I aggressively collected geocoins from May 2006 through to the end of 2008. Presented here are 986 of the approximately 1,040 geocoins I acquired during the frenzy.

For our 2008 geocoin, Central Ontario Geocachers featured the "Spirit Catcher" sculpture from Barrie's waterfront. Originally created by Ron Baird for Expo '86 in Vancouve, it was later purchased and donated to the Barrie Gallery Project, which became the MacLaren Art Centre. Mr. Baird's sculpture was the first piece in the BGP/MacLaren's permanent collection. It is now a well-known and loved Barrie landmark (even though some people complained about it when it first went up in 1987).

The Spirit Catcher image appears on the geocoin courtesy of the MacLaren and Ron Baird.

The coordinates on this geocoin are required to solve the Spirit Catcher puzzle cache GCYYRC.
