Der limitierte 2016 Lackey Geocoin wurde von der Groundspeak Designerin Roxxy gestaltet. Seit 2005 bringt Groundspeak fast jedes Jahr eine neue Lackey Coin heraus.
Sie wird zu Ehren der Mitarbeitern von Groundspeak heraus gebracht. Jeder Mitarbeiter "Lackey" wird mit einem kleinen Piktogramm abgebildet.

Roxxy schreibt zu ihre 2016er Design:

Das diesjährigen Design für die neue Lackey Geocoin basiert auf die Armillarsphäre, ein Modell der himmlischen Breiten- und Längengrade.

Chris alias Rock Chalk - coin avatar versus lackey tag avatar

The 2016 Limited Edition Lackey Geocoin was created by our very own and celebrated designer Roxxy.
Since 2005 Groundspeak has released nearly every year a new lackey coin. The coin is dedicated to the staff of Groundspeak.
Every staff member is represented by a small coin avatar.

Here are some thoughts from Roxxy about the 2016 design:

The design for this year's Lackey Coin was inspired by the armillary sphere, a model of celestial longitude and latitude.
This design was chosen to represent HQ's place in something far greater—the game of geocaching!
-as well as acknowledging that each Lackey contributes to the solar system that is HQ.
The accompanying quote by author, architect, and inventor, R. Buckminster Fuller, was chosen to represent the accidental discoveries made while geocaching,
be it YAPIDKA, a new friend...or even finding out the next stage of the multi is back the other way.

The Geocoin has as an extra feature a magnet to keep it closed when folded.
Open it up to find over 70 Lackey Icons representing the entire team of people that make it all happen from Seattle.

Something to note – Some coin avatars differ from the one you see on there Lackey tag (e.g. Chris alias Rock Chalk).
There tag avatar are too big to fit on the coin, so Roxxy designed several new one just for the coin. See picture above.
