The coin people aren't looking at it hard enough. It's not perfectly round. It's lumpy, it's blurry and the top is flattened. Your imaginations are discarding it's imperfections. I think with a clearer photo, it would be more obvious that it isn't a coin.

It's not even a coin-shaped rock. It's a rock that sort of looks like a coin when it's blurry and the light hits it just right.

People from NASA ?

Perhaps when we send a manned mission to Mars we'll be able to finally solve the mystery of this coin and the Martian statue. Hey, perhaps they'll find some of those invisible creatures that Vzed sees as well.

Now for example the 'coin' I got the false color one but have not found the better ones yet of that set... Maybe ArMaP has one, don't know...
I could not find more images of that area, although Spirit was on that place from Sol 1215 to 1221, and these are possibly the best images I could get of the "coin", from the L2 and R2 filters, with the levels adjusted without loss of data.




And if my measurements are correct (using the 45mm hole made by the drill), the "coin" has a diameter of 8mm (or 0.31 inches, for the ones who think decimal is too complicated
)

activating sarcasm module 1.1.01

looks like the hoaxers that have been filling our heads with all this outer space nonsence have forgotten to clean up after themselves. It just goes to show you all that we havent been to mars we havent been to the moon we canty even get off this rock. Some filmaker just neglected the hole in his pocket and has probably been killed by the PTB by now


anyways in all seriousness in the raw pictures it looks like an interstingly shaped rock and doesnt seem all that anomolys to me but that is just my humble opinion

It looks like swamp gas to me!

Either that or it was a fun land arcade and the coin was last used in a "transporter" or "Pinbot" pinball game!

LOL!

The only "other" explanation could be that it is some sort of spacer / shim /slug or a part of the core of the micro drill rig onboard.

You are certainly right... It looks like a coin.

hey wow ! thanks ArMaP


those are fantastic !

i really like the ArMaP version


well i don't know wich one of the photo's was colorized to make those that you presented but this is the Zorgon gave me to look at and that's where i got the crop picture from that i posted above.


marsrovers.nasa.gov...

it seems each photo has a different perspective or in other words they don't all show the same detail ??

is that the color version of the photo Zorgon showed me ?

ok from the pics you posted i cropped these...


this is from the red pic



this is from your version



here is the target area



what i see is another round shaped anomaly that in my opinion proves that there are more than just one round object or whatever, in this photo from the Op.....?

That is NOT a coin...Gawd!

i'llnot deny that this is exciting; but something is bothering me, and i want the OP to know that this isn't against them but just a general annoyance.
"deny ignorance" to me just doesn't apply here as much as it should...in the past i thought it would be a bad idea to post things here from skippers site that have been there for months because i figured surely everthing from his site has been posted here before.when i did post from his site, it was not about wrether "this is ancient ruins" or if "this is a coin?"; because skeptics should first understand about all the image tampering before this other stuff, i think that for anyone to believe the more "exciting stuff" they must first see how much effort has been made to obscure the facts and data coming in. But apparently that makes too much sense for ATS. TIME AND TIME again, i see someone start a thread from an image that has been on the skippers site for months...even years; and within a day it has hundreds of replies and flags out the wazoo. No wonder skeptics don't give us credit, everyone is more interested in drudging up old material and saying "we now have proof of mars civilization evidence" than discussing something that is maybe not so "amazing" but is in truth more conceivable and for lack of a better word, believable. I know this will get a lot of you upset with me, but someone needed to say it, for the last two weeks it has been VERY overwhelming all the old pictures i have seen dozens of times from other peoples sites are just flooding this site. Is there anyone here that agrees at all?
We need to try harder...all of us.

okay, sometimes i don't do well at staying on target. Go to marsanomalyresearch.com, the skippers site. This is not a new photo, and has been talked about before, quite a bit. Many people (most) who reply to these, never go to the origional site to begin with, and they bring up things that he clearly explains if you go to the origional site. Instead of presenting things that people come across while browsing the thousands of images up at JPL, we are always recycling images that have already been discussed, and people always say" WOW! star and flag this is a great find!" when anyone that is serious at all about finding the truth has alredy poured over skippers site and seen what he has(been there since 2000) We need to bring more origional stuff to the table here.

and anyone who wants to say that this is nonsense ask yourself this:
What kind of a reaction would i get if i just started picking images that are months old from MikeSingh's page and posting them up here as new material? It would be ugly indeed, i'd probaby be crucified.

Oh, ok. Well why don't you just try it? I mean see what happens. Couldn't hurt.

i'm more interested in finding out why they are lying to us about official mars data than i am in getting points on my profile, so i'd rather not. I'd never get taken seriously ever by anyone on here that ISN'T a skeptic if i did that, and since i am not really a skeptic(i believe 100% there is plant and other bio-life on mars) i want these people to pay attention if i should ever come across something special while going through the images.
