The Sextant Geocoin™ is a commemoration to the sextant. The octant and sextant replaced most of the earlier navigation tools in the late 1700s such as the back staff, mariner's astrolabe, and quadrant. The octant is 1/8 of a circle and a sextant is 1/6 of a circle. The sextant allowed for more range in the degree scale over the octant.
The biggest improvement the sextant made over all other sighting tools (except the octant) is its double reflecting mirrors which eliminated the ocular parallax other tools caused. It also allowed for greater accuracy by having finer degree adjustments.
The sextant design is so universal and accurate that it is still used on ships today as a backup instrument to electrical navigation devices. Even aircraft used these as backups if their avionic systems failed.
The Sextant Geocoin™ is trackable on Geocaching.com and has its own icon. It was made in both antique silver and antique bronze with each finish having a second polished plating on the sextant. The antique bronze is the only finish open for public sales. There is also text going around the edge of the coin. A unique feature about this coin is the stars around the sextant glow in the dark.
With each travelbug, travel tag, geocoin of other trackable, you need an activeringscode to activate your trackable at Geocaching.com.
Sometimes, the code is already added, e.g. with most travelbugs. It is then available at the paper card which is included with the product.
With the other trackables, you need to request the activastioncode at our website via the following link:
Sorry, no that is not possible.
You can use your own code on certain products.
This must be a Geocaching.com trackable code (eg from another travelbug or trackable), so no self-invented code.
With those products you can see a label with a mark that you can use your own code.
In the product there is a separate tab with a field where you can enter the code. Make sure you save this
That is possible. You can enter your own code for various stickers, which we then use for the sticker.
This code must be an existing trackable code from geocaching.com (eg from an earlier travelbug).
You can enter this in the 'Own input (...)' tab that you see to the right of the product information.
After entering the code, briefly press 'save' so that the code is stored with the product and then put it in your shopping cart.
No, with most trackables, a code is already placed on the product in the factory (travel bugs, geocoins, travel tags, etc). For some products (eg the personal tag or stickers) you can specify a code that you already have from another Geocaching product. Or if you want a sticker made with an existing code.
If you do not have that code, no problem, we will provide a code.
