    Since I've had a little more time on my hands, I have decided to work on a project I started about a year ago.


    It's sort of a cross between a history and a birth year project. My objective was to start with a coin from my birth year (1966) and to go backward (with dated coins) in increments of 100. (i.e. 1966, 1866, 1766, etc.).


    I managed to go back 500 years, and had to stop with 1566. I know there are dated 1466 coins, but they are hard to find, and way out of my price range for this project. The coins I have purchased are not expensive, and not top grade. Most of them were under $10 each. I didn't choose any of these coins for any particular reason. I chose coins that were affordable, and that I thought would look good for this project.


    The second part of my project is to build a framed plaque to display these coins. I am still working on the plaque (insert), and have just applied the first coat of poly to the frame.


    The Coins:

    1566 Hungary, 1 Denar

    I will post more pics when I complete the project.
    Feel free to share your recent projects.

    Stay Safe everyone !!!

    Neat idea but kind of a small collection. Why don't you fill in the 50 year coins? You could find a super 2016 and have your first coin going forward.

    Great idea. I someday will want to do that idea starting with my birth year 1961 and going backwards. That frame is beautiful. I look forward to seeing the coins in the frame when it's done.
