20 Years of Geocaching in Scotland




This is a pre-sale for a limited edition Community Celebration 20 years Geocoin. The expected delivery date is mid to late August 2020. Any order including this geocoin will not be dispatched until all items in the order are available. 


Introducing the 20 Years of Geocaching in Scotland Geocoin.

This coin is strictly limited to 50 pieces and will not be reminted. 

Geocaching started in Scotland on 15th December 2000, when user Jock Scott placed Scotland's First GCF0 on Ben More near Crianlarich, Stirlingshire.

Twenty years later and the cache is still going strong and still contains the original log book. This Golden Oldie is regarded by many as the holy grail of UK caching and every year geocachers from all over the world climb Ben More on a pilgrimage to this historic cache.

Since then, Scotland now has over 20,000 geocaches of various types. At the  time Scotland's First was the 207th geocache to be placed in the world. 20 years on the cache is still going strong and is currently the 97th oldest active geocache in the world.

It is hoped to hold a Community Celebration event near GCF0 on he 15th Dec 2020 (not confirmed)

The geocoin: 

This coin is 50.8mm in diameter and finished in Satin Silver with solid and translucent enamels. The pictures are the artwork of the coin and photographs will be added as soon as they are available. 

£2.00 from each coin sold (£100 in total) will be donated to the Caledonian Cachefest (www.geocachingscotland.com) to help promote geocaching in Scotland and go towards funding future events. 

Exact sizes and weights will be added when confirmed.
