That is true. I never thought about it. I believe I've swapped coins with her once or twice.

Fair enough, if you guys will advise me on how to package and ship coins internationally I'll change the rules. The contest is now open to everyone regardless of location! I'll also change the final date of the contest to Sunday June 14th to give all of our our forum members from other countries a chance to enter.
Heck it's my contest if I want to change the rules at the last minute I guess I can. Wink

PS- I'd also welcome any tips on packaging and shipping coins domestically. I've never shipped coins before.

Just put every thing you have in a big box and send it to me. I'll take care of it from here. hehehehe

When shiping coins the first thing is to remember is that you don't want any one to know you are shiping coins. I use pleanty of packing and try to fix the coins so they don't move around. Some folks even tape the holders to the inside of the box or envelop so they want slide out. Plane and simple is best.

And here is the most important thing about shipping coins internationally. You have to fill out a little customs form and declare the contents of the package. Don't write "coins"! Write "Hobby supplies". If you write coins someone might get sticky fingers.

Haveing shiped many things internationally I have found being vague on your customs form is a big plus. A good postal worker who knows you and don't ask a lot of questins is a help also.  Smiley

Andy, Just place coins on a piece of cardboard, fold the cardboard over the coins. Staple or tape the ends of cardboard to prevent coins from getting loose in envelope. Place cardboard into Bubble mailer, secure flap with clear tape. You should be just fine shipping this way. PM sent.

Well the winners are.... everyone who entered Grin I'll add a bonus prize to the mix to make it come out right. There will still be some luck involved though. I'll package all 4 coins without labeling them and shuffle them, then I'll address them at random. So everyone PM me your mailing address. As soon as all the addresses are in I'll mail the prizes out. Thanks to everyone for playing.
