Not so far away...
Bit late this year - your reward for waiting is an extra tricky hard version >:D

Same rules as always -
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.

Please do not post answers in this thread.

Last entry is 31st December 2018, after which I will post the prize (s) to the winner (s).

Good luck - as I say it's trickier this year :)

Yes, trickier this year... No. 6 was particularly tough.

Thanks for a good mental challenge!

I found 6 of them rather fast and had expected to complete it by midnight yesterday but then the last 4 (1,2,8,10) came and 4 hours of searching didn't bring up much. Hopefully I will have better luck this evening.  :) Anyway great quiz as always.

This year also, there will be a consolation prize.

As a casual collector and my attempt last 8 to 9 years went in vain of just identifying 1 or 2 coins.... too tough for me :)

All i got it number 4 in the above picture...

I only spotted the quiz yesterday, and I'm away from now until the new year so won't get an entry in on time. :(

Not that it makes much difference - if the deadline was next Christmas I think I'd still only have got two.  ::)

Fiendishly difficult and quite beyond my capabilities I'm afraid. Hat off to those that have solved it.  :o Thanks Andy for your time in putting it together.
