The Sextant Geocoin™ commemorates the sextant device, which in conjunction with the octant, replaced the earlier tools used for navigation, including the astrolabe and quadrant. The sextant allowed for greater accuracy than previous devices, and is still used to this day, as a fallback device to electronic devices.
The coin is trackable on geocaching.com, with its own icon, and is produced in antique bronze with a polished plating over the actual sextant. The stars around the sextant glow in the dark.
