Description EN

Wooden nickels have become one of my favorite things to find in a cache or directly trade with other cachers.  I've just created my 3rd personal signature item nickel, at the time of this listing.  I've also created a Flickr album of my (mostly) wooden nickel collection, though it also includes some poker chips and other similar items.

This site is home to the Wooden Nickel Historical Museum and The World's Largest Wooden Nickel, as featured in the "Ripley's Believe It or Not" newspaper cartoon on 27 November 2002.

World's Largest Wooden Nickel


Availability: 24/7  (The museum, itself, is open Mon-Fri, 10am to 4pm.  Weekends and special hours are by appointment.)

Logging Requirement: To confirm your visit, please include a photo of you and / or you GPS along with your log with the giant nickel. 

Since the north  side is dedicacted to different organization, each year, I'd appreciate it if you can get a picture of that side, but it is not a requirement.

Note: Although you will be able to complete this cache without entering the museum, I would recommend trying to visit while they are open.  The staff gives each visitor a souvenir wooden nickel which reads "I visited the Wooden Nickel Museum and saw the WLWN", and a booklet that tells the history of wooden nickels, our company, the WLWN and museum to each visitor.

Special thands to Amanda of Old Time Wooden Nickel Co. for her assistance with this cache.
