Image All about coins and their values
By jon on July 15, 2013

Coins are neat, especially if you are a coin collector. There are practically worthless coins, and then there are coins that are worth millions of dollars. Let's look at coins and their values.

I thought there should be another thread, specifically for those of us who have no coins to trade.

I found this to be a fascinating article. I had no idea there were so many variances in coins over the last couple hundred years. Thanks for the great information, Jon.

Know what I really can't stand?? All those State quarters. I like the feel of the old ones, especially with the ribbed edges. You could know it's a quarter without having to look to be sure. I sometimes have to decide whether it's a quarter or a nickel before I spend it. Is it just me?? Confused

Well you can tell by the size of the coin. And all nickels have had Jefferson on the front since 1938. Smiling

This sometimes happens to me as well. All the time I find nickels where my quarters are supposed to be.

I know what you mean, Nancy. Maybe I'm just used to them and don't notice anymore, but it seems the state quarters aren't around as much as when they first came out.

When my son was born, my SIL gave him a piggy bank with pennies from the year he was born. I did the same thing for my daughter. When the state quarters came out my MIL bought us a map. So for years I collected 5 of each quarter ~ one for the map and 2 for each bank (just in case the kids spent one, hopefully they would keep one).

What a geek!

Very interesting article.

So, Julie, did you get all the states? I never collected them, but I heard people say that some of the states were scarce.

Great idea about the piggy banks and coins from their birth year.

My thing to do for newborns was to save the newspapers from the day they were born. So much fun looking at them a couple of decades later.

Yup, I got them all.

DH has a Time magazine from the week he was born, he bought them for our kids too. It is fun looking at that stuff. I have formula boxes for each of my kids. They are filled with favorite rattles, cards etc.. from when they were infants.

Off topic ~

I ended up putting other coins in those banks too. Silver dollars, Susan B Anthony dollars, loonies & toonies too.
