This is the regular edition coin of the March Geocoin Club Coin, designed by Chris Mackey!  Here is his take on the design:



In Rome, the Ides of March marks the celebration of the New Year and the worship of Anna Perenna, a goddess/wood nymph who represents the circle of the year starting again and for us... the new geocaching season as winter snows disperse and people get back outdoors. It's a celebration of spring growth, love, wine and the new calendar all wrapped up together. 



Anna Perenna is a kind of patron saint of the turn of the greek calendar. Their new year celebration is mid march / Ides of March and in legends she was going to be betrayed and made to look a fool so she ran to escape, but fell into a river and drowned. She came back as a benevolent water nymph who blesses the new seasons at the ides for a prosperous new year, easy births, etc., etc. They have a huge wine festival in her honor and it's a big to-do in Europe around the Mediteranean.
