The idea for this geocoin started early January 2020 when the Belgian Geocoin Association (BGA) was awarded a Community Celebration Event planned to be held on May 3rd, 2020 when 20 years earlier the first geocache was placed by Dave Ulmer.
The BGA and some of its members were also awarded Adventure Lab caches and we aimed to publish these during that event. The plan was to use the famous Street Art of Berchem as the theme for the event. We spoke with the street artist SMOK (see at www.smok.im) and he agreed that we use 2 of his street art works for the design of the geocoin. The geocoin would be a kind of souvenir geocoin that geocachers could acquire when completing the Adventure Lab caches along the street art works of Berchem.
Unfortunately for well known reasons that event was cancelled. We postponed it twice but the Corona virus kept coming back so we finally archived the event.
One Adventure Lab was however published so we still invite people to come to Berchem and admire the extraordinary street art work this Antwerp district has to offer to its visitor’s.
Here is a promotional video: Meeting of styles.
The geocoin is trackable at Geocaching.com, is 48 mm in diameter and 4 mm thick. Both sides are protected with an epoxy layer.
Track codes start with the SA letters (Street Art).
