The coin with the earliest born composer I have (thus far) is a 25 schilling coin featuring Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791).
However, if I go with a coin featuring Mendelssohn (1809-1847) and some lines of music I get more points.



Coin: 3 points
Notes: 3 points
Composer: 4 points
"Go Fish!": 2 points

Total: 12 points.

I knew you would like this NumisEd! Cool coin (gee, where have I seen that one before? ), cool start!

Nice amount of points too!

I should also add that the age of the coin/medal, token/notgeld or the formula of it should not be a factor here...

Russian Empire 5 kopeks 1793 EM


Large coin, crown or thaler (>= 38 mm): 10 points - dispite being lightweight for the type (36.0g vs 52.1g), this coin's diameter is larger than normal (44mm vs 42mm)

18th Century: 5 points - 1793

Kingdom: 1 point - Russian Empire

Base metal coin: 1 point - copper

17 points

Dorado the 17th century is not the late 1700s, it is 1601 - 1700.

1784 is the late 18th century

My entry




Ottoman Turkey 2 Zolota, Constaintnople mint AH 1187 + 11 = 1783

Size 44mm = 10 points (Should get more as its so huge)
Date 1783 = 5 points
Metal 46.5% silver not quite full silver so say 3 points for billion
Empire sadly = 1 point

Total 19 (21 points)

Not winning material, but still eye candy and another great entry to look at.
Glad I am not winning as finding new challenges to do is HARD!

I love COINS!!!
