Monkeys where a little late today as one of them had to go to the dentist, will this year please end now.
On a brighter note, the data has been compiled and a winner has emerged!
Ian_Davies Takes down the first ever Gold sov hunt on the Australian Metal detecting and relic hunting Forum.
Congratulations mate! ALL 50 he had and even the last ones that where not easy to find.
SECOND Place goes to.... Spinifex! Congrats!
THIRD and very close I must say is John_AU
A Patch has been awarded to TRIGON as well, it was very close in the minor placings and well that was a patch effort.
Now everyone needs to PM me there addresses so I can mail off the prizes and have the legend that donated the prize get it on its way to you.
I wish to thank everyone for taking part, it wasn't perfect but it went quite well and I have learnt my lessons for future comps.
Thanks everyone.
And Congrats to the prize winners.

I didn't think anyone would find all of them. Gold was a theme with some. Well done and thanks to the member who donated the pinpointer.
I think members should be given the details so they can have a look at the posts for themselves.

Good to see the pointer arrived ok. Wondering what method did you use to find the tokens? I imagine it would have taken some time.

Good on you Ian, well deserved, unlike me you must have used more than 2 fingers on your keyboard to find all those, also to the member who helped with donating prizes you deserve a big thank you as well, I think you should 'come out' and be congratulated properly......cheers Colin..

As to how I went about finding them all...  The first dozen or so i was just randomly clicking through links and looking for them, i thought that had to be an easier way than this.  I kind of noticed a theme that they were all gold sovereign or gold related posts, so I did a search on the forum for Gold Sov.  That brang up a lot of results and i went through them all one by one.
The last 10 didn't show up that way, and after again hunting around and picking up a couple i fell back on my trade (IT).  Looking at the images, i noticed they were all hosted on a particular URL, and by searching for that I was able to generate a long list of posts, it was then a case of going through them all.
The last 10 had me scratching my head for a while that is for sure.
Was a heap of fun and made me think outside the box.

Aus post are Killing me at the moment, Looks like I have my first ever MIA parcel as well. 
Unfortunately the alternatives are cheaper but they seem to use their soccer skills to move the parcels around the handling facilities.

Glad you got your goodies in the end and I hope they come in handy.

Thanks for being an active member.
