Thanks! I was just about to start writing




Duchy of Sabbioneta, Vespasiano Gonzaga, sesino, 1562-1591
Obverse: VESP D G DVX SABLON I, bust of Vespasiano Gonzaga facing left
Reverse: SANCT VS NICOLAVS, Saint Nicholas standing
Numista 167193 (the linked page shows a much better example)


15 points for a coin featuring Saint Nicholas
5 points for a coin featuring (and/or from the reign of, if applicable) a saint other than Nicholas (+1 bonus point per extra saint for multiple applicable saints)
3 points for a coin featuring Santa Claus (and/or a similar character, such as Grandfather Frost)

10 points for a coin featuring (and/or from the reign of) someone named Vespasian(o)
5 points for a coin featuring (and/or from the reign of) someone named for a Roman emperor (other than Vespasian)
3 points for a coin featuring (and/or from the reign of) an actual Roman emperor* (other than Vespasian, who gets 10)

10 points for a coin from Sabbioneta
5 points for a coin from any other Italian state
2 points for a coin from unified Italy (or any other country containing all or most of Italy)


In all cases tokens, medals, and other similar numismatic items (if applicable) are also accepted.
I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of coin will win! (I'm not actually sure, though I have my suspicions.)

*) I hadn't yet decided what to do with the (fairly frequent) case of Roman emperors named for other Roman emperors. I think I would probably count them for 5 points (as opposed to 3 or 8), but I'm not yet sure, and could be persuaded otherwise.

Wow, seriously could the challenge be anymore difficult, just saying, coins of Vespasian and obscure Saints.

I realy should have jumped in when they offered it to the other Hemisphere.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

12 points, actually, the Roman Empire counts as a 2-point version of Italy.

You're in the lead and will probably stay there unless @tdziemia shows up with a St. Nicholas and/or a multi-saint coin from an Italian state.


Current leaderboard:

1) pepactonius - 12 points
2) Arkie - 10 points
3) keith12 - 5 points
4) chafemasterj - 3 points

It all comes back to Christmastime...

Quote:
In Western Christianity, 26 December is called "Saint Stephen's Day", the "Feast of Stephen" mentioned in the English Christmas carol "Good King Wenceslas".

2 things

1. We call him Santa claus or father Christmas in New Zealand, not Saint Nicholas
2. I am Jewish and we don't really celebrate Christmas (Or Hannukkah as we are pretty much secular)

Realy, ha spell clecking me the most illiterate and uncoordinated typist on the boards.

Hopefully something will come that I can enter.

I've been a little distracted lately, but I see that there hadn't been any entries for a few days now, so we can probably call this round.

@pepactonius - you're next!
