2005 "Spring Trillium" and "Summer Sunshine" Seasonal Coins

At the time these coins were minted Geocaching.com only had Travelbug dog tags available. Travelertags.com filled the gap for other non travel bug items by providing its own tracking system using a tag number and a passcode. Around mid 2005 Geocaching.com start to provide codes for other trackable items.
