Just thought I would share these coins from my collection. I was wondering if anyone else has these or remembers them. They were given out in cereal boxes, probably in the mid-80s. The cartoon bear is 'Sugar Bear', the mascot for the cereal now called Golden Crisp but previously called Sugar Crisp. The holders are inconveniently larger than a 2x2, so don't fit an album. Overall, so far as cereal box prizes go, they're keepers.

Interesting.

They didn't have these in Canada, but I remember in the early '70s, Muffets was giving out foreign currency; Post did it too in the early '90s. About 1972 or so, Canadian Gulf stations came out with a set of foreign coins; they had a folder for them and you got one free coin with every visit; naturally, you had to buy a certain amount of gas to get them.

Don't forget McDonalds gave out a few South & Central American coins with their "fiesta nuggets" when they were first introduced.

I have a few of these The packaging was ripped on a couple others, so I did have to free those.. now I keep the remaining ones in one of those pages that you can archive entire pages in, rather than the 2x2 pages. Good marketing ploy - "hey, if we give away free money, more people will buy our cereal! Doesn't matter what country!" However.. I bet at least a few little ones got bit by the coin bug by seeing these, which is very cool.
