My entry




1850 UK Halfcrown

+3 points 1850
+1 point - neighbouring country (Any point off the Dutch coast lands you between Essex and Lincolnshire)
+1 point silver coin

Ironically I have 2 of those tiny Dutch 5 cent coins


NOT MY ENTRY

I don't have much in the way of tiny coins, so I think this is the best I can do:



Diameter:
1 - 15.01-18.00mm

Other:
1 - silver
1 - face value is 5

3 points
In Memory of Crazyb0 12-26-1951 to 7-27-2020
In Memory of Tootallious 3-31-1964 to 4-15-2020

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.
