BPCI

Recommended Posts

Anyone interested in running another BCI? Would it be open to all the commonwealth coinage?

It would be fun. I would think that all Commonwealth coinage would have to be included.

If it includes Commonwealth countries, I better hurry up and get my Mozambique entries together :ninja:

 

Mozambique joined the British Commonwealth even though it was a Portuguese colony and never had any association with Britain.

Yes Deadpoint, I've already volunteered to run a British PCI, and yes I would gladly include Commonwealth coins. I was just waiting until the other PCI had finished before I announced anything!

 

I'll set up an entry thread in the next day or so.

Expected categories (off of the top of my head).

 

A - Ancient/Hammered (Celtic, Roman, English, Scots, Irish) [16 entry spaces]

B - Early Milled (English, Scots, Irish 1662-1815) [16 entry spaces]

C - Early Milled Tokens (17th/18th/19th century) [8 entry spaces]

D - Late Milled Gold (British Mainland 1816-1968) [8 entry spaces]

E - Late Milled Silver (British Mainland 1816-1967) [16 entry spaces]

F - Late Milled Base Metals (British Mainland 1816-1967) [16 entry spaces]

G - Decimal (British Mainland 1968+) [8 entry spaces]

H - Channel Islands [16 entry spaces]

I - Canada [16 entry spaces]

J - Australia/New Zealand (predecimal/decimal) [16 entry spaces]

K - India/Pakistan [16 entry spaces]

L - South Africa [16 entry spaces]

M - Asian Islands [16 entry spaces]

N - African Colonies [16 entry spaces]

O - American Colonies [8 entry spaces]

P - Other islands [16 entry spaces]

 

Entry spaces are approximate, can be expanded/contracted to meet demand. Entrees can enter as many coins as they wish, but a max of three coins in every group.

 

 

Comments, suggestions welcome.

Alright, alright, I get it. The British dominion is and at one point was HUGE.

Dear Contest Runner Person,

 

My camera is broken and so is my scanner. I want very much to enter many of the catagories as I have a fine set of coins from the Commonwealth. Would it be ok if I wrote a detailed description of my coin, including grade and then used an illustration or perhaps a borrowed picture to represent it in the competition?

Can't wait. I like the catagories. A serious questions -- is the contest restricted to circulating coins or are NCLT acceptable also?

NCLT is allowed (it may even get it's own category if there is demand and some of the other categories are too small to be viable). I've gone all pragmatic Art. :ninja:

Less than a week? :ninja:

 

Can it be until the 24th at the earliest? By the time I get access to the coins, photograph them etc.

Fuller details will appear soon.
