Foreign Coins

     I was looking for coins in my wallet as my payment for the fare of my jeepney ride this morning. I almost paid a wrong coin. It was a foreign currency coin. It is an Australian coin given to me by my classmate in MBA. She had been in Australia because here sister had been staying there and she just came home from a long vacation there. My other classmates had been asking her if she had some spare Australian coins and she had given it to them as well as to me. It is now part of my collection.
     When my brother started to travel across countries as part of his job being a seaman, I always ask him for spare coins that are still with him when he comes back. I already have coins coming from the countries of Singapore, UK, Australia, Japan, USA and etc. Recently, I came to know about gold bullion coin of USA. It is sold per ounce of the coin and per ounce of the coin is worth almost two thousand dollars. Hope in a lifetime I could be able to buy American gold eagle coin. I would consider it as a treasure that I would really keep and pass it on to my children and grandchildren.
