Welcome

Geocaching: a global activity in which people hide containers in interesting places around the world, then upload the coordinates to same on a listing service such as www.geocaching.com.  Participantes use GPS (Global Positioning System) receivers to locate the hidden containers, also known as geocaches, then write about their experiences on the listing service.


  

Geocoin: a generally (but not always) coin-like token with a tracking number engraved or stamped onto it.  These coins can be registered at their respective listing sites (usually geocaching.com) and logged in and out of geocaches, so that the original owners can track their travels.

To the home of Kat, also known in the Geocaching world as Jackalgirl.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts (Illustration) from the Columbus College of Art & Design and I do geocoin design primarily as a hobby.


I have been geocaching since 2007, when I discovered the activity from a blog post by Scott Kurtz at Player vs. Player.  I bought my husband a GPS receiver (a Garmin 76CSx) and I’m afraid to say he’s had very little use of it since.  Having always been interested in military challenge coins, I was intrigued by the idea of geocoins.  My first geocoin was designed in 2009 and I have provided a variety of designs and/or mint blueprints since that time.


As an artist, I primarily work on geocoins.  I also do occasional work on military challenge coins, both for commands and individuals, as well as provide design service for command logos.


Due to the nature of my regular work, I cannot take commissions for geocoins at this time.  If you are interested in my work, please check out the links page for links to companies who sell geocoins I’ve designed or designs for which I’ve provided blueprint services.


If you’re interested in receiving semi-occasional updates about upcoming geocoins, you can set up an account in my shop and subscribe to my newsletter.  Thank you for your interest!
