Parity Geocoin - Phoenix Limited Edition


 Sold Out 
The Parity Geocoin is the third installment of the Tranquility series. This is a 50.8mm (2") round coin, 3.5mm thick. It features five (5) color rings on the obverse and 4 color rings on the reverse. The center motif on the front features the European and African continents along with Madagascar and the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

From a design point of view, it's a very complex coin - having a 3 level obverse and a 5 level reverse. There is also something new on the coin that the previous two (Tranquility and Circle of Four) did not have... embedded stones. Lots of stones... twelve (12) in all.

There are lavish borders and intricate design elements on both sides of the coin. The Four Elements are represented on both sides of the coin by way of gemstones on the obverse and symbols on the reverse. The obverse side features Earth, Air, Fire & Water by its corresponding precious gemstone (Gold, Emerald, Diamond & Ruby). Those elements are represented on the reverse by their symbols.

The third ring on the obverse is represented by our feathered friends from around the world. The bird ring will be prominent in raised metal. Ring number two features sheet music of a well known inspirational song that is not just from days past, but also lends itself to nighttime lullabys. (I intend on running a cointest on the title of the music, therefore will not reveal its title here). However, if you are able to read musical notes, please do not spoil the surprise.

The text on the reverse that I found most fitting is a beautiful quote by Ruth Bernhard, a German born American artist/photographer. It reads "The ground we walk on, the plants and creatures, the clouds above constantly dissolving into new formations - each gift of nature possessing its own radiant energy, bound together by cosmic harmony."

Surrounding the quote on the obverse are the elemental symbols on rings 2 & 3. Of course, Geocaching tracking is also on the reverse side of the coin. The recessed 16 wedge wheel on the reverse will be textured with basket weave on one side (Gritty #10) and waves on the other (Gritty #12), all of which will be under translucent enamel.

The Phoenix Limited Edition is finished in Polished Gold with Sun stones.
