A handful of coins reveal various sizes, shapes, and metals. Some are new and shiny, some are old and dirty; most are from the USA, at least one is not; most have little value, but all add up to be an important basis for our financial and trading system. So, these coins are more than concrete objects, serving as tools for exchange and measurement. I think there's a parallel in there somewhere with learning and education, but my brain power is only at 'penny' capacity right now, so will continue to ponder....Naples, FL

  1. Even a Canadian coin tossed in the mix which shows the importance of international trade and relations too ;-)
