Geocoin front and backThe first ExploreWV GeoChallenge is the West Virginia Geocoin Challenge. Be one of the first 250 geocachers to complete the inaugural event of the ExploreWV GeoChallenge and receive a limited-edition West Virginia geocoin. The challenge is a four-part adventure that will take you throughout the Mountain State where you will discover hidden caches at tourist attractions, museums and historic markers.

Each “cachegory” will contain nine to 10 caches, and seekers must find and document at least five caches from each, plus sign the logbook at the West Virginia State Museum to receive the limited-edition coin. There is a limit of one coin per household.

To be eligible for the West Virginia geocoin, you must be a registered member of ExploreWV GeoChallenge.
