A world tour - post the next country.

    Threads where people post images of their coins seem to be popular. Some go by date, some by country, others by theme, etc. Along the way I see occasional comments about not being aware of a country until a coin is posted. This got me thinking of the concept of a world tour, where we travel around the globe posting coins along the way. You never know, you may find out more about world geography!

    If this seems interesting you then please play along. There are only three rules:

    1. Your post must be a coin from a country which shares a border with the previously posted country. Date is not important.
    2. If a country is on the ocean then any country across the ocean is acceptable as long as there is a direct, straight line between them with no intervening countries.
    3. You cannot return to the previous country. That is, if the previous two countries are France and Spain you cannot return directly to France. This rules needs an exception only in the case of countries such as Lesotho, which is completely surrounded by South Africa.

    I will start it off with a coin from Germany, which allows plenty of options for a follow up.

    Poland. My father's parents and my maternal grandmother immigrated from Poland to the United States prior to WWI. I visited the country in 1976 and this is one of the many coins that I brought back home.

    Glad to see we started moving east. I was afraid we would get stuck in Europe.
    Russia should open it up to several options.

    This is a fun idea for a thread. Does rule 3 mean we can never repeat a country, or just not directly after leaving the country? Seems like we could get boxed in if we can't go back to a country ever again.

    I really need to photograph my world coins. :-(

    Sure we can repeat, just not immediately. We should probably try to avoid three-country cycles, although that is permitted. It would be nice to get to all countries in the world with as few repetitions as possible, but that is not part of the rules.

    Is there a choice here? Am I right in saying Bhutan only borders China and India? So India it must be.

    Oops! Nice coin, but it violates rule three. So we are still at Nepal.

    Yeah, I didn't know Bhutan was a country. :bag:

    Looks like we need to go back to China.
