I googled the topic but "custom geocoins" generally only got me to other people who had created their own custom geocoins, but nothing on how to make some of my own. Same them when i searched the forums.

So.... where do I go and what does it cost? again, I want to make my own custom geocoin, not buy a standard design.

What do you have in mind? Wooden nickel, plastic, poker chip, metal? Searches for these types of terms should come up with loads of discussions on these forums.

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 just want to know where to get them, I am willing to enterain all types, tracking non tracking, whatever, I can decide that once I'm able to compare prices.

Moun10Bike, the father of the geocoin, has links on his website to the places he used for his coins and wooden nickels.

I'd give anything to find a Moun10Bike coin.

FISUR posted this page in a thread on patronizing other members of the geo-community.
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.

Do a google/yahoo search for challenge coins and/or custom poker chips.

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.

Team FISUR: Made at Quality Challenge Coins (www.wemakecoins.com)

Moun10Bike and Wanderingdragon: Made at D & R Military Specialties (www.militaryspecialties.com)

Moun10Bike’s 1st Wooden Geocoins: GoPromos (www.gopromos.com)

Moun10Bike’s 2nd Wooden Geocoins: Old Time Wooden Nickel Company (www.wooden-nickel.com)

USA, Oregon, and California geocoins: Made at Pressed Metal Products (www.pressedmetal.net). If you want to use the approved geocaching.com logo, this place might be cost effective since they already have die for one side of the coin.

GeoNap: Possibly made at MTM Coins (www.honorcoins.com)

Vacman: Made at KVCoins (www.kvcoins.com)

Texas: Sold at www.txgeocoins.com

Canada: Sold at www.geocoins.ca

Oregon (www.cogeo.org) (possible re-order in future)

California (www.calif.geocoin.net)

Crusso: Made at www.pokerchips.com

MountainMudbug: Directions for Polymer Clay Geocoins (www.geocities.com/graphixoutpost/geocoins.html)

Big Bad Trucker: Made at Old Time Wooden Nickel Company (www.wooden-nickel.com). Also see Big Bad Trucker's pointers in regard to wooden nickels (http://members.fortu...y.com/geonickel)

Myarch: Find instructions for Myarch's wooden geotokens at www.geocities.com/team_fisur/geocoins/page17/make/make.html

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.

I hope this helps.

Thanks so much. i did a google search but I guess I wasn't using good search terms because I only found one place, all the other links were for geocacher groups who had made their own coins. THANKS AGAIN!
