About This Item

 

This coin started the race on the 9th March 2019 in Devon, UK and needs to travel as far as possible by the end of November. 

Last year's winner travelled a whopping 12,000 miles - let's see how far we can get this one! wink

Happy travels, geocoin!

 

For those interested, on the front of the coin is a picture of Brent Tor, an impressive tor in its own right, which also boasts a church atop it! The Church of St. Michael de Rupe (St. Michael of the Rock), Brentor, is perhaps the most striking English example of a church on a height. Today, the church receives several thousand visitors each year. There is a magnificent view from the churchyard in clear weather, with bleak Dartmoor to the east, Plymouth Sound and Whitsand Bay to the south, the Tamar Valley and Bodmin Moor to the west, and the heights of Exmoor just visible in clear weather to the north. Even when the thick moorland fogs descend, this is an eerily beautiful place, as the wind whips shreds of cloud past the hill. The church stands 1,110 feet above sea level on an ancient, extinct, volcanic cone. It is an ancient site – the current church is surrounded by an Iron Age earth-walled hill-fort (150BC – 50AD). The dedication to St. Michael is common for churches in high places – there are nearly 800 in England alone, perhaps the most famous being the abbey fortress of Saint Michael’s Mount on the Cornish coast, and St. Michael’s on the Mount at Glastonbury, Somerset. On the back of the coin is a map of Dartmoor.
