1970 Australia Cook 50 Cents



One Point Each:

- 1970, 1870, 1770, etc.
- Commemorative theme.
- Has straight edges, that is not a true circle; triangles, squares, etc. all count (irregular or jagged shaped medievals and ancients do not).
- Has two dates, which can be on the same side or opposite sides like this one.
- Depicts two different people, but not more!
- Bonus: one live, one deceased.
- Shows a signature.
- Shows a continent, partial or full.

+1 commemorative theme
+1 two dates
+1? shows part of Eurasia (I'll let you decide whether it counts, Jbuck )

I cannot accept designer initials as a signature. I meant a signature like you would affix to a contract or other document.

However, the map of NZ counts since half of NZ is part of the Indo-Australian plate.

To be honest, any sort of map is going to count.

Another easy matching round




1853 UK Gothic Florin - Fine/gFine condition

Your challenge is to get as many points as possible. How to score.

The year 1853 + 5 points
1850 - 52 and 54 - 56 = 3 points
1840s and 1860s = 2 points
1830s and 1870s = 1 points
Any other date = no points

British coin (Can't be a Florin) + 1 point

Silver coin of .800 or higher fineness +1 point

Size 28 - 30mm + 1 point

Woman on coin + 1 point

Lions on the coin +1 point each

Full flowers and branches +1 point each (Not for each petal or leaf, must be full floral head or branch/vine)
Floral plants with flowers and leaves on stems count as 1 point for the whole plant, not for each stem or part.

Crowns on the coin +1 each crown

Script in language other than English and in western or orthodox script +1 point per language

Have fun, most points win!
