Geocache Description:

Kätkön nimi on kolikkokätkö koska se oli kolikkokätkö, eli säästöpossu jonka joku vei tai rikkoi :/.. Ei isokokoisia vaihtoesineitä, kiitos. Julkinen liikenne: bussi 20 & raitiovaunu 6.

Päätepisteen tienoilla oli aikaisemmin mysteerikätkön Pallot - Balls GCWWCR päätepiste. Kiiltävien pallojen arvoitus ratkeaa koordinaateissa N 60°09.691 E 24°55.746: ne ovat ympäristötaideteos. Vieressä on mainio ja perinteikäs kalaravintola, Merimakasiini.

"Kolikkokätkö" betyder myntgömma, och det är i själva verket vad det var. Idén bakom denna cache är att fungera som ett GC-hotell, speciellt för GC:s som anländer till Finland eller är på utresa från Finland. Inga större bytesföremål, tack! Allmänna trafikmedel: buss 20, spårvagn 6.

"Kolikkokätkö" means Coin Cache and - well - that's what it was: a piggy bank which was probably broken by a careless cacher :/. The purpose of this cache is to serve as a GC hotel, especially for coins arriving and leaving Finland. No trade items, please. Public transportation: bus 20, tram 6.

The mystery of the shining balls you can see here and there is revealed at N 60°09.691 E 24°55.746: they are "art". There is also a ball-related mystery cache, GCWWCR. The building next to the cache is Merimakasiini, an old and well-established sea food restaurant.
