Bits and Pieces of My Life...Quarters CollectionMy poor piggie was emptied a little while ago.
I've had this piggie for as long as I can remember, and then some.
Luckily it isn't the kind that I have to smash open to get the coins out...or else I'd never want to save any coins in there!
I haven't counted my coins for maybe...10+ years?
The most coins that I have are quarters.
In the US, many quarters have special faces imprinted on the tails side for each State.
I have the habit of never using any "new" quarters because I never sorted which States' quarters I actually owned. Now that I know which ones I have, I don't have to stand in a store for a good 2-3 minutes searching for an "old" quarter (ones with just the eagle).
After this, I discovered that they released 5 special faced quarters every year for 10 years. Which makes sense since there are 50 states in total. I wish I discovered this earlier so I would have more quarters to use. But I guess this is a good thing, now I have more money saved up.
Although I have all 50 states, I'm still missing a lot of the 2009-2011 quarters...
When I get to travel, I'm going to start a foreign coin collection!
Does anyone else collect quarters or am I just strange? :X
Do other countries also have these special coins?
