I've never heard of these coins before


As a heads up, most coins used in this game are not from the U.S. They are often a bit more "obscure" to try and stump the guessers.

I wished I could have helped you guys, but I've been sick as a dog. I'll be home tomorrow and hopefully feeling better enough to take sprue down. We have to gang up on him with these guesses, but we have a few left. Back to bed for me.

It will give me more time to pick the next coin. If I'm not mistaken, you have until about 6 PM ET to guess.

Hey guys, I feel better, but it may not last. Lets get this guy. Keith, I count a good 4 guesses. Spence, joe, Crafty - yes you will guess - we will help, and myself. Sprue says ....

Gotta use that. What was similar about your guesses? What made you think it was that coin? Was it the hints?


Quote:
This coin has more than one language on it.
This coin has a security edge


Here's the recap to go along so we have all the info in 1 post.

Minted by The Royal Mint between 1950 & 1990
Not larger than 25mm diameter
Country of issue not in Europe, the Americas or Oceania
Not a gold sovereign
Not silver
Is round
Not from Iraq
Not from British West Africa
Not a shilling.

I like Hong Kong, but I like Ceylon too for the country.

The edge security...like the letters on a Canadian Toonie?

We are in a hole here. A 40 year spread, no country or denomination. Not over yet though. A lot of digging may do it.

The security edge is all you have to go on. And I guess its from Asia. And smaller then 25mm. I'll go hit the book

What about this one? I just can't tie it to the Mint yet.

That coin I posted meets a lot of the clues. Less than 25 mm dia. and round. More than 1 language, he didn't say 2 so this is a clue. This one has 3! Has edge security. Fits the years. And get this. Did sprue throw us a bone? Only minted in 3 years. We can cover them all with guesses. Still don't know where it was minted. Edit: Yes, from Royal Mint! I'm feeling pretty confident now, anyone agree?

This one fits as well. Arrrg.

At 25 mm, this one just fits.

I think this is all from Ceylon.

Both are islands.
But I like Ceylon. The only thing is I just played a coin from there not long ago. And I don't think we have been to Hong Kong. Yet

Say, thanks for the review the other day. Wow, round 72. I was going to ask you if you saw a coin from Ceylon while you were looking. I thought we had been there before. Was it before sprue joined in? I'm done on Ceylon, will start on Hong Kong.
