Nieuwsflash, December 2009


Welcome Geocachers!

It is become winter now. The wheather is getting rough. TO be able to go out Geocaching, we have warm hats and funny bandana's (sjawls).

For the night cache creators, we have now a wide set of FireTacks, 3D as well as 4D and FireTapes, in different colors.

Last month the Geocachingshop was present at the OFZE event in Dronten (NL). We had a lot of fun. We are looking forward to be able to be there next year again.

The coming weeks will be a little more quiet for us. In january, we will be at a big event in Belgium, the ET event (close to Antwerpen). We noticed that already a lot of people have registered, so we are really looking forward to this event.

Happy reading and see you in our shop,

CrossStaff, BackstaffCross staff

A very early navigational instrument, the cross staff was widely used among surveyors and astronomers. It was not until the 1500s after it was developed further that it started to be used at sea.




The Sextant Geocoin™ is a commemoration to the sextant. The octant and sextant replaced most of the earlier navigation tools in the late 1700s such as the back staff, mariner's astrolabe, and quadrant. The octant is 1/8 of a circle and a sextant is 1/6 of a circle. The sextant allowed for more range in the degree scale over the octant. The Geocoin has glowing elements.


You can find these and other Geocoins at our website, at Geocoins.

Vincent van Gogh Geocoin



Vincent van Gogh GeocoinVincent van Gogh Geocoin

After months of preparations, the first samples of the Vincent van Gogh Geocoin have arrived. We expect the coins in a couple of weeks.

Vincent van Gogh was born at 30 maart 1853 in Zundert (NBr, NL). From 1883 till 1885 he lived in Nuenen, the village where we also are living. In this peroide, he made a lot of paintings about the farmerlive. He also made a lot of drawings which became better and better.
The frontside of the coin is based on a self portret of Vincent van Gogh from 1888 en and the backside is based on a drawing  "Wheatfield with a stoke and a mill", made in 1885 in Nuenen. On the drawing, you can see the Roosdonck mill. This mill is still there and is used regularly (you can buy flour and other products on saturdays).

Next to that, there is a cache hidden near the mill. Take a look at: GC1N33T

This coin will be made in limited edition in antique copper, foggy gold and foggy silver and in regular edition in antique bronze and antique silver.

You can reserve this coin by sending us an email. We will let you know when the coins arrive.


You can find these at our website, at Sneek preview.
