I also notice you've posted this to the Travel Bug forum. Do you want to track them? Tracking isn't easy to accomplish and if you've got a really cool item, tracking is really not worth it as it probably won't travel far.

I'm sure you can find what you are looking from among these vendors. There is quite a selection there.
PS Scroll to the bottom of the page for the Items For Sale list.

Below are some past companies that have been used for custom geocoins. I'm sure that there are a lot of other companies out there that can do the job as well. Also listed below are companies that sell geocoins and some suggestions for handmade geocoins.

If you plan on using the geocaching.com logo on your coins, be sure to check out the Geocaching Logo and Trademark Guidelines. If you are looking for public domain logo ideas, check out brdad's Public Domain Geocaching Logo Page.
If you want to see images of any of the above-referenced geocoins/geotokens, as well as others, go to the Geocoin Designs section of our home page.
