NUMISMATIC TRAVEL QUIZ

Pablo Hoffman of New York City submitted this challenging quiz for  E-Sylum readers. Thanks! -Editor

Attention Lexinumiscryptographers:

You say you’ve been all over the world? Great!

Take a “Travel Quiz,” which has ten different letters. Use any or all of these letters to spell names of coins or denominations of money from any country, any era, any language, singular and/or plural.

Each letter occurs only once in “Travel Quiz,” so you can use a letter only once in each name. For example, “quarter” doesn’t work because it has two Rs. No slang, nicknames, abbreviations or symbols..

GET READY ! GET PACKED ! GO !

T R A V E L   Q U I Z

How many did you get?

1 – 3 ? You is lying! You ain’t been off your couch in twenty years.
4 – 10 ? Your passport looks new and is mostly blank pages.
11 – 15 ? The crew recognize you when you board the plane.
16 – 21 ? They wave you through every customs post on the globe.
More than 21 ? You’re Marco Polo !

{Answers next week }

I'm a couch potato with a grand total of two. How well can you do? -Editor
