Canadian Forces Geocoin Gallery
UPDATE August 2010 – The price for this coin will be $8.50 each (minimum 10).
The images on this page are of the CF geocoins produced to-date. They are produced on a regular basis for Canadian military geocachers – both currently serving and retired. Please contact us to request to have you name put on one of these coins. Here is how it works:
- 15 to 20 names (depends on space) will be placed on each version of this coin.
- Each version (with a new set of names) will have a different background colour.
- If you want your name on a coin, you must commit to buying 10 coins, you will get them at wholesale price (above)… this is a per-coin price as if you were buying about one hundred.
- Payment will be required for your coins prior to manufacturing, but only when we have enough names to start manufacturing.
- Coins will be made in antique silver and you may buy as many as you want.
- Each person will receive one coin in antique copper as part of their 10 coin minimum purchase.
- The maximum number of coins minted will be approximately 300 of any version. Final minting numbers for each version may vary, and will be announced at minting time.
- Only one copper coin will be minted per person for any version.
- These coins will be trackable on geocaching.com with a CF prefix and custom icon (shared icon for all the versions).
- New versions will be produced as more people request their name on the coins.
Please Note: These coins celebrate the men and women who have volunteered to serve their country as members of the Canadian Forces, Regular and Reserve Force. In doing so, some will if necessary, put their lives at risk for the security of Canadians and in some cases, other nations. To ensure the integrity of the names on these coins, we ask that you verify that you are a serving or retired Canadian Forces member who has graduated from a Canadian Forces basic training course, Basic Officer Training course, or equivalent.

CIC Officers: If you serve with the Cadet Instructor Cadre, and have not been a member of the Regular or Reserve Force, you may request to be included on a similar CIC geocoin. This coin will have a CIC Maple leaf crest with CIC emblazed on it. When we have enough names to produce this coin, we will do so… please inquire through our contact us link. Eligible members may participate in both coins.
