I wanted to enter but was almost certain I'd win and didn't feel like thinking up a new challenge at the moment.

Oh okay, was not expecting to win.

Really thought someone would pull out a Roman coin with a Bireme on it or something. I am scraping bottom of the barrel for ideas now.





A 50 ore coin of Denmark, 1996

Your goal - post coins with hearts on them. Points in this order.

Age of coin +1 point for each year
Number of hearts = x the number of years by hearts = raw score in points, highest score wins.

Example, 1996 = 25 points x 1 heart = 25 points

A coin from 1880 with 12 hearts would be

131 x 12 = 1572 points etc

Must clearly be a heart (Hint Danish coins use a lot of them as the Copenhagen mint had a heart as a mintmark).

Mintmarks of hearts are fine too, ask me if you are unsure about the "heartiness" of your piece.

Have fun.

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

I may have something better, but here's one I already have pics of:




71 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.

Good entry - I think you have all worked out my obsession for all things Danish. I have a huge stamp collection of theirs too.

I should have shown my 1875 Krone, but this is your guys contest now.

I am offering DOUBLE POINTS for any Eligible hearts coin not from DENMARK!!!!

Here's one just for fun.

I counted 8 hearts, plus I think there is one on the other side too.


Here's another one I bought for my wife.
Only one big heart though. :)

1922 Finland 1 markka. Minted in Copenhagen



It's difficult to see the heart mint mark on my coin because of the condition so I've circled it.


- 2021 - 1922 = 99 years
- Non-Denmark bonus 2 x 99 = 198 points

This appears to have a lot of hearts, but no date.

Arkie, your Danish coin has a score of 1460 points!

146 years x10 (9 hearts on shield and heart by date) = 1460 points!

24 more hours to go

Arkie 1460 points
Bd251 - 198 points
Spruett - 71 points
Triggersmob - (I can't score yours as we only have 1 side of a coin and no date, I know its a type made after 1988 and as there are 10 hearts, 9 on shield and mintmark - you would have up to 310 points).

I'll do pretty well on years, but there's just one heart here:



1628 dreipolker, Swedish occupation of city of Elbing.

Can't see a date, but will take your word for it. Its a heart with an arrow too, was the maker of this coin in love?

393 points for you and 2nd place!

Sorry, I should have pointed out that the date on these dreipolkers (truncated to just 2 8) is at 10:30 and 1:30 on the orb side, between the orb and the ring around it.

Maybe the Prussian mintmaster was heartbroken that his city had been taken over by Swedes
