Coined For Money: Round-Up Oct.15-22, 2012

You can hoard you coins very well but sometimes too well. Here are some recent articles about people who hoard money and never end up using it.

A novice metal detector hunter in the U.K. found a cache of gold coins. This is likely a stash that the ancieny Romans left for the gods to secure a safe journey, if the person came back they would dig up the coins. Apparently the person never came back.

Modern digital coins are also being hoarded. Technically most are just not being used but assuming some of owners will not come back these coins are as good as lost.

I found a British 20 Pence and yes I will put it aside and never use it. Carrying these to the U.K. is not on my vacation list.
