December competition 2015
« on: December 20, 2015, 08:41:51 PM »
Amazing how often this time of year comes around  ;D

Ten coins once again - can you guess what they are?
(for some reason it's an odd shape this year)

For hints see the previous years threads
2014 thread
2013 thread
2012 thread
2011 thread
2010 thread
2009 thread



Simply PM me your answers and I will post the amount you have correct, send as many PM's with answers as you like.  To win if you have 10 correct answers we will hold a draw, if no one has 10 then the 1st prize goes to whoever has most.



Last entry is 30th December 2015, after which I will post the prize (s) to the winner (s).
Prizes will be revealed in a short while.

Please do not post answers in this thread.
Comments welcome!

Same here! Perhaps third party image sharing website is blocked by my ISP.

I can't see the picture either.

Will give it a go as it's great fun but I don't hold out much hope of getting them all if they're of a similar difficulty to previous years, as I'm not at home with all my reference books...

I have now uploaded the image on a different website and attached it to the message above, the image should now be visible again. I have never had any problems with viewing the image.

Is there an overall "theme" like there was last year? Or just 10 random coins?
