    LordM Coin Giveaway for December 2019 through February 2020

    Deadline for entries is midnight Eastern US time, Saturday, February 29, 2020 (Leap Day!)

    *** This contest is now CLOSED. Winners announced below. ***


    Hi, everybody, and welcome to my retroactive December-January-February Giveaway!

    This month there are three drawings to win (3) prize lots. Since this is a "make-up" giveaway to cover lost time, I am doing this one solo, without donor partners, but I do hope to resume the fun, traditional multi-member giveaways with the future March contest, hopefully.

    How to enter:

    There is only one easy rule this month. (Our usual Rules #2 and #3 are suspended for this particular contest.)

    1. Please include the words "entry post" in your initial post to this thread - and only your first post. You may reply conversationally to this thread as many times as you like, but if you put the phrase "entry post" into more than one reply, you will disqualify yourself.

    That's all.

    The prizes?

    Prize #1 is a gold coin. It is a somewhat modern fantasy issue, and it's small, but it's pure gold (purportedly 24K).

    *** Winner- @don oswald ***
    I got it in a member's auction here, for about $35.


    Quoting the source from whom I purchased it:


    Prize #2 and Prize #3 will each be a $25 credit for anything of the winners' choice from my "Pick Bin & Giveaway Goodies" box.

    *** Winners: @Andrew McMenamin and @OldRetiredGuy ***

    Click on the picture to see the list (which may take a moment or two to load).


    The fine print:

    • There are no strings attached- no shipping charges or anything.
    • If your lucky number (the permalink number of your entry post) comes up in the drawing at the end of the month, you've won a prize. Drawings are done with the random.org True Random Number Generator.
    • To see how this works and has played out before, look at some of the past monthly giveaways. (I've put an archive of those here.)
    • I will gladly ship prizes outside the USA (or reimburse donor partners for doing so), but if international shipping proves too costly, we do reserve the right to substitute prizes (such as with an electronic PayPal gift, etc).
    • If you are a minor, we're delighted to have you play, but please make sure you have your parents' permission to enter this giveaway, since if you win, we will be required to ask for your mailing address.

    Thanks. No need for prize picks this time, since the first drawing will be for Prize #1, the gold coin, and the other two prizes to be drawn, #2, and #3, are the same- a choice from my Pick Bin.

    Of course if you win Prize #2 or #3, you'll still get to pick your prize (from the Pick Bin page).

    I definitely have to say thank you for throwing this giveaway. I have never owned a gold coin of any kind, so I also just wanted to say entry post

    It's good to know that you're okay @lordmarcovan . Did they let you out on parole or were you pardoned? J/K, of course! ~ Chris

    Yes. Within reason. See the second to last bullet point in the "Fine Print" above.

    Basically, if I can ship them without crazy expense or customs headaches, then yes, off the prizes go, anywhere in the world. But if any of that arises, you get a PayPal gift instead.
