I give you 4 points, Zimbabwe is an African word like you said and the soapstone bird is acceptable as a native animal.

Good start!

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Cape Verde Islands

1. Country has become independent since 1970 (So from January 1 1970 onwards)--1975
4. Coin shows a native plant, fish, animal, flower etc - 1 point for each. Unclear if grass/wheat in national emblem is native plant
6. The coin is in regular everyday circulation, now or in the past.
7. Coin was issued after independence (Year of independence is acceptable).

Minus points (- 1 for each, except 5)

Wikipedia says it is in Africa

2. The coin only has European or colonial languages on it. Unclear National emblem identifies national name in Portuguese. Cannot identify source of sailing ship.

Cool. I didn't think to count the bird because the coin specifically depicts the bird sculpture. According to Wikipedia "it probably represents the bateleur eagle or the African fish eagle."

Arkle 5 points, I think I may get rid of the language rule, as I am sure many African countries have several different languages.

UPDATE - I HAVE - You have 5 points and the lead - congratulations

Fascinating idea.

I will have to see what I have, but does not seem too promising.

6 points there!

Kiribati Independent 1979, Kiribati is a native word, Shows a native bird and fish that is 4 points, coin is used another point and issued on or after independence another point.

I can't give you 7 as I am sorry to say Kiribati has 115,000 people!

So you are in the lead!


Overall the number of entries is fairly low and I may close this in 24 hours.

Whoops! I guess you need to get that next idea ready. Just in case one of the heavy hitters fall through.

Sure, bear in mind timezones are confusing here. This clock is some 16 hours behind us in New Zealand, 10.27pm on Monday there is 2.27pm Tuesday here.

Next week is 17 hours behind as we move to Daylight savings as its spring here. I was envisioning shutting the challenge off around 7am our time tomorrow, but may keep it open longer, its just with 3 or 4 entries, it is not setting the board alight.

Maybe we should change the rules so that whoever has the lowest points has to come up with the next idea?
