Geocoin Code Retrieval SystemThis page will allow you to retrieve activation codes for any coins you have received through Geocoin Club and many other source. We currently host 513,700 activation codes for hundreds of unique coins. This service was the first of its kind! It is offered as a free service to other groups with geocoins that have travel bug numbers. To have your numbers and activation codes loaded into our database, email email@example.com
How it works.
Fill out this short form and your activation code will be displayed immediately and emailed to you. Once you have received it, visit the activation page on Geocaching.com to activate your coin for tracking. Note: To protect the thousands of codes in our retrieval database, we limit the number of incorrect submissions you may have in a two hour period. If you exceed this number (12) you will need to wait 2 hours to regain access to the tool.
This is a code retrieval tool only. You will still need an account and activate the coin on Geocaching.com if you wish to track it. Visit the Geocaching.com activation page after you have received your code to complete the activation process.
Are you having difficulty?
Here are some ideas that might help you finish your retrieval.
- Is the coin code hosted here? There are several code retrieval tools. We host a lot, but not all of them. Click here for a list of coins in our database and see if your coin is on the list. Another good list is at this site.
- Check the code. Sometimes the number zero looks a lot like the letter O. Try both if one does not work. Look closely too, sometimes a 3 can look like an 8 or a B and vise versa.
List Your Codes For Free The Geocoin Club offers this retrieval service as a free service to anyone with a Geocaching.com trackable geocoin. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for your codes to be listed. Please provide the codes at least 10 days in advance of the date needed so we may be sure to have them listed for you.
Not getting the emails?
Make sure we're not going into your spam folder - it happens sometimes. If that doesn't work, maybe there was a hiccup with our mail server - you can submit the code with the same email any time.
