Thanks, NGC! I hope the rule change will encourage others to play more often.

 

Answer: They are all metal disks having a monetary value whose names were derived from trees that can be found on the North American continent.

 

I'll try to be more serious in the future, but I couldn't resist the temptation for now.

They were all groundbreakers for the world of money and numismatics???

 

The Pine Tree Shilling was the first coin minted in New England (the States).

 

The Birch Cent was the first with dies prepared in The United States of America, also in 1792, it was the first years of US coinage.

 

The Canadian Maple Leaf bullion is the first bullion issue in the world to up the ante in purity. The Krugerrand was the only bullion coin in the world at the time, but with the boycott of South Africa there were none available. Canada filled the void with a new bullion coin. The purity was then, in 1982, refined to .9999 fine and is the finest purity gold bullion coin in production (24K)!!

 

Did I get it right? They're all firsts!
