Coined For Money: Round-Up Nov. 12-18, 2012

Making, taking, and shaping coins is all the rage this week.

Japan won a contract to make Bangladesh 2 Taka (2 cents U.S., enough for a small lunch in that country) coins and that may be a beginning for the huge India region coin making contract.

Minneapolis had its last coin only parking meter pulled. The new meter do take coins but are popular because they also don't need to take coins. Also they are solar power so less maintenance.

A Delaware coin dealer who doesn't have a license to scrap metal is fighting the law even though it is been around since 1921. (Ignore the comments on that linked page since they are delusional trolls)

A man uses hand tools to make rings out of coins. For about $50 this guy will spoon your silver coin.

I displayed my small collection of dollar coins and threw in a bit of history.
