Tales from the Coinstar

Collecting Tips | Haney

As of late the reject bin has yielded more than just some spare pocket change, though if I am to be honest I am on the lookout for a little more than jingle in the pocket. What really brings a smile is a foreign coin or better yet something with silver in it. The latter specimen being rarely seen, but imagine my surprise when in a handful of reject change I spy a Canadian quarter with the queens original portrait that does not appear to be nickel. Upon turning it over in my hand to see the date it is confirmed being 1963 not only did I find something foreign, but something silver in of all things a reject bin in a HEB Coinstar in the Heart of Texas. That was not the only unusual coin in that handful of change I also found a coin that traveled much further in distance if not in time from the United Arab Emirates. It is a Dirham and I would suspect made its way here via a soldier though not knowing the date I could be wrong in my assumption, maybe someone reading this blog can help in the regard by clarifying the date.
