The original how far back can we go? and the How far back can we go? Second Edition! threads have stalled, so it is time to crank up a new edition for the new members to get in on the easy early years.

We will start this with any coin from 2015. Once the first coin is posted, we can post 2015 coins until at least midnight (forum time).

After midnight (assuming a 2015 is posted) we can post coins from 2014. Keep in mind that we can continue to post 2015 coins until someone posts a 2014.

This rule will be in effect for every year: post the current year until at least midnight. This will allow multiple people to post their coins from each year.

Once we move to the next year, there is no going back, no catching up like is allowed in Moe's "Days Of" threads.

Got it?



A summary of the rules...
1. You must own the coin.
2. You must post a photo of the actual coin you own. We do not care who took the photo. No stock photos allowed.
3. The coin can be from any country.
4. The date needs to be validated as described below:
Common era dating is preferred, but it is acceptable if the date can be converted from another calendar.
It is also acceptable if the date can be determined to the exact year from other criteria.
If it is not obvious, please inform how the date is determined (links are okay).

5. One Year Per Day! This allows for more participation. The change to the next year will occur at Midnight Forum Time (US Eastern Time)
6. We must go in order! No going back to previous years, no jumping ahead to later years.
7. One person should not create multiple posts for each year unless someone else has posted in between or you are posting coins as part of a set (like a proof set, commemorative set, etc).
8. To help page loads and scrolling, please put one coin (one or two photos) per post.



As per usual, we can handle controversies and questions as they occur. I will be counting on the veterans to help enforce rules and maintain flow.


Let the fun begin!

Isn't it a bit early to have 2015-dated coins in hand, unless we are talking about Silver Eagles?

Well, technically that is your photo. You paid for it.

I will edit the rule to be more clear of its intent. I want to avoid the "I have this whatchamacallit, but I do not have a photo, so here is one I downloaded from such-and-such."

I'll be probably be last to come up with a 2015 coin - but I will check my change to see if I can start to contribute from 2014 on.

I wonder whether anyone has found a 2015 coin in circulation. That would be quite an achievement this early in the year,

So how is it possible to get 2015?

Well, lots of coins are made (gasp!) ahead of time. For instance, the Canadian 2014 Olympic Lucky Loonie was produced during 2013 so that it could be released in time for the Olympics in early 2014. A better example are the various countries in the Eurozone, all of which spent years producing euro currency to prepare for the final changeover in 2002 - some countries and mints honestly dated their coins with the year of production (so you can find French euros dated 1999 - when I was quite a lot younger and in Europe, I was convinced I had found an ultra-rare French pattern coin because of this date), others were making 2002-dated coins in 1999.

So, when Latvia transitioned from the lats to the euro on January 1, 2014, euro coins were produced during 2013 but dated 2014, so they could be distributed before the changeover. Can you see where I'm going with this? One more country has recently adopted the euro - so I present to you...


Lithuania, 1 euro, 2015

Sneaky!

I will allow it, if that is indeed your coin. If not, we will still need one posted to move on.

Sorry, what were you saying? I had to find a bucket.

Just teasing.

Or am I?

Seriously, very nice. Do all the teams get one or just the Canadian ones? I suppose I could go look for myself.
