Friday Five: Coin Toss Edition

Well, Gals and Pals, this weekend we'll be rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and that has me thinking about coinage.

1) When was the last time you flipped a coin or even saw one flipped in person?

2) Do you have any foreign coins in your house? If so, where are they from?

3) A penny saved is a penny earned, they say. But let's get serious. Is there a special place in heaven for pennies, or do you think they'll find a special place in, well, the other place?

4) How much did you get from the tooth fairy when you were a child? and if you have children of your own, do they get coins, or paper money? (I hear there may be some inflation.)

5) Did anyone in your household collect the state quarters? And did anyone in your household manage to sustain the interest required to stick with it?

As always, let us know in comments if you play. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a> For a complete how-to, click here.

  5. Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven. Did any of you ever play that card game? It was a favorite of my grandmother and she always sang the song when we played.

  26. always foreign coins here - well we do live in Europe and US c don't work so well - seriously though Finland uses euros non of our neighbouring nations do (yet! Estonian is hoping to meet the criteria soon) - so that means we do have currency from there (coins and usually notes too)

    interesting FF thanks :)
