What is a Pathtag?

For those of you that do not know about the craze that is pathtags, here is a little info on what it is all about:

“Pathtags are personal trading items. Used most often in Geocaching, they are also very handy for Scouting, Military and Promotional use. A pathtag is a single-sided custom metal tag about the size and weight of a U.S. Quarter, a one Euro coin or an Australian ten cent piece.”


Believe it or not, Australia is the biggest consumer of pathtags outside the US and it is getting more and more popular every day.

You may have found a pathtag in a cache somewhere or even seen others swapping them at an event. How do I get started you say? Well, is is quite simple really. If you know a little about design, you can actually design one yourself. If not, do not worry, there are lots of people out in the caching community that for a nominal fee will design one for you.

Go to pathtags.com to check out latest deals and current prices to get your own tags minted.

During the pathtag creation process, you can choose from a selection of “Give Backs” just like the Geocaching Melbourne ones below.
