I have random coins and bills.

Like I have an Canadian $1 bill and a Canadian $2 bill
FYI: these are rare because the smallest bill in circulation is the $5

I collect any coins I come across. One time on a vacation I found a coin shop that sold ship wreck coins (no they weren't fakes it was quite obvious) and I was able to buy a Chinese coin with a square in the middle, and a roman coin. They only cost me 10 bucks each, which to me was well worth it.

I collect coins very heavily, I go to shops about every 2 or 3 weeks to look at new coins that are in. I have roughly around 5,000 coins currently just an estimate. Anyone here have the world map type thing that you put the quarters with the state on back where the tail side would in the state on the map its self? I just completed mine.

Fun hobby. I specialize in middle-aged American coins, generally between 1890 and 1964. Buffalo nickels, mercury dimes, indian heads, wheat heads, morgan dollars, and especially normal dimes, nickels, and quarters in pre-1965 silver. I've found several in circulation, it takes a collector to realize that an off-color coin in your pocket change contains silver. They are clad these days, but the silver ones are out there.

Personal favorites include the steel wartime pennies, mid-1950s European coins cast in aluminum, a series 1950 $10 bill, an unknown 1844 coin from Italy, and an 1861 large cent recovered from a field in Maryland.

Yeah every now and then I find the 40% silver coins in pocket change. I also enjoy finding rainbow toaned coins, I went to a monthly coin show sunday and it was the most crowded I've ever seen it, the fact that the economy is in poor condition caused, people dont want stocks which are only pieces of paper, they want something real that they can fall back on.

I only collect coins based on what I find in pocket change. I almost completed the state quaters book and have other coins such as buffalo nickels and even coins from other countries, I have one coin that I can not identify at all. I also have a few dollar coins and a 2 dollar bill.

If my family ever goes to another country, I try to collect all the possible coins they have there in circulation. I also collect those state quarter things.
OH YEAH: I try to collect old coins too...my oldest is a penny made in 1945.

I tend to like to only collect U.S. coins. I like to fill in those coin slot books too. Collecting the state quarters is also quite fun. I find that one of things that keeps me collecting is the ongoing hunt to find the oldest coin. I currently have a nickel from 1856 but I will hopefully find older ones and make my collection larger. Coin collecting is a great hobby that can teach people many things about history and is also very fun and interesting.

I have just recently started coin collecting. I have the 50 state quarters uncirculated. I have a $2 bill. I also have a piece of money from the country of Zambia. It is somewhere in Africa

To all who collected all the state quarters, there's more to it.

If you look at the quarter, you can see a "P", or a "D". Its right below, "In god we trust".

That means it was made in either the Philadelphia mint, or Denver mint.
I just gave up collecting them all after I heard that.

I have a few Euros, and Mexican coins and stuff, but only stuff I've found.
