(what's this?)
Why Passwords? From time to time we or people we sell for will want to reserve the purchase of a coin for only certain people. We do this by password protecting the item for a period of time. This enables the owner, seller, or us to provide early access to a sale for members only, VIPs, reservation lists, etc. When an item is password protected, it typically states on the item's page when the password will be removed. We do not supply passwords by request, you must have received the password through a direct notice to participate in a password protected sale.

The March sherpa geocoin from Chis Mackey is something a little different than the usual St. Patty's stuff. It turns out that the USA, while progressive in a lot of things is about 85 years behind on the International Women's Day movement. Even freakin' Iran and Afghanistan have gotten on board with this, but we're just now getting it into Congress to be voted into National Holiday status for the very first time. If it goes through, it will be the first annual celebration in the US, but even if it doesn't it is HUGE in Europe and getting really big in the USA.

They're concentrating on Social Media this year for their campaign into 2016 with the #Make It Happen and are using White, Green and Purple as their signature colors with in particular purple banners and ribbons. They've traditionally used Rosettes as a design embellishment in the past and a Unisex symbol as the uniting of women and men in a common status level for work, politics, education, finance, environment and more.

It seemed perfect timing to celebrate women in caching and particularly the huge number of women PathTaggers!
