Looking for treasure? Here lies the next clue!

This week, July 31-August 6, work with your crew to collect 35 gold coins on the Friend League and earn the next map piece souvenir! This week, earn 10 points for finding and logging a Multi-cache.

From July 31 to August 9 at noon UTC only, we’re opening up all Multi-caches, excluding Premium only, in the Geocaching® app to all members!

Are Multi-caches new to you? These are caches with at least one stage in addition to the physical container. Cachers travel to the first posted coordinates where they’ll gather more information to lead them to the next stage! Check out this post to learn how to find a Multi-cache.

Week 3 point values:
Find and log a Multi-cache = 10 gold coins.
Find and log a geocache = 5 gold coins.
Find and log a geocache with 10 or more Favorite points = 7 gold coins.
Attend and log an event cache = 7 gold coins.
Retrieve a trackable from a cache = 3 gold coins.
Drop a trackable into a cache = 4 gold coins.

Before you go off to earn your next souvenir, be sure to log the caches you found last week from both far and near! Log your finds by Tuesday in order to be sure you’ll receive last week’s second map piece souvenir.

To earn this week’s souvenir you must contribute at least 5 gold coins towards your crew’s total. The Friend League will refresh every Monday at 5am (PDT), Noon (UTC). This week’s souvenir will be awarded to your profile on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.

    Is a multicache with 10 or more favorites worth 17 points, then?

  • Bruno Rocha

    So, if my crew does 35 gold coins, even I didn’t score it’s fine, I earn the souvenir?

  • CBIIJ

    No – It says right in the instructions you must contribute 5 coins yourself.

  • Geocaching HQ

    Hi Limax, the points value for that will be the greater of the two. So, since Multi-Caches are worth 10 points, and caches with 10+ Favorite Points are worth 7, finding a Multi-Cache with 10+ Favorite Points will still be worth 10 points (gold coins). Good luck this week!

  • Geocaching HQ

    Hi Bruno Rocha, in order to earn the souvenir, you’ll have to contribute at least 5 gold coins (points) this week, in addition to your crew earning a minimum of 35 gold coins. Happy caching!

    exactly what does it mean this week multis are unbarred . we could always find them on our map so what is different?

  • watersphere

    I am still scratching my skull … what’s the meaning of “From July 31 to August 9 at noon UTC only, we’re opening up all
    Multi-caches, excluding Premium only, in the Geocaching® app to all
    members!”?!?
    Because I am not using the Geocaching app – is there a third kind of user except Premium and Non-Premium members? Up till now I thought everyone could see all Multi cache except the Premium feature …

  • Gina

    Do I get the clue if I contribute 35 and the others do not get 5?

    Hello,
    I still cannot see any gold coins for the first week (July 17 – July 23) though I logged 9 finds on the 21st and 22nd and retrieved 3 TB´s. Should I not see the coin-score for that week by now? I have not got an e-mail either.
    Thanks for your help.
