December competition 2016
« on: December 21, 2016, 03:49:01 PM »
Hello all, welcome to our annual competition once again :)

Ten coins as usual - can you guess what they are?

For hints see the previous years threads
2015 thread
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 2016, 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!

Pretty certain on 8 out of 10 so far... The last two need a bit more digging.

It's still worth entering...
Everyone with 10 correct answers will be entered into the draw for the prizes,
plus hopefully there will be a small gift for everyone.

I have always problems with those coins after 2000, because I don't collect them,  :-[ , but that made the challenge.  :D

That is because this was posted at the beginning of my work day so I didn't really get a chance to work on it till 9 hours later.
I did sneak a peek this morning and got to think about it a little.
