I figured other people would like to know how other servers are doing, so... here's a list of how each server is doing in the Bounder's Bounty collecting!
Please report for your server here from time to time. You can check how many bounties your server has by hovering over the statue beside the barter hobbits in Michel Delving.
I will do my best to update this at least once a day, though some days of course I may be busier than others.
Now new and improved with time of the update! (use /servertime when reporting time, which is EST; otherwise posting time will be used. Estimated times marked with a tilde)
With a server now completed, now there's a to-be-filled-column with rankings! WW = Worldwide, CM = codemasters, NA = Turbine's servers before the integration of the CM servers.

Good luck to all servers!
Turbine Dev EdgeCase commented on the low drop rate and hinted at what to expect for the future here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...67#post6888067. Amlug posted about the increased drop-rate here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...87#post6890387 These drop rates seem to have decreased with the Farmer's Faire.
They drop from mobs in the landscape, in skirmishes, and in group instances of all sizes. They come from hobbit gift boxes and lootboxes as well. They drop in bundles of 5 coins to 70 coins from the landscape, quests, etc but seem to go up to 100 or 250 in the large bags from hobbit presents.
For more information on prizes, lore background, as well as a a visual graph updated roughly every 24 hours, please see https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...onations-Graph.
Good luck to you all!
