To me as a token collector it looked much harder and was beyond me.  :-\

I collect certain tokens and love them. But since I have the common ones I collect world coins.
The competition looked difficult but considering my interest I think I could have done it. maybe.
Anyway, it is always a pleasure to think about.

It took me a long time to work out Eswatini! Good quiz, and I agree, tougher than last year.

Great contest, andyg, and the tenth anniversary "edition" makes it even more special.

I'd like to participate, but I'm way out of my league trying to identify these coins. I'm not knowledgeable enough to easily recognize them. Maybe this year I'll do some "homework" and give it a go. It looks like a lot of fun. Thanks so much for all you do for us here.

If it's any encouragement, when I first looked at the picture the only one I knew was #10. Hunting for the rest is a lot of fun but does take me a while.  :D

Try one of the previous years - you might surprise yourself.  ;)

If you knew one you did very well in my opinion.
I don't think I have ever seen one I knew. I have seen quite a few I knew roughly where to look.
Most took a lot more effort than that though.
