1. It could be rare at this point, making it valuable that way.

2. The prices of the materials used to make it have changed. At one point it cost five cents to make a penny, so they had to change the way they made the coins.

For America, that happened in 1964 for Dimes/Quarters (Anything from 1964 back are partially silver) and 1982 for pennies. I know a couple of people that hoard 1982 back pennies just because of the copper the contain. Personally, I just keep anything from 1959 back. I like silver a lot, though. Laughing

True, which is why I wouldn't be surprised if they are discontinued somewhat soon. Sad

I have one american dollar... does that count as collecting something?

My friend went to America for a couple weeks with the school, and brought us back one dollar each... to which the four of us stood there... sniffing the dollar

"so this is what America smells like? Huh..." Laughing

When shops stop doing that rediculous "€x.99" and they stop the freaking pennies I'll be glad.

I had a weird going through collections day yesterday (I'll try to get some nice pictures soon). I'll try to remember.

Coins from Canada and US (obviously), UK, EU, Norway, Germany, China, Hong Kong, and Australia. Dad gave me some special coins he had, so now I have UK coins with George V, George VI and Elizabeth with a ribbon in her hair.

I have centennial Canadian penny and nickel, sided (not serrated) nickels, quarters and loonie from Canada's 125th, four 1999 quarters and a 1999 toonie (1999 was the year Nunavut was formed, so the toonie had a Nunavut-themed design on it), eight 2000 quarters, three war-themed quarters, a Blue Nose 400 years quarter, a coloured breast cancer awareness quarter and several Olympic themed ones, for 2010 and a Cindy Klassen one from 2006.

^ Gathered through circulation.

Non-circulation sets: two different 1982 proof sets of Canadian coins, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], a Silver Jubilee medallion (?) and a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

I have a bunch of pins and inherited a few more so I'll have to take new pictures.

I like shiny things! Excited

I also have a ton of crests which I should really sew onto a blanket sometimes and show them off. Laughing Cool

I've got a few Euros here and there. Ive found a couple at our bank just laying around.

Just searched 8 penny rolls. Found 3 keepers overall. I got a 1942-D Wheat Penny and 2 1959-D pennies. Not much, but all in all I'm okay with it. Very Happy= :D

I collect makeup and nail polishes

Although I'm pretty sure most girls do that, I do have a rather impressive collection of stuff I have but hardly wear...


And I also get super defensive if anyone tries to borrow anything

I was buying lunch the other day and was given a penny from '72 that was shiny clean. Like it had never been touched before.

Today I've realized that I have a growing bottle cap collection, and I've also realized I never thought of it as a collection until today.
