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 Finds

Finding foreign coins is much easier (and cheeper) to do right here in Southern California versus all the hassle of travelling to another country.

Walmart Super Stores claim to have almost anything a person needs.  Today that held true.  Doc and I were travelling the 360 miles to go see his brother for our annual visit.  We stopped at Walmart – Doc for a coffee and me for coins.

We emerged with:
One United Kingdom Coin – a 5 Pence
Five Mexican Coins – two 1 Peso coins; two 50 Centavos coins; one $10 Peso coin
Two Canadian Coins – both Quarters
Nine U.S. Coins – seven Pennies; one Nickel; one 1964 Silver Quarter!

North America includes the countries of Mexico, the U.S., and Canada.  Today we found coins from all three of those.  Fun stuff!  Plus there were an additional 12 Pennies and 2 Dimes found at other stops on our drive.

It’s a Small World After All … There’s so much that we Share …. Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide, it's a small, small world.
