Wow. According to wikipedia, there are currently 267 circulating currencies.
whoa. I thought it would be maybe like fifty. So maybe $10 wouldn't cover all the logistics behind a collection like this. But still, 267 currencies... that's around $2.67 in actual value. Someone could make a MINT off this idea.
this is kinda like my wish to have one baseball card from every set of baseball cards. Though that collection would be much more difficult and expensive to amass the pennies.
According to that wikipedia page on current circulating currencies, the most popular terms for penny is:
An eBay search for the top five terms, cent, centime, centavo, penny, centimo
results in zero results! That includes a body and description search. Maybe centime and centimo are confusing, let's delete those and try an eBay search for cent, centavo, penny, sen
Whooooa. yeah. It got one result. "Collection of 91 World Copper Coins" Starting bid $3.75, shipping $6.65. So that's about ten bucks. Well you look at that. But 23 of those coins are from Canada. boo.
as a side note, I love the English pound. They are the perfect size, thickness and weight.
You can have my pennies. Ever last one. Come and get 'em.
By the way, not sure why, but your page is now uber-wide. I have to scroll for days to get from one side of the page to the next. The reply page here isn't like that, but the home page of the random thoughts blog is.
Maybe it's just me
