Interesting Fact:  Florence, Italy was the first city to mint its own gold coins in 1252. The fiorino became known as the florence, then the florin.  ( http://www.fleur-de-coin.com/trivials/world-coins )

  1. The hues and the depth of the engraving on the coins is fascinating. I think you have a lovely pile of coins there; and the 1911 & 1936 quarters would be something to hang on to for a bit. Interesting to me how the Canadians have their “looney’s and tooney’s” and the are widely circulated, yet our Kennedy Silver dollars and Susan B Anthony silver dollars are “held on to ” in the US. I hold on to the odd “wheat penny” for some reason. When I worked in a place where I handled coins I always had my eye out for the “buffalo nickles” too. Thanks for a great shot.

  2. Just to add some fun from the far side
    Money it’s a gas
    Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
    New car, caviar, four star daydream,
    Think I’ll buy me a football team

    Have a nice day. 😀
