Sure, I could have split this out and moved it there. But then what would you all do, wait for more coins?

In the past I feel like I have made my challenges too complicated. This post is a little long, but don't worry, the rules are pretty simple.

The challenge:
Post your largest and smallest coin from the same country, made from the same metal.

Rules:
- Your post will contain two coins
- The coins must be from the same country
- For this challenge the size of your coin will be the weight rather than diameter
- Please use the intended weight as originally minted. No thin, lowball Barber dime to bump your score (The exception to this would be of your coin was cut to be used as a fraction of its original value in circulation. In this case, use that fraction of the original weight.)
- The coins must be made mainly of the same metal. Copper and bronze are fine to pair together and the silver content, for example, does not need to be the same for both coins (see bonus points)
- NCLT is fine, but no bullion coins


Scoring:
- Your base score will be determined by how much larger your big coin is than your smaller coin. To determine this score, divide the weight of the big coin by the weight of the small coin.


Bonus points:
+1 if your coins have exactly the same metal composition (copper/copper, copper nickel/copper nickel, 0.90 silver/0.90 silver, etc)
+1 if your coins have the same date
+1 if you take a single picture of your coins side by side.

You can post as many pairs as you want and the highest scoring pair will count

Great Britain 1902 crown/1908 1d



28.28g/0.47g=60.17
+1 both 0.925 silver
Total score: 61.17

The round will end July 19 at 11:59pm forum time

Interesting challenge @bd251!

This pairing is among my best: a silver hemiobol and a silver Cistophorus/Tetradrachm from ancient Mysia (Greece). The little guy is 0.4 g while the hockey puck is a hefty 12.6 g for a score of 31.5. They are separated in time by about 300 years and so it seems unlikely to me that they have the same exact percentage of silver.
