Peninsular.
