Description

As the artists have gotten into geocaching and exploring their surroundings in new ways, it was only natural that they start to think about other great exploratory voyages and attempt to commemorate them with coins. Voyages of Exploration is a four coin series commemorating those who ventured out beyond the horizon to discover what lay beyond the edge of the world they knew. The compass rose design on the coin was inspired by a design done by 15th century map maker Jorge de Aguiar. All the coins in the series will share the compass rose design with coloring matching the theme of the obverse side of the coin.

Sea, the first coin in the series, honors the brave sailors who set out beyond the sight of land. They ventured into the unknown – building their maps as they went using tools that were state-of-the-art at the time, but now seem crude compared to the electronic devices available to us as we go about our 21st century explorations. Those early explorers would have understood the drive that send us out to find each new cache.
