Description

This coin deserves a little bit of background.

Taking care about the environment we play in is crucial for our hobby so ever since I started designing I had the making of this CITO geocoin in my mind.

During a holiday in Umbria, together with my girl friend, we visited Perugia to attend Umbria Jazz 15 on 11 July 2015.
While strolling in the streets of this wonderful town I meet Pamela Marinelli, a local artist exposing her paintings.
My attention was held when I saw her painting with the dragonfly.

I took a few months to reflect on what to do with it and chatting with Christian Mackey on Facebook I finally decided to ask him to make the 4 level blue prints. But he did more than that, convinced me to make a different backside and ingeniously drew the footprints based on our simultaneous idea to have a back side even more linked to the idea of CITO and “leave nothing but footprints“.

I thought the job was done now. But when I started discussions with the mint in March this year, the most difficult hurdle appeared, a mint prepared to execute the design in 4 levels. The rest is history and would take me 3 pages to tell the number of mints that were contacted. Tastes differ a lot, people may love this coin or not feeling attracted to it, but sure, it is a nice result of more than a year’s work and I am very proud to present it.

The coin comes in a black velvet pouch!
The tracking codes have the CT prefix.

    This is a gorgeous coin – a lovely design and lovely colours, with a great icon too. It arrived really quickly – I ordered it Wednesday and it arrived Saturday and that’s to the UK. So I’m very impressed with the coin and this shop. Thanks very much.

    Beautifully detailed coin. Especially like the feet, tread lightly, on the back of coin. Design, color, and size are wonderful. Fast and courteous handling by the seller.
