    I just wanted to let everyone know that I definitely do not have an addiction to copper coins. Nope, not me. The beautiful brown toning, or the multicolored patinas wrought by centuries of subtle chemical reactions? So boring. The affordability compared to silver and gold coins? Meh. The beautiful designs? The importance in understanding history? The stories they could tell, from circulating among the common people of every area? Just doesn't do anything for m-
    Okay, I confess! I love old copper coins, from pristine Roman sestertii, to Umayyad falsin with elegant Kufic script, to heavy Canadian bank tokens, Latin Union coins, and beyond. Please share your beautiful copper coins (including bronze, brass, and other copper-based alloys) so I feel less alone in my addiction.
