I have decided I'd like to research it. I just don't know what the best reference would be. I figure compiling a list of all the coins from that year would be the place to start. Would simply opening a 20th century Krause and going country by country be the way to begin? I was born in 1985 which about as boring of a year for US coins as their is...but I know there are some challenging world coins. So, it might be a fun life long project.
