In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.

Foreign Coins

It’s been three months since my last Penny Tale posting.  WOW!  Although the Penny Angels have continued to provide coins EVERY day during that time, I’ve just been busy with some other Passion Projects and not been writing about the coin finds.

Recently Doc made a quick run to the grocery store.  He came home with 13 foreign coins from SEVEN different countries.  Can you identify which countries these came from?

These foreign coins were in addition to the 28 U.S. ones we found that day:
18 Pennies, 1 Nickel, 6 Dimes, and 3 Quarters.

Penny Angels probably don’t care much about human-determined political boundaries.  They have fun providing coins of any nationality!

So, were YOU able to identify these coins and their countries of origin?

Answer from left to right:
1)  Canada – 25¢
2)  England – 10 Pence
3)  Russia – 2 Rubbles
4)  France – ½ Franc,  1¢ Euro
5)  Netherlands – 5¢ Euro, 2¢ Euro
6)  Spain – 2¢ Euro, 1¢ Euro (3)
7)  Cuba – 5 Centavos (2)

Doc thinks the foreign coins are a sign that we should embark on another out-of-country trip soon.
