Way back in 2001, the first-ever geocoin was placed in a geocache sitting above Puget Sound, near Deception Pass in Washington State.
It was an outing by geocaching pioneers Moun10Bike and Jeremy to celebrate Moun10Bike's 100th find. After climbing a questionably sturdy, and unquestionably high ladder to get the find, they each placed a trackable. Jeremy placed an unactivated Travel Bug for someone to find, and Moun10Bike placed a new kind of trackable in the cache: the first-ever geocoin to go into circulation (Moun10Bike number 002).
This now archived geocache, Light House Point, was a challenging way to celebrate this special milestone, and on that day Moun10Bike changed the game of geocaching forever.
Since then, geocoins have become one of the most creative and inspirational parts of this great game, and we are happy to celebrate 20 years of trackable fun and amazing designs!

All four items in this set have their own unique tracking code and are trackable at Geocaching.com with a unique icon.
