Okay a nice simple game.

1952 - 2022: 70 years of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II


Australian coin set of 1952


NZ coin set of 1952

Very simple game, you have 3 days (Until 4am Wednesday 2 February CCF time, its 3.22am Sunday now) to post as many coins or medals from 1952 as possible. There are a few rules.

1. 1 point per coin and ˝point per medal, but the coin MUST be from a territory/colony/ republic/ independent country/dominion/ overseas protectorate inside the British empire in 1952! (As long as they acknowledged the Queen as head of state or remained in the empire its all good) So no Europe or USA, this includes independent places like India and Pakistan being acceptable, but Belgium, Turkey, Ubangaland are not.
Important: Ireland became a Republic outside the empire in 1949, so its coins are NOT acceptable.

2. You can post 1 coin per denomination per country (so 1 NZ penny, 1 Australian penny etc)

3. Dates must read 1952 in western numerals, no Asian, Indian, Arabic, Hebrew dates etc unless there is the western date too.

4. Remember one coin per denomination for each country.

5. For Steve's sake, 1 side of a coin is acceptable.

6. My examples above would net me 10 points, but if I showed an additional coin like those above I would get no more points.

7. "Set" photos showing multiple different denominations are acceptable and you will get a point for each different denomination coin. Only ˝ point per medal regardless of how many sizes or metal types it comes in.

8. No restriction on different people showing the same coins, so if you have an Australian florin from 1952, by all means show it.

BONUS CHALLENGE - any 1952 dated coin with Elizabeth II on it is worth 50 points (Must be 1952 only, no Jubilee coins like 1952 - 1977 etc). The coin MUST date from 1952!

Have fun!

Can't understand why this contest was such a KOLOSSAL flop. Canadian coins would have been allowed.

Triggersmob - 2 points
Dorado - 1 point

Triggersmob wins - Take it away!

OK, time for the next round.

I am a choc-o-holic, so I want you to please show me your coins with cocoa plants, cocoa pods, cocoa beans or even any type of chocolate product.
One coin type per country, per entrant. Most points wins. Contest will last for 3 days, starting from now.

Steve - Not that I know of, but I think no one did much in that challenge as it may have been to restrictive being British empire only and many people probably have little idea of it now, let alone in 1952 before the wave of independence in the 1960s.

Anyway I don't expect to win, but will start the ball rolling for yours.

Along with the neighbouring Coe d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) this country is known for its cocoa exports.

When I saw choc-o-holic I was expecting this, not the actual bean, plant, etc.

Again, the sideline is where you will find me for this round.
