Keep the change

Every where I travel I keep getting these coins and I have no clue what to do with them after a while. I did give away some coins from places I have been to those who collect them. But the rest is with me. I don’t even know how much I have in these coins. I am sure they will become antiques after a while. But what value will they hold?

Why are we still dealing with coins when everyone is trying to go paperless (even though I am not a big fan of using credit cards everywhere) ? I feel that these .99 paise/cents/pennies rates should be done away with. I remember my mom having those 1 paisa and 2 paisa coins from their times. All she did was to use them during Vishu kani (a new year festival down south) as a display thing and for worship. That reminds me of the small red postbox shaped coin box I had while growing up where I used to save my coins out of the pocket money I used to get (which wasn’t very much anyway). I wonder when and where I lost it. My nieces have got a Panda coin box which is very cute. But I think I like my postbox better than this cute one.

    I’m so bad for keeping coins from all my travels. Looks like you have a few interesting ones! 🙂

            If, when you’re ready, you need some help deciding where in Canada to go, just let me know. I can give you a general idea where to find what. 🙂
