    Anyone into it? My dad just found my old jar of pennies and I've been going through it. I've got everything from the 60s, 70s, 80, 90s, 00s and a few from the 50s and 40s

    I don't know the worth or importance of any coins, but I love having full sets by decade lol

    I also love the coins that have special animals on the back, like theres a nickel with a rabbit or a penny with a dove

    I like to collect a coin or two from countries I’ve been. But now I have like 4 or 6 dollars worth and I’m thinking of cashing it in and treating myself to something nice

    I have a dollar coin from the Cook Islands that has a little guy who looks like Buddha with a giant boner

    I guess that’s pretty cool. My favourite are all my Icelandic coins because they each have a different fish on it

    My mom brought it back for me when she went there on vacation, it’s so different

    Money is so cool as far as differences between currencies

    Yes. I enjoy coin collecting. Got some early 1900s coins and a bunch of the collectible sets
