Before I present the winners, I would like to give you a brief history of MPCC. MPCC began in November of last year, when it was an unofficial contest in the Free Discussion section of the forum. The idea was to vote for the most beautiful coins among coins submitted by Numista members from their own collection. The coins were nice, but nothing (both in quality and numbers) compared to MPCC II's coins. MPCC was still a very popular contest, so I decided to hold MPCC II. During MPCC II, Xavier created a separate category for MPCC on the forum, and from the beginning of MPCC II, apuking translated it into French.
Now, here are the category winners .
