The Living Skies Organizing Committee, the Geocoin Event team, and Landsharkz are proud to show a sneak peek of the artwork for the Geocoin Event Geocoin. We are also happy to announce that the Geocoin Satellite event was published today!

Continuing the prehistoric fossil theme started by Tethys C + C-side Girl for the first two coins, this coin features “Big Bert” – a prehistoric crocodile which lived 92 million years ago when Saskatchewan was under a great inland sea. He was 5.6 m (19 feet) long, and its skull alone was more than 1 metre long.

The finished geocoins will look spectacular! It features an antique silver 3D die on the fossil side, and a 2D multi-level die on the other, with imitation hard enamels for the text and water around Big Bert’s head, and translucent enamels over a gritty texture on the water side which appear solid in this preview. The current day major rivers and lakes will appear lighter in colour by using a mid-level in the die under the translucent enamel. Big Bert’s eye will also be a yellowy-green translucent enamel over a gritty background, so should really stand out.

Be sure to log your ‘Will Attend’ on the event page, and if you are interested in obtaining this coin (or order more) you can do so via the registration pages. This coin, plus remints of the previous two WestCan Geocoins are only available via pre-order until May 23rd.

The previous two Geocoin Event Geocoins, for reference.
(BC Coin is not to relative scale – it interlocks with the Alberta Coin)

      I replied already on facebook, but I’ll reply here as well for the benefit of everyone else reading. 🙂 You most likely are thinking of the official Geocoins from WestCan1 and WestCan2. There was another set of coins made specifically for the Geocoin satellite events at night after the main event ended, and this coin continues that tradition.

      Hi Bill! This coin can be ordered, along with the previous geocoin event coins, and the official Living Skies coins via the registration process on this site. Just checked the registrations, and I see you actually already ordered one of this coin along with your registration in February.
