English 3332.gif

Featuring a compass rose of Spanish origin from the late 1500s. This is an elaborate design. Details of the images in the compass points were created to be under the translucent colors. This was the first time translucent colors and the underlying design effect was used on geocoins and it started a new trend influencing many future geocoins which used translucent colors. We added the colored ring around the compass rose to add more detail and give it more of a nautical look. The colored ring features an underlying texture design which reflects light in a unique pattern.

The backside uses the standard full color Geocaching.com logo, but this time we moved the custom etching area from the front to the backside so people can personalize their coins.

Historie/History

Geschichte der Coin/Story of the coin

Deutsch 3329.gif

Zur Ehrung und Errinnerung am Zeitalter der Kompass-Navigation vor dem GPS, entstand die Compass Rose Geocoin Serie.
In 2005 entstand das erste Design der ersten Compass Rose Geocoin und es war der Start für eine langen Geschichte und vieler Coin Serien.
Anfangs zeigten die ersten Design Kompassrosen, welche tatsächlich auf Meereskarten, Landkarten und Kompassen zu finden sind, mit ein wenig geocaching Charme.
Spätere Designs wechseln indes mehr und mehr zu ausgefallenen prunkreiche Coin.

Einige Leute haben das Konzept der Compas Rose Geocoin als Design-Wettbewerb aufgefasst, was jedoch nicht der Wahrheit entspricht.
Die Idee hinter der Coin ist es navigatorische Errungenschaften der Welt-Erforscher, Reisenden, Landvermesser und Kartographen, zu ehren,
welche mit der Hilfe eines Kompasses die Welt bereisten und exakte Landkarten erstellten.

The series of Compass Rose Geocoins is a tribute to compass navigation before the age of the GPS.
In 2005 the first Compass Rose Geocoin was designed and it was the beginning of a long history and many coin series.
In the beginning the designs typically showed actual compass roses used on sea charts, land maps, and compasses with sometimes a little geocaching flare to the design.
However, later designs changed and became a more and more fancy styled coins.

Some people have confused the intent of the Compass Rose Geocoin concept as that of a design competition; however, this is not true.
Its concept was born to pay tribute to the navigational achievements of our world explorers, travelers, surveyors, and cartographers who used the compass to navigate and provide accurate maps of the world.
