This is my personal "signature" Geocoin, with my name and a horror or unearthly leitmotif.
Maybe you've heard of it. This coin shows motifs from the Cthulhu saga.
It is my first coin that I designed and produced myself.
The design remains the same, but there are six editions in different colors and I am very happy with the coin. :)

The purple, green glitter edition is called "PanPi" and is an LE.
There are four XLE, in significantly fewer numbers: The glow-in-the-dark "Fallout" edition, the neon-colored "Neon" edition, the black nickel "The King In Yellow" edition and the copper "Bad Penny" edition.
The last one is the "Ghost" Edition, my Artist Edition (AE), which is only intended for friends or for a special exchange.

The symbols on the Pan314159 Geocoin mainly come from the Cthulhu mythology, as well as other symbols that more or less belong to it.
On the front you can see Cthulhu himself with two versions of the "Elder Sign".
They are framed by the sentence: "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn", which translates as:
In his house at R'lyeh the dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.

The back shows a moon eye, a glowing cloud and the motto
"This Too Shall Pass" -> which means something like; "Everything has an end" or "That too will pass".
All around it says: "That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die."
-> It is not dead that which lies buried in eternity and in the course of further eons even death may perish.

This is my "signature" coin, with my name on it, plus a horror / supernatural theme.
For anyone that knows of it, the coins has themes from the Cthulhu Mythos stories.
It's the first coin I've designed / made.
It's the same design but in six different editions / colors and I'm very happy with them. :)

The purple / green glitter "PanPi Edition" is the LE edition.
There are four XLE editions in much smaller numbers; the glow in the dark "Fallout" edition ",
the day-glow "Neon" edition ", the black nickel" The King In Yellow "edition, and the copper" Bad Penny "edition.
The last is the white "Ghost Edition" - that one I'm calling my "AE" for friends and special trades only.

The symbology on the Pan314159 coin is Cthulhu themed, plus a couple of other bits that are related.
The Front has Cthulhu itself, plus the two versions of the Elder Sign and around it says:
"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" -> "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming."

The Back has a Moon Eye, a Glow Cloud, and the motto "This Too Shall Pass".
Around it says: "That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die."
