New geocoins (trackable metal coins) and "cachekinz" (a metal tracking tag in the shape of an animal) arrived from the USA today!
The "Project APE" caches were to promote the launch of the 2001 remake of "Planet of the Apes", it was a very good move for a large movie to align itself with a new hobby, geocaching, which had started the year before.
Inside the large ammo tins were props from the movie, as well as the usual log book etc.
This coin and cachekinz tag are made by the local Geocaching group, to celebrate the last Project APE cache remaining in the USA, with just one more left in Brazil.

With "APE" standing for "Alternative Primate Evolution", it could be a good opportunity to remind people that we too are animals!
Perhaps Invercargill, New Zealand needs a tribute to the APE caches? :-)
