So far,
top score is 9 10 out of 10
then two members have 8 out of 10.

I now have two sets of 10 correct answers - both of which will be entered into the draw for first prize...

Any more...?

Afrasi should be banned form attending these competitions :)    I assume last year, he sent the answers first!

You're certainly not the only one. I'm in as well. :D But I like both the concept of this competition and the way Andy put the "puzzle pieces" together so that they almost look like one coin.

I entered my answer. It was tough to discover the coins. It took me several days to find nr. 5 first, only to discover after some time my answer to nr. 5 was wrong. Yesterday I had only 6 coins discovered, but Christmas opened my eyes: I found 3 of the 4 missing this morning and I now hope my answer to the last one (which I found this evening) is also right...

I think the active members who do not participate in the competition should be punished. They will have to send a gold coin to Andy for NOT participating in the competition. (And a silver coin to me for giving this idea) :D

This one should cover me for a couple of years. :) There's no extra charge for the glob of glue. ::)

Perhaps the addition of tokens [50%] to the quiz for a more even footing?  >:D

I.E. for the token collectors....

I can send a gold guinea imitation.  ;D

I ahev participated in the competition and at first glance recognised 0 out of 10. Interest immediately stopped. Participation was active for at least 2 seconds. I do not deserve to be fined.

I'll add my name to the list of participants of the non-active variety, to avoid punishment - I recognised about two and got no further.  My ability to persevere is at something of a low ebb at the moment.

I now have four sets of complete answers (and several partial sets) - but unlike last year it's still worth sending in completed answers as we will have a draw as to the winners of the prizes.
