Coined For Money: Round-Up Mar. 4-10, 2013

Trending or more like trendy is making your own coins. Of course coins are redeemable for trades and services but these are more like medals. Here are a few examples recently to hit the country. Also some first and last of kind real coins are also here.

Redondo Beach is having their annual "coin" design contest.

The City of Rocks National Reserve is also making a "coin" for a limited run to celebrate 25 years of rocking on.

Australia is honoring military engineers with a special $1 coin.

The last penny roll from Canada sold for $6,600, that is 13,200 times face value.

I found a Canadian cent and an older U.S. nickel, unfortunately they remain just a few cents above face value.
