@pep, when you say no satellites, I assume you are not talking about man-made spacecraft. In other words, would a coin with the moon lander on it count or not? Thx for the clarification.


I guess we can allow satellites, as long as they're manned, or capable of being manned. Also allowed are rockets and missiles, but not small ones used for fireworks, etc. I would also exclude small rockets like RPGs, bazooka shells, etc.

I guess we should exclude kites, toy balloons, and the like, along with science fiction stuff.

I guess the ideal arircaft for this challenge is one that is manned.

Here is a $5 proof from the Marshall Islands that I think gives me 1,989 points. I believe that this is the only non-US coin that I have with an image of a manned aircraft/spacecraft.

Ok I gotta put on my thinking hat to come up with something. Give me a day or two to think and then I'll post a new challenge.

Darn, this round ended too quickly (for some reason I thought it was still on), and I wasn't able to post my entry.

I guess I'll figure it out next year...

Ok this one will probe your esoteric exonumia collection. See below for an Orangina key fob that I picked up a thousand years ago (and quickly broke off the attachment point). If anyone posts their exact replica, they win. If not then you can score points by posting in one of the following categories:

French coin of any type: 1 point
French 5 Franc coin: 2 points
French 1862 5 Franc coin: 3 points
Soft drink token: 4 point
Token with a coin replica on one side: 5 points
A different Orangina token: 6 points

Competition will close Sunday evening. Ties go to whoever posts first.
