Back of EMGT GeoCoin/Challenge Coin

The EMGT coin is 1.5" wide by 1.5" tall. To get the EMGT GeoCoin/Challenge Coin you must retrieve the keywords from the 32 EMGT town geocaches. Each keyword earns you 1 wooden nickel! For each EMGT geocache keyword you turn in, we'll mail you the corresponding wooden nickel.

UPDATE: Please note that the EMGT GeoCoin is not trackable (we did not have the funding to pay for tracking too) so the EMGT Coin may be considered a challenge coin.
