Compass Rose Geocoin® 2007

Captured from a circa 1500s Portuguese map, this compass rose design was found on a map navigating the African coastline. We had the design enhanced by the artist YemonYime to be more visually exciting when minted as a metal image.

The front side has a combination of translucent and glitter colors defining different aspects of the compass. We also added numbers in the outer ring designating the 32 compass points. The backside features an image of a ship's wheel from an actual 1500s ship. This represents the tool used to steer a ship to the correct bearing on the compass.

The 2007 coins were minted in a total of 7 different finishes. They also have the name "Compass Rose 2007" imprinted on the edge of the coin. They are trackable on Geocaching.com and have their own icon.

  • Size: 1.75" diameter
  • Coloring: Imitation hard enamel translucent colors and glitter colors.
  • Platings:
    - Satin gold
    - Black nickel
    - Antique bronze
    - Antique silver with polished gold wheel
    - Limited edition polished nickel with polished gold highlights
    - Only one coin made in antique copper with polished nickel highlights. It was given away in a photo contest and the winner auctioned it on eBay for a charity.
