Coins-World | CoinLady

I even dream about coins. Dreamed I had a choice of two beautiful Canada silver dollars. One was a 1949. The Newfoundland commem, with Cabot's ship, the Matthew. Unmistakably mint state. Shimmering mint luster, ship in all detail including the sails. No nicks, no spots.

As one gets older, one reminisces. Reading so many posts about unusual coins, I've been thinking ofsome wonderful gifts of coin I received when I was young. When I graduated from grammar school, my uncle had mentioned he saved "a bunch of coins" from his service in World War II. He was in the South Pacific.

Among the goodies in the box were coins of: Fiji in 2 different metals, Australia in silver, Japan, Philippines, and a silver 5 Mark from Germany. I don't know how a German coin got there, but it was, in nice condition.
