MY FIRST NON COIN
I started collecting coins when I was 10 years old in 1959. Anything round was a coin to me. After a while, I learned not every things was a coin. There was a different between coins, tokens and medals.
I don't remember where I saw an advertisement selling Alaska "gold dollars," but I thought they were neat. For a couple of bucks, I could have a "gold coin." Featuring the Alaska state seal, I thought it was a nice looking "coin." Even though this is a common item from the year Alaska became a state, I I still have it in my collection.
