|Compass Rose geocoin 2010 |
The 2010 Compass Rose Geocoin® continues in the tradition of celebrating the spirit of discovery and maritime navigation.
This year¹s Compass Rose Geocoin features the historic and legendary islands of the Azores: an amazing archipelago of lush islands in the mid-Atlantic, each with its own individual character and charm. This volcanic chain of islands has a rich history as an essential and strategic waypoint in the travels of explorers, pioneers, and pirates alike. Legends also tell of an even deeper history that suggests these islands might very well be the remnants of a once powerful ocean empire...the lost continent of Atlantis!
Available in 5 versions: Santa Maria (antique silver), Pico (antique gold), Terceira (polished silver), Corvo (black nickel) and Flores (polished gold).
The compass rose design is based on a 1595AD chart of Angra (located on the island of Terceira) by Huygen van Linschoten. A sparkling gemstone is set in the center of the compass rose.
Size: 50mm diameter Trackable at geocaching.com with its own icon:

Size: 25mm in diameter Trackable at geocaching.com and has its own icon.
