    Entry Post. I do have gold, but these Indian pieces are amazing. Thank you L.M.

    I have never owned gold, it's never been in the budget but I think it would be cool to have some, so I'm in!

    I do have a gold coin (a US one dollar gold coin my wife got me for our 50th anniversary). I also happen to have a coin from India (and am totally clueless about how I came to own it). But I don't have a gold coin from India. Thanks to LordM for another exciting and very generous giveaway.

    Entry post - I have a half sovereign that my gran gave me, but it's the only gold coin I have ever had. Would love this teeny tiny thing. :joyful:

    Thanks LM for the opportunity. :D

    I have owned a gold coin before. Kind of... Turned out to be fake, seller did not want to refund, fought him on it, and eventually he acquiesced. Yay.

    I am entering for my son who does not own a gold coin. I am hoping that, in doing so, I will rekindle his interest in coin collecting.

    Thanks, Lord Marcovan.

    Nyatii I like running w/scissors. Makes me feel dangerous

    Just a few weeks ago passed on buying a tank of gas for my truck and instead bought a gold coin. So, I'm in the one entry only pile.
    Thank you Lord Marcovan of Robertson Shinnick Manor.

    I'd like to enter. I've never gotten my hands on a golden coin before. The ones you've shown are very beautiful to say the least even for their small size.

    Been a while since I've traversed these parts. I was wondering, is LordM still hangin around? Lo and behold, not only are you, but you're still giving away beautiful freebies to boot. Your generosity knows no bounds my friend!

    I'm in the 'never have' category of gold owners. And I'd love to throw my hat in the ring. Best of luck everyone!

    That's the spirit. Glad to hear it. There is a lot of divisiveness in other corners of the web in this day in age. I asked myself why did I drift away from CoinTalk? Only positive vibes around here. So I'm sure I'll be seeing you around!

    Last call for entries! Time for the drawings soon!

    Though there's still nearly two hours left in September, I'm gonna do the drawings about two hours early. I don't think we'd have gotten any last-minute entries and I'll be busy on October 1st, so here we go...

    First, the drawing for the "have nots"- the folks who have never owned a gold coin before. I kept pulling random numbers until the first such person came up, and that lucky number was #40.


    Post #40 was by @ryanroscheck !

    COINgratulations, @ryanroscheck. Now you do own a gold coin, albeit a tiny one. I shall need your shipping address, and ask that when you receive the coin, to please post here to let us know you received it.
