So what I have been doing for a long while is this, I keep a record (now in my iPhone but used to be in a notebook) of all the coins or even paper money that I find out in the world. I don't mean CRH or getting change from transactions or if you are a cashier or bank teller. Something you didn't exchange your money for.
What I mean is finding coins on the ground anywhere, coins left in the discard area of coin star, sitting on a table in your break room. Totally free money even if only a penny.
I do it by month and then see how much I have in a year. Also any interesting coins, errors, silvers.
For me January I have found $0.64 so far. Best coin a 1954 D Roosevelt dime
sitting on top of coin star, not even in discard!! One 1958 D Wheat cent
in parking lot in front of 7 Eleven.
Anyways I find this a fun way of looking for coins and hey if it's free it's for me. Hope you all contribute!
