    I think that I can spot an old Austrian coin. Looks like there is also either a Danish or Swedish coins here too plus some American coins.

    Seen in my contacts’ photos. (?)

    Hmm that 10 cent on the left is annoying me. I have so many randomly scattered through the house but I can’t think where it’s from… Hong Kong??

  5. dichohecho says:

    Keith – Nothing Danish or Swedish I don’t think. (most have the country written on) There’re two American ones but one has been altered somewhat.
    Wermibug – 10 cents on the left isn’t Hong Kong, but you’re in the right Ocean…

    Oh and the Bulgarian coin, the face up side says "Balgariya". The value is a number of Stotinki though.

    There is the solution to the world financial crisis. If everybody got out the old coin jar, rolled up the coins, and hauled them off to the bank, the economy would instantly improve. Those coins are money that is not circulating. I’m not talking about collector stuff. I mean the jar, box, bowl, drawer, bag, or whatever container you use for your spare change.

    For years, we have been aware that coins won’t buy much anymore, so why wear out your pockets carrying them around? So we dump them in a jar as soon as we get home and forget about them.

    So let’s get rolling on this. First you get some extra folding money in your pocket. You will be providing employment for people at the bank, and even workers at the companies that makes those paper rollers.

    So get those idle coins in motion. Spend the paper money that you get in exchange. Let’s get the economy working.

    To Howard,

    Coins can be sold on eBay for much more than just circulation. Besides, Coin Collecting is a hobby. I spent hundreds of dollars on mine (I have a lot, but coins are cheap) and I feel good about it. I feel… accomplished. The economy can wait… right?

    …besides, many of these are in UNC condition. That elongated is 1.50 right there. 50 years from now these coins could be 2.00-5.00. Changes over time…

  15. Howard33 says:

    Hmmmm. 50 years from now . . . . I’m 76 now, so I guess I’ll just leave that to my heirs. Actually, I have been collecting coins since 1946, and the collection is more than I can lift. But much of it is US cents, going back to the 19th Century.

  16. marhawkman says:

    I got bored of collecting just US coins long ago. Doing sets of stuff like Turkish Lira and Canadian pennies is more interesting.
