I purchased a lot more coins than this, I just listed the ones I thought were worth sharing.

Another thing I noticed that was different than other weeks is there were a lot of Denmark coins. I was surprised at the amount.

Out of all the coins I purchased, 45 different countries were tallied, the most I've ever got before.

I also wish my grandfather who I did not know and my father collected coins.


Level 5

what do you mean by 20-cent bin? the coins cost only 20 cents each?


Level 5
