Coined For Money: Round-Up Mar. 11-17, 2013

The St. Patrick Day's week long celebration is just about over and I did not find any pots of gold. Instead we can look elsewhere for some coin related news.

Atrium in the Marriner S. Eccles Building
The Federal Reserve has a Flickr account with all photos free for fair use. There is no cash posted just a bunch of people at their jobs.

NYC dog ate $1.11 worth of pennies. The dog was licking bagel crumbs over a box of pennies and ate the pennies. The zinc and the huge amount of coins could have killed the doggie but after emergency procedures he is doing fine. (Note to purist pennies and cents are the same thing.)

A Chinese coin from the 1400s was found in Kenya, Africa. If real and buried at the time this will add to the history of African-Chinese trade. 

I found an Acadia park quarter that reminded me I have not been in the great outdoors.
