Some people collect playing cards, some people collect fridge magnets, some people collect postcards. For me, I collect coins from every country I’ve been to.

I guess this makes me a long-term forex investor as well. 😀

These are probably the most interesting coins I have, dating back to 1976, and in denominations of $10 and $50. The one at the bottom depicting a sitting lion is the $1 coin of the first Singapore coin series. I wonder if these are still legal tender? lol

Collectible coins from the US, including penny and quarter presses, which you get by flattening coins and imprinting new designs on them.

This is the special collection from the Harry Potter series. The large golden coin is the Galleon, the silver one is a Sickle, and the small one is a Knut. The coins are plated in 24-karat gold, silver and copper respectively.

Some people have asked me why I like to collect coins.

The most obvious reason is that it gives me a little souvenir from each country I’ve been to. Also, I find it quite amazing to hold a coin that is older than me, and wonder how many hands it has passed through.

Some coins also provide an interesting perspective on the country. For example, in my collection of the US quarters, there are 50 different designs, with each depicting a different US state, showing the year the state was added, and what the state is famous for. So it sort of provides some insight into the history and geography of places.

Lastly, it gives me a “hands-on” feel for my forex trading. 😀
