Wishing you all a very happy new year!!!

The quiz this year was exceptionally tough.

Question 6 was comparatively easy once the Mystery word was cracked and I realized that the image was squished. But Question 8 proved to be a brain basher..... While scrolling through all the Circulating commemorative Coins of countries starting with T, I was looking at the reverse pictures only and this one was on the obverse. After scrolling through 6 countries, I realized my blunder!!!

The big fun is in the quiz itself! I found it pretty tough indeed this year. It took me a lot of work and searching to find most of the coins. For me, the most difficult was nr 6, because, even when I knew which country I had to look in,I failed to see a match. I found it only in ruling out all the possibilities.

I am a bit out of coin collecting at the moment, so it was an extra challenge for me: could I still find the solutions with my rusty knowledge? I am glad that I could succeed, and this is for me more rewarding than any prize given!

So, thank you andyg for organizing again this great december contest! 8)

This year I had no time for the quiz. I enjoyed it only one hour at my sweepphone. That wasn't enough to solve more than the Chech coin  … But it's a highlight of the year to me. Many thanks to Andrew !!!   :D :D :D

Just wanted to say a very heartfelt thanks to Andyg for the prize he sent me! It arrived quite a while ago, but I was only back home in the last few days and going through my mail
