Geocaching is celebrating the 2 Millionth Active Geocache by rewarding geocachers with more than a dozen previously unreleased Geocaching Souvenirs. Souvenirs are digital post cards for your profile. You earn a souvenir by finding a geocache in a specific country, like Spain. The virtual pieces of art are displayed on your Geocaching profile page, as well as on the Geocaching iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7 apps.

Geocaching will release five souvenirs shortly after the 2 Millionth Active Geocaches is reached. We’ll release five Geocaching Souvenirs each work day until all previously unreleased souvenirs are available to geocachers.  After all the souvenirs are released no more state or regional souvenirs are planned. Nearly a hundred souvenirs already exist! See a selection of the most popular Geocaching Souvenirs offered on Geocaching!

  • John NW

    Of the 5 new ones released today I can claim 4 of them – and Ive been to South Wales – but not NSW D’Oh!!

  • JMRetSB

    I continue to contribute to reversing the trend for France

  • Bangkok_ian

    Great news, how about one for England?

  • NYPaddleCacher

    It’s 8:30AM in Seattle. Do you know where your souvenirs are?

  • Team Peppi

    Luxembourg please!

  • Leegull1

    OK, it’s tomorrow. Where are the new souvenirs?

  • Chris

    Ah. Thanks ;-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=774114535 Helen Edley

    It’s ‘tomorrow’ :) . I’m sure hoping we get a souvenir for Victoria, BC! Fingers and toes are crossed!

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    Hi Helen – We’ve released a BC Souvenir: http://blog.geocaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/britishcolumbia_rg.png Unforuntately… no souvenirs for cities inside BC.

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    Hi Lee – We just pulled the trigger on the five new souvenirs for today. If you found a geocache in any of those regions the souvenirs should be in your profile shortly. We’re upping the stakes too. We’ll release 6 more on Monday, 7 more on Tuesday and then the last 7 souvenirs on Wednesday. All told more than 300,000 souvenirs have been sent to Geocaching profile so far. Happy geocaching!

  • olfwyn

    mmmh, today there is a souvenir for Finland listed, I have founds in Finland but not received that souvenir, instead I received a souvenier for Norway (I have founds there too) but Norway is not listed as new ?

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    Well… uploading images apparently not always me strong suit. Thanks for the note. You received a little sneak peek at the Finland souvenir. Norway is now on the list. You’ll be seeing Finland again soon.

  • NYPaddleCacher

    I have seen the artwork for a souvenir for France. You’ll probably see it by next Wednesday.

  • NYPaddleCacher

    When a few souvenirs were inadvertently released a couple of days ago there was one for the U.K. I’m guessing that it will show up by early next week.

  • NYPaddleCacher

    If I had to guess, I doubt that Luxembourg will make the cut.

  • NYPaddleCacher

    Unless GS changes their mind and decides to continue releasing country based souvenirs after the 20 remaining new souvenirs you won’t be seeing a souvenir for any of the Caribbean countries. Given that there are 3 regions in Ireland to be released and 7-8 in Australia, that leaves 12 countries. I am aware of artwork that has been created for 16 countries that have not yet been released, and even based on that list there are some fairly major countries which may not get souvenirs. For example, Italy, Belgium, Turkey, and China are not on the list

  • IByteNL

    Do you also get the souvenirs for previously found caches? E.g. I already have finds in Hungary, do I get the Hungary souvenir?

  • GF

    Any souvenirs for Mexico and Japan on the horizon?

  • IByteNL

    Ah, got it already :)

  • Grandma Nan

    Jo day–terrific–vi elsker Norge!

  • neilski24

    Will there be one for Mexico? If not, I think that is one to be considered!

  • Double Amigos

    I really hope that a souvenir will be released for Mexico.

  • Cache-zauber

    Hello,
    France or Netherlands are very great!

  • Spacebat

    Well, there really ought to be a souvenir for the UK! I’ll keep checking for new releases…

  • Abel

    Should be from Vatican State. Especially now in the time of choosing a new pope..

  • http://www.facebook.com/msiporin Matthew C Siporin

    It would be nice if there was one for Mexico since I have found a cache there.

  • J.A.R.

    Was wondering why the USA states souvenirs don’t show the art…just a generic image?

  • Bressen

    Hoping for a souvenir for Denmark..

  • Cache-Zauber

    When come the new souvenirs??????

  • http://www.facebook.com/lars.major.9 Lars Major

    Yeah, I have them now. Thanks.

  • olfwyn

    yes Denmark is a MUST

  • olfwyn

    Monday is already over in some parts of the world – it’s nearly 1730 UTC – when will the souvenirs be released ? OK, it’s only 9:30 in Seatle ;-)

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    The sun is shining in Seattle and it’s time to release 6 new souvenirs! The countries and regions released today (Monday) will pop up in more than 100,000 profiles in just a few moments. Enjoy and check back tomorrow for 7 additional souvenirs.

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    I think you’ll be happy on Wednesday!

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    If you click on the image of the generic state shape… presto!… the full image will show. The souvenir for Texas is especially cool. You can see all the US and previously released souvenirs here: http://blog.geocaching.com/2010/11/geocaching-com-souvenirs/ Which souvenirs have you collected so far.

  • http://blog.geocaching.com Eric Schudiske

    Sources say Wednesday will be a good day for the UK! Keep checking back!

  • Klappstull

    And now Luxemburg

  • NS

    curious to know why the souvenir for France is a giant cock

  • http://www.facebook.com/veronika.havlova1 Veronika Havlová

    And what about Holland? It’s a must ;)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=774114535 Helen Edley

    Now that’s exciting – we’re going to get one added to our profile! Yipee! We love the souvenirs!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=774114535 Helen Edley

    That’s cool. We were hoping that one day Victoria would be worthy of a city souvenir. It would be kinda neighbourly, eh? :) .

  • Dirk_from_Germany

    I hope for England, and China of course.
    By the way: the souvenirs for German regions are boring and fanciless!!!

  • L Halliwell

    I hope Wales gets a separate souvenir from UK!

  • davetecsgirl

    I am hoping for the small Island of Bermuda…. we are 21 miles long and at the moment we have 235 caches… so that is over 10 caches per square mile… and many more to come….

  • Sandra Galley

    I received 4 of 6 today, yay! :D I love them!

  • Ihrlerstein

    I would like souvenirs of England and Italy! How about that?

  • JASTA 11

    The Austrian souvenir is awesome! The best looking one by far.

  • Fassenachter

    The South Africa souvenir looks beautiful.

  • Fassenachter

    A souvenir for Belgium and Croatia would be nice.

  • veulen

    hoping for a souvenir for Mongolia and Russia. And how come a friend of mine got a souvenir from czech republic, and I didn’t allthough we were together and we did the same caches?
