And the most important question: Should I disclose what will be the prize from me or should it remain a secret? :D At the moment only Figleaf knows what it is...

It was indeed a challenging competition. It took me several days to find the first one, which seemed afterwards a wrong guess (I thought the El Salvador peso was a coin from Uruguay, which made it very difficult to find the theme.)
Also, using twice the same country drove me mad! I already knew country nr. 3 had something to do with an L (the theme being "Collecting"), but I searched every country with an L to find the last coin, except Liberia, which was already used for nr. 4
Very, very clever!

Many, many thanks to Andrew to organise this competition!

I am already looking out to the competition next year! ;D

Yes, many thanks to Andrew!

I got the NZ, Iraq and second Liberia ones immediately, but Canada and the first Liberia one only after I'd figured out the theme. Also in my edition of KM the illustration of the first Liberia one is very poor, and on the Omani one the relevant bit of the reverse is hidden behind the obverse.

A special congrats to all who participated [including me :) although i was expecting a prize for all wrong guesses]
