Maybe we should change the rules so that whoever has the lowest points has to come up with the next idea?
I do not think that will work because the winner is then obligated to post within that scope.

The goal of this topic is to have fun while learning about coins. Do not over think it and do not worry if it has been done already. Just tweak a parameter, like year or composition. Bigger is not always better.

6 points, just misses out on 7 as Tonga has 108,000 people.

Points for Independence (1970), Tongan Language (Fa'kalahi Me akai= Make more food)
Regular coin, Native, Since independence, Population.

However Bees are not native to Tonga

They were introduced in the early 1900s and most are of Western European and Eastern European stock.

So 6 points.

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

Time to shut this puppy down.

Final standings

Arkie - 5pts
Bd251 - 4pts
Keith12 - 6pts
Pepactonius - 4pts
Spence - 6pts

We have a tie and a way to break it by being fair is through a population challenge of the countries - Worldometer numbers

Kiribati 119,449
Tonga 105,695



Through those numbers I declare Spence the winner!

SPENCE - You are up!


Thank you all for entering a difficult challenge

On this day in 1869, there was a panic on Wall Street due to Gould and Fisk trying to corner the market on gold. For this challenge, post a coin that is either made from gold or was minted in 1869. This will be a popularity contest with folks voting, so post the one that we will like the best. I'll close it for new submissions late on Sunday.

United States -- 10 dollars, 1868:





(no US gold from 1869, but I do have an 1869 Italian 20 lire coin.)

I think I will sit this "Inclusive" competition out as all I have in 1869 are farthings and halfpence.

Prince, the challenge to "post a coin that is either made from gold or was minted in 1869."

I have no gold either, so I will go for the latter... it both my contribution and my popularity vote.
