200th post!!



Thanks to all who have looked at my questions, many who responded and provided an education that has been fun.

So the prize first, then the contest:

1. One Lincoln Memorial cent 1959 D BU Roll -- Tube
2. One 2009 Lincoln Early Years (Log Cabin) Roll- OBW
3. One Kennedy 40% Silver AU
4. Two 1974 BU Lincoln Memorial cent rolls (1 Denver and 1 Philly) in tubes.

I have photos here of world coins, I'm posting either the obverse or reverse not both for each coin.

Whoever guesses the most correct and has the highest total by providing the country (3 points) OR continent (1 point), but not both (you can't get 4 points for a single coin) WILL WIN! Coin may be a commemorative one. From time of this edited post, you get 24 hrs to answer all, in one post please. If there are up to 4 people with all the right answers before 24 hours is up, these four move on to tiebreaker and the first round is closed.

For participating. you get to have some fun but no prize, also if there is a tie, I am posting more pics for another round for a tie breaker!

Here you go, if rules are confusing, please post what is the perceived issue. Good luck!

@shan, you should consider adding an end time to this round. I'm very glad to have you here and giving back a bit.

Awww...well...you never stated in the rules that we had to include the dates, or even the type of currency it was.

Not sure how fair that is.

What ever happened to round 2?

EDIT: Ah well, your contest your rules. Congrats Mcshilling.

@SilverCent you raise a good point, looking at the rules, there was no mention of denomination, and your effort to explain that with your very speedy(!) reply was what prompted me to think those items were a fair assessment of an answer, and I applied that to the winning answers also. DM me if you want to know specifics.

It's all good here!

After some deliberation, we are having a round two, that's the only way, you both were right under the initial rules, and I did not apply them correctly. Ill post pics tomorrow of another set of 4 coins.

2nd Round Questions (I reserve the right to have a question added should there be a tie at the end of the contest which is 12.00 AM Tuesday, Central Standard Time, USA):

1. What was the name of trade routes in the Indian Ocean that saw commerce between Africa, Europe and India as early as Greek and Roman times?

2. Which European was able to navigate a critical part of the Indian Ocean to eventually disrupt this trade route and set up various ports as colonies in a major spice hub?

3. In these new colonial conquests, how long did this colonizer have a foothold in this land?

4. What were the last 10 coins (name, value, mint year) issued by this colonizer in the land they continued to claim as theirs even after the colonized population was now part of a sovereign country?

5. Tie Breaker: Provide an obverse image of the 1st and 10th coin.
