about the geocoin



back side finishing

as geocachers we know: very often we search around "zero" and rarely get to the object directly. we turn around in circles.

now there is a coin to illustrate that behaviour. very simple and plain, but still quite amazing. there are two labyrinths, and they join together by a hole in the center.

the front side is plain metal colour (except writing on the top: black), the labyrinth outlines are raised.

the labyrinth channel on the back is recessed and filled with a colour (red, blue glow-in-the-dark (plus epoxy), white-yellow glow-in-the-dark (plus epoxy), matte black, respectively).

labyrinths are different from mazes – you cannot go wrong with labyrinths (it is just the longest possible way). the coin’s name is also written in the original language of the word, greek: lab´yrinthos.

more about the amzing world of labyrinths on labyrinthos.net (many nice pictures).
