About This Item

Compass Rose 5th Anniversary

5th Anniversary Compass Rose

 

2009 is the fifth year of the official Compass Rose Geocoin. This coin celebrates the anniversary by incorporating design aspects of all five years into one coin. It also adds one more special feature of an actual working magnetic compass. This is the first geocoin to have a working compass. Each coin has been given a special theme for navigation achievements world wide. We also added a black nickel Compass Rose Geocoin representing the Black Sea.

 

This is the first year we have designed a Compass Rose Geocoin that was not based on an actual compass rose used in navigation. Instead, the front side has a blend of designs for all five years of the previous Compass Rose Geocoins. Since this coin was introduced before the official 2009 Compass Rose Geocoin, the fifth year design aspect is only slightly revealed. The backside shows the perils encountered when navigating the seas without good navigation tools such as the compass. From the belief of sea monsters and sirens, to storms and running aground or sinking, open water sailing was the most dangerous occupation of the time.

  • Size: 2" diameter and 7mm thick. Its thickest point is 10mm.
