    As some of you who have been following the development of this project might know, I have been pursuing an educational collection of coins to use in my high school English classroom. I teach 9th/11th/12th grade English at an all boys high school in Louisville, KY. My goal, which was set last summer, is to obtain, display and circulate within my classroom a coin which is representative of each work of literature studied. Below you will see the coins I have obtained. I recently re-imaged each. The coins reside in a display case I constructed out of an old drafting table from my school's mechanical drawing classroom.
    The collection is ever developing and has been contributed to by several forum members. My next goal is to obtain a proper Anglo Saxon coin (sceatta / penny) however, they are proving to be cost prohibitive.
    Now, on to the coins!

    That's cool, wish some teachers did that when I was in school.

    How have your students responded?

    They have responded quite well. I catch them hanging out back by the display before class starts from time to time and on the end of year course evaluation, some indicated they wished we would spend more time with the coins.
