Quiz Question No.10
« on: January 28, 2010, 02:26:49 PM »
It's easier to solve a puzzle than to make one ...

As a collector I am always looking for small differences in coins, and that is what this cross word is all about.
We are looking for 10 countries .... and an 8 letter word ...

Have fun !  :D

I am probably wrong, but I'll guess "mintmark" for the answer.

If that is the correct answer, please let UK Decimal+ host the next question.

Time for a tie breaker.

This is an easy one. The first to come up with the right answer gets the next question:

Which country was the first to issue coins for the MODERN olympic games, how many types (as defined by KM number) were issued and which date(s) do they have?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Whew, I could not have solved that one. Quite difficult. And I fully agree, coming up with a good quiz or question - not too easy, not too hard - is much more challenging than getting the answer(s) right. Now as for Figleaf's question, well, Finland for the 1952 Olympics. 500 markkaa 1951 (relatively rare) and 1952 (relatively common). But types and KM numbers, sorry ...

Correct, Christian. The floor is yours.
