Entry Rules

Recommended Posts

General Points


* You may enter coins in as many of the groups as you wish.

* You may enter a maximum of three (3) coins in each group.



How to set out the description for your coin


* A heading before each coin image url should in the following format:

Your Id - The Group - Date [or approximate if applicable] - Country /Amount /Denomination

eg. Sylvester - Group M - 1910 - Ceylon 5 Cents



Providing links to images of your coin


* Images of the coins must be in omnicoin --- reasons for this have been discussed on a number of occasions. Post only the url of the image -- not an img post

e.g. http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/972703.jpg


[To get this you have to first upload your coin onto omnicoin. Once this is done you go to the 'large view' of your uploaded coin [see here], once there right click on the image or your coin, go to properties, on the next window that comes up you will see Address URL; this is the address you need).


* You may [if you wish] include a brief description of the coin/item that you would like included along with the image in the competition. Here's your chance to bring the historic importance to the forefront.



Example of how a submission should look


Sylvester - Group G - 1992 - UK Ten Pence





Thanks and good luck.
