3 of 7 - Coin Obsession
While I was in the USA last month I developed two coin related obsessions.
I was constantly searching for penny squashing machines to squash souvenir pennies....and the other obsession?
Collecting US State Quarters like the ones above. I already owned the coins for New York and Florida, 2 states out of 50. By the time I left the USA on May 28th I had taken that number up to 30 out of 50 states.
Whenever I was given quarters in change I would check for state coins. I would take them back to my room in the evening and check to see what ones I did or didn't have and would put the doubles back into my wallet to be spent another day.
I had hoped to get closer to the full 50 states, but 30 is pretty damned good for only 19 days of travel.
It was kind of fun. I even had people in my shared accomodation checking their coins to help me out.
(A few of these coins need a good clean.)
Here's the list of Quarters that I picked up along the way.
Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Minnesota, Massachusetts
New Jersey, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina
South Dakota, South Carolina
West Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming
So the states I am missing would be.....
Illinois, Iowa, Idaho
Maryland, Maine, Michigan
Arizona (Release Date: June 2nd 2008)
Alaska (Not yet released)
Hawaii (Not yet released)
All of our coins have the Bahamas Coat of Arms on the front (where once was the Queen of England's bust). Each coin has a unique backside (or tale side). Some of these coins are newer (in design) than others.
