    Hi all,
    Welcome to my 23,000th post celebration!

    Today I want to share a special foreign (non US) coin collection. A tenant at the building I work at started a special collection of these coins from each employee. Since the office manager knew I was a coin collector she asked me if I wanted to search through them. Here are some of the most interesting I found in the bunch..

    Oh.. Why Super Mario?.. Because of the container it is collected in.

    That's a nice pile o coins! I wonder what percentage of a random assembly like that is still currently exchangeable currency.
