To mark the start of a new financial year, we look at some of the weirder-arsed coinage of the world. (I swear only bankers without frontiers know these twelve.) Our challenge is to choose a currency per continent – Asia, Africa, Europe – and make a clue involving wordplay only.
Play all you like, coining clues for all twelve of course, but come ‘deposit’ time on Thursday afternoon, only one per continent can be nominated.
Use a monetary alias, please, and offer financial advice if you see an opportunity. Bank your three clues between 1-5 on Thursday, by declaring your final 3-coin shortlist in the forum. Then on Friday, we assess the market and vote 3/1 for each continent, emailing to DAMail a total of six votes.
Clear as krona? Let’s meet the moolah:
ekwele (Eq Guinea)
Happy conversion, and may the best merchant banker win.
