I have recently found a geocoin that has no owner or activation. What should i do? I checked the log of the cache that I found it in and there is nothing and the cache also did not list it? Do i hold it and see what happens or do i activate it and become the new owner? I am new to this as some of you know, so this is really odd to as to why this coin does not have a owner

The interlake tourism coins were given out to members of their group that placed a cache in the area. It was probably left in there by the cache owner. It may just have been a prize for some lucky person to discover, or they may have forgotten to activate it before placing it in the cache. If you want to be sure, I'd try emailing the cache owner. If they weren't the one that left the coin there, then I'd say go ahead and activate it. You can always let someone adopt it later if you find out they mistakenly left it in the cache without activating it.
