Apollo 11 was the first manned spacecraft to land on the Moon.

9/11, the day the world changed.

November 11th 1889 – Washington is admitted as the 42nd U.S. state.

Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice

How's about making a wish.... there is a saying that if you make a wish at 11:11 it will come true.



so....


if you make a wish at 11:11 and 11 seconds on 11-11-11 .... then it has to come true.... or else I no longer believe.

In Dutch eleven is "elf". And an "elf" is a fairy.
11 is the first number you can't count one your fingers. If you do, you've got one left, which brings us to the (German) source of the word eleven: ain lif (one left).
11 is the first Master Number in numerology

The Great Blue Norther of 11/11/11 was a cold snap that affected the central United States on Saturday, November 11, 1911...hope we don't have a repeat of that next year.

Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. Where can you go from there? Where?
Eleven. Exactly. One louder.

In the game of blackjack, an Ace can be counted as either one or ELEVEN, whichever is more advantageous for the player.

Eleven bring the gift of spiritual inheritance, is gifted as the "Light-Bearer". It is the number of the Light within all. Strengthened by the love of Peace, gentleness, sensitivity and insight. Greatest facility is the awareness of Universal relationship. Is related to the energy of Oppositions and the Balancing needed in order to achieve synthesis. Eleven is The PeaceMaker

I think a red poppy should figure in the design in some way.

The eleventh day of the eleventh month is a solemn occasion - perhaps a coin design which promotes Peace.

I would prefer it not be patriotic, celebrating Veteran's Day, only because Veteran's Day is a US holiday. This is an international multi-event. I think a Veteran's Day version would be more appropriate than a Veteran's Day design. However, a design honoring the signing of the Armistice that ended the World War would probably work.

Agreed, it has to have world wide appeal, that is not to say we would not get it downunder.. we are not savages sitting in the dirt poking berries up our noses :P Ok there was that one time, but it was my 21st. :P

Australia

In Australia Remembrance Day is always observed on 11 November, although the day is not a public holiday. Services are held at 11am at war memorials and schools in suburbs and towns across the country, at which "Last Post" is sounded by a bugler and a one-minute silence is observed. In recent decades, however, Remembrance Day has been partly eclipsed by ANZAC Day (25 April) as the national day of war commemoration.

Last night I started working on an 11-11-11 design, mostly for the exercise of it, but was quickly sidetracked by the rescue of the miners.

From Wikipedia,

The eleventh hour is a colloquial expression meaning "a time which is nearly too late".

How about a proposal for the day…

eleven eleven eleven
find 11, trade 11, meet eleven

Meaning: find 11 caches, trade, discover and/or buy 11 coins, meet eleven cachers … or something like that?

Trying to flesh out my previous idea… This is lame as I've written it :unsure: , but I like the basic idea, so maybe you can make something out of it…
-----------------------------
11 Events on
11.11.11
11 caches, 11 coins, 11 friends

Elevannouncing eleven elevunprecedented, elevunreal events!
Each will offer eleven previously elevunpublished caches. Eleven elevunparalleled new coins will be available. Elevunquestionably, major fun will be had. Elevunbridle your enthusiasm for elevunending fun!

To make 11.11.11 a day to remember...
Find eleven caches,
Discover, move, trade and/or buy eleven coins, and
Meet eleven caching friends, new or old.

No penalties for overshooting the targets!
------------------------------

So, there'd be 11 versions of a coin on the theme and 11 events, each offering 11 new caches.
It seems very do-able since people can discover coins at the events if they aren't into collecting/trading and, of course, they can meet other cachers there.

11: the cacher's dozen

hmmmm

Was trying to play of two other dozens: 12, the world's dozen, and 13, a baker's dozen

If anything, cachers would want 14 to be their dozen, because it's all about the numbers, right?

what came in my mind... was the OCEAN'S 11 movie! :D and you can have the 12, 13.... :lol:

Maybe you can change it into CACHER'S 11.... and the event name to be the meeting of the Ocean's 11.... :lol:

If the place of the event will be near the ocean....WOW! :D

I didn't see the movie so ? But I'm prolly the only one.

More 11 stuff... probably not useful for a coin but here it is anyway:
Eleven days that never were.
The British Calendar Act of 1751, declared that the day after Wednesday, Sept 2nd, 1752, would be Thursday, Sept 14th. Eleven days vanished… POOF!

From wikipedia:
"It has been reported in some history books that a number of the public rioted after the calendar change, requesting that their "eleven days" be returned."
:)
There's even a painting entitled "Give us our Eleven Days".

In chemistry, Group 11 includes the three coinage metals copper, silver, and gold known from antiquity. It also includes the superheavy element roentgenium, which was discovered only recently! Sounds like an AE to me! :lol:
