Money makes the world go around, the world go around.
And when traveling inevitably some coins from those travels end up at the bottom of your pocket with nowhere to go but home as souvenirs.
A few contributions from family members, I have an international conglomerate of lost and forgotten foreign coins being held in a brass chest. Several of these coins made obsolete with the introduction of the Euro.
From the blue tropical seas of French Polynesia, to a secret 1915 coin from Cuba. All of these coins could tell a story. Italy, France, Israel, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, pieces of the world remain in my pocket.
