I have been very, very busy recently. I have been playing club soccer, doing mock trial and Model UN, and trying out for the school baseball team. Then, all of that ended, and I was bored. So I decided to do an independent research project through the school. The topic I chose for my research was coins. I was working on my project earlier this week, and I found a 3-cent nickel in my collection that I won from a grab bag in the YN auction last year. I brought it to my next research meeting, and my mentor had all kinds of odd denominations. He had a ton of ½¢ pieces, a couple of 2¢ pieces, and a 3¢ coin. I found them interesting, so I decided to write a blog on odd denominations.
