June 22 : Yorkshire Geocoin

Hello, Mrs Hg137 here.

On our short geocaching trip round Mattingley, we dropped off a trackable – the Seven Deadly Ducks – and picked up another – the Yorkshire geocoin. One side has a picture of the Yorkshire Rose, the other highlights the position of Yorkshire within England, with the caption “God’s own county”.

This is a copy, on laminated plastic, of a geocoin, and I suspect that it isn’t the original replica, either. The trackable set off in September 2008, so this replica, which looks almost new, has either had a very quiet, tidy, untroubled life, or it has been replaced at some point.

Regardless of all the above, the mission for this trackable is to …” travel round Yorkshire” … It has spent a lot of time doing that, but it has also left the county a few times. It’s been to Chester, briefly, plus longer trips to Worcestershire and Leicestershire, and in May 2019 it was in Essex, before being transported to Kent, then Surrey, then Hampshire, where we found it.
