A Coins True Value

The person who coined (no pun intended) the phrase "Money can't by you happiness." was obviously not a coin collector. Or paper currency for that matter. What I mean by this is quite simple. I worked with a gentlemen for the past three years until his retirement yesterday. While I do not know him as well as I would like, a conversation about Jefferson Nickels came out of the blue as he talked about finding a 2004 Keel Boat in pocket change. As he spoke of showing it to his daughter and the discussion of coinage, I saw something in his expression which the word joy alone could not explain. Now myself, being the hoarder that I am, selected one each of a Philadelphia and Denver mint from all four issues and presented him with them the following day. The look I received magnified that feeling mentioned from the day before two-fold.


One undeniable fact remains. The true value of a coin, even the most common, worn out and passed over will far exceed that of even the rarest of coinage.

Hi you don't know if my recent history. In May of last year I had surgery. All is good. In September of the same year I broke my hip. The elevator was being fixed the strain to much it fractured again. Both times I took out my cell phone were I store my pictures of my coins. I had no pain in fact i had a smile remembering when I made my first buy. Anthium. It gets better the W quarter program was going on. A little girl came by my bed and said would you like a Danish. Why not I had a dollar they were .75 cents. She put my quarter on the table . It looked shiny sure enough San Antonio W. When I'm down I look at my coins. Found some I forgot about. Yes they can bring a smile. I enjoy my coins. Even more I like to share them. Thanks

Every coin tells a story and they are all priceless.
