I have been passively collecting coins since I was quite young. I say passively because the coins have come my way (in my change or from other people) and not me seeking them out.
I sorted them today for the first time. I know I should have studied but this seemed more urgent!
I have coins and some notes from the following countries:
- Australia (of course), old currency plus the decimal coins
- New Zealand
- Hong Kong
- New Guinea (my Dad was there in WWII)
- United Arab Emerites
- South Africa
- some Euros from a trip to Ireland
With old Australia currency that existed until 1966, I have some pennies, half-pennies, sixpences, threepences. Some are still in last year’s Christmas pudding too! They are dated between 1912 and 1962.
It is great to have them all sorted out now.
cheers for now
