Coin collection

Numismatics is the study or collection of currency, including coins, tokens, paper money, and related objects. While numismatists are often characterized as students or collectors of coins, the discipline also includes the broader study of money and other payment media used to resolve debts and the exchange of goods.

While my husband and I are nowhere near anything like numismatists and neither do we¬†buy silver coins we do have keepsakes from travels and some old interesting Philippine coins. The ones you see above are from Cris’ collection, which in my idle time I have decided to polish.

The problem is during my idle time, something came up — Angry Birds for the PC! And now these coins will remain, for the meantime, in an unpolished state. Shame on me, I know. Excuse me while I go shoot birds at some pesky pigs …
