Is the most logical conclusion really a coin here guys? I mean, there can't be a trillion more logical things that it possible could be? Like maybe rover tool marks or something?
I realize saying it is a coin is just for fun, but it does illustrate that people are more apt to jump to the least likely conclusions about things such as this at times, which contributes to the community looking a little far out there and paranoid.
If I had to bet, I would say maybe tool marks. If I didn't have to bet, I would say it is a fossilized alien footprint (they do not require toes for balance due to their upper body configuration and weight distributions...shame they are extinct now....) There, do I fit in now?

As I said on my first post on this thread, if my calculations are right and judging by the size of the marks made by the RAT, the "coin" is some 8mm wide.
