we always mention the year
of the coin release on the coin. in a few years from now, this will become more important to know when a certain coin was published in order to put them into a chronological order.
we never or hardly use the four distinct geocaching.com colors, nor the geocaching.com logo. they have been vastly over-used (in our humble opinion). we rather use the public domain Gx geocaching logo.
we do not many coins a year but rather focus on something original and new.
our coins might be a bit more expensive, on the other hand we are not likely to save money in the production: we like colors and we use plenty of them. we also try to have editions with night-glowing colors. we love them. for the extensive use of rainbow colors we are known for yet ...
our coins are always geocaching.com trackable. we try to have a decent custom icon for every coin. we know that icons are as collectible as coins.
we always include the activation code. generally, you don't have to retrieve the activation code off a website, which can be very time-consuming and complicated. if the activation code should for any reason not be on the coin bag, just e-mail us and we will gladly tell you the code. or retrieve it on the concerning page.
if you are not satisfied with the technical quality of a coin, we will gladly replace it or find another solution. we are aware that some coins are delivered from the munufacturer with shortcomings, and sometimes they even slip our quality control before we ship them.
we always have different finishings for coins, so called editions: RE (regular), SE (special), LE (limited), XLE (extra limited), XXLE (extremely extra limited). the pricing of the SE and higher are a bit higher.
the RE and SE might be reminted if the demand is high, in that case it will be named RE2, RE3, SE2 etc. however, LE and higher will never be reminted and will stay limited from the beginning. watch ebay if you want to get some rare pieces.
in order not to miss any of the rare coins, please subscribe to the newsletter. you will get the info about new coins before the general public does. for regular, i.e. returning customers, we always hold back some coins. so there might be some coins left even if they are not in the shop anymore.
the indicated number of minted coins is not always 100% acurate. normally, we have some more of each edition produced. it always occurs that the manufacturer delivers faulty coins with scratches, spots, irregular plating, bad lasering of the tracking numbers, etc. etc. so when we announce 100 pieces of a coin, this means 100 well-made ones will go on sale.
thank you for your supporting ernies coins by purchasing them.
