Lots and lots of Coins By Margarette S. Reid - Book Review

Library | TheHobbyist

A very good book for beginners!

This is an interesting and funny book for children. The narration of the book is about a boy who does coin collection with his dad.

To begin with, it talks about some things people used to use as money such as camels, tea leaves, cowrie shells, salt, etc. It then talks about coins from around the world, the different materials used to make coin (copper, aluminum, gold, silver, electrum, tin). It also talks about the different types of US coins, coin rubbings.

It discusses about few commemorative nickels such as “Westward Journey Keelboat Nickel”. It shows how Lewis and Clark travelled by Keelboat to explore the west. It also talks about “Westward Journey Peace medal”. It shows the peace medal they gave to the Indian people they met. It also talks about two dollar coins. The first one is the Sacagawea golden dollar and the other one is the Susan B Anthony dollar.

Overall a good book for beginners.
