Zodiac Geocoin - Gemini
For those that come here often, you know that when we have a special series, it is common for us to turn to our friend and celebrated designer Chris Mackey. When we decided that we would like to do our very own Zodiac series, we knew that his intricate designs and incredible detail would make this a special collection.

Gemini is the tenth geocoin in our Zodiac series. The dates for Gemini are May 21st - June 20th.
Each of these unique coins are trackable at Geocaching.com with a unique icon. They measure approximately 1.75 inches in diameter.
Please note: The tracking code is located on the side of this coin.
Here are some design notes from Chris Mackey:
On the face side of the coin we see the twins surrounded by the sixteen stars of their constellation and the four aspects of their divine muses. They are the patrons of the natural sciences (math & physics), philosophical thought, infinite history and the arts of crafting. They are also the patrons of sailors and the heavenly embodiment of St. Elmo's Fire that appears about the sails and masts of sailing vessels. On the reverse we see the symbol of the twins centered and surrounded by 16 white swan feathers representing the stars of the constellation. The Day Ruler is Saturn, the Night Ruler is Mercury and the participant ruler is Jupiter overhead. The color on both sides represents agate. While often depicted as a white or grey, the more common color is a deep, dark honey color with a golden translucence.
