Map@Syst Geocoin Participation

Response to the Map@Syst geocoin was overwhelmingly positive! The geocaching community stepped forward and responded to the call to collectively participate in spreading the word about eXtension resources.

Over 125 coins were sent to 12 countries! Coins are traveling quickly from Cache to Cache. Several have specific goals and missions assigned by the community. We would like to highlight some of the coin travels here and share some of the coin stories.

If you want to see a listing of all the Map@Syst traveling geocoins you can use Geocaching.com to see all coins through the Trackable Items page.
