Coins anyone?

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas declared a scarcity of coins. They are being audited to billions of coins that are not in circulation in our country today. Well, Pinoys are just damned good in saving...saving coins in the coinbank! hehehe...and we are one of those!

We recently opened a coin bank which we got during my baby shower from one of my egroup family. It has been a tradition to every baby shower, that a coin bank will be presented as the first of our babies. Margaux was not spared from that tradition and we were delighted to receive then our princess coinbank.

We started saving on it last February and have to open it early December cause it's already full. Look how much we've got...i enjoyed counting the P5 and P10 coins.

We also opened another's our own blue piggy bank...margaux posed for a picture with a hefty P5,620!

Hi Bloggers - I have started collecting coins and stamps. Great fun but I'm always looking for good information sources on coin collecting album etc.
I'd appreciate anyone with good website information sites to let me know by posting replies to this comment.

Hi collectors.
I'm still looking for a 1 oz Gold President Mandela - A Better Life for All 1994 - 1999 gold coin.
I see one was advertised on auction at in Feb this year. (Posted on the blog at Mandela Gold Coin .
They were expecting $2700 for it - a little rich for me.
If you have a decent source of coins or info on stuff like rare coin collecting ,
please stick up the links here.
