That time of year again, the 2015 coins should start appearing

First to post a 2015 Penny, Nickel, Dime, and Quarter. From circulation only. You have to receive the coin in change, or get it from the bank when you cash a check.
Write the date of the day the picture is taken on a piece of paper and stick it behind the coin when you take a picture of it, so we can read it.

Please include each example of coins found in posts. For example, if you find a 2015 nickel, post a pic. Then you find a quarter. Post a pic of the nickel and the quarter in the post in which you show you have found the quarter. And where you got the change in your post, if you remember.

Prize will be awarded. I will try to pick something cool.
Personal integrity will reign here. Please make it fair for everyone. Change only, no going to the bank asking for rolls of new coins, no CRH and no raiding the till at work please

HAVE FUN !

This is a very easy thing to cheat on, I'm Canadian and honestly haven't found any 2015 coins...

Wouldn't be fair. But it must have been a unique experience to attend the release ceremony of Homestead ATB

There is still plenty of time to search your change. Typically all the coins (cent, nickel, dime, quarter) don't all show up until April. Cents usually show up around mid February and the other coins show up through March and April.

So is the contest to find all four from circulation - in other words, first to get all 4 is the victor? Or are there four victors, one for each denomination?

Got the cents in Las Vegas in 52 cents change at Binion's cafe restaurant on 2/11/15. (The half dollar was a first in change in a long time!)

Yes, the contest is to post all four. If you get a cent, post a picture of it with the date and where you received it. When you get a nickel, post a picture of the cent and the nickel with the date and where you got the nickel, when you get a quarter, post a picture of the cent,nickel and quarter with the date and where you received the quarter ...... etc. First to post all four. (please within the rules of fairness) gets the prize.

Trying to make it fun and educational. Everyone always asks " when do the 2015 (yearly circulating) coins start to show up . This is a fun way to answer that question by documenting when circulating coins start showing up in change. CRH, getting rolls from the Fed, posting purchased mint sets, skews the results. Counting on people to Have Fun playing within the guidelines.

Sorry, with no penny and an unfamiliarity with how the RCM distributes their circulating issue, the contest wouldn't be balanced. Perhaps a similar contest in the Canadian forum is order.

Just so we are clear, there is only one contest forum and not one for each country.
