Ever since my dad brought back coins back from his work travels, I wanted coins from everywhere. I loved the designs, the colors, and the holes (Japanese coins have them). I thought it was so cool. When we arrived in New Zealand, I found a 20 cent coin by the McDonald’s. I then remembered I had my wallet. So that is where all my coins from New Zealand went. Everywhere we went I was looking for coins. From wells to streets, I would look for coins. In one well I found a 5 cent coin, later to find out that this year they took away 5 cent coins and changed the way the 50 cent coin looked (see in picture below). Apparently, they’re not using coins that are below 10 cents any more. In all the coins that I’ve seen in tip cups and things like that, it seems like New Zealand changes their money a lot. I’ve seen large silver 10s, small silver 10s and 3 different kinds of 50s seen in the picture. I’m probably going to exchange all my American money in my wallet for foreign coins. It’s always fun to go to stores and ask what kinds of coins they have. That’s where I got the title for my post, from asking a shop cashier, “What kinds of coins do you have?” Notice that all the coins have Queen Elizabeth II on them. Well, that’s about it. I look forward to collecting coins all over the world and writing about them in “The Weekly Post” By McKane Andrus.
These are the 50s.
Here’s my whole collection.
