Yeah, I wish I never had to get rid of any of them. I still have a healthy collection, but when the price of silver went up, it was right at a time
when I was between jobs and needed to have things like milk...lol
It has happened a few times over the years.
The coins from around the world though I never sold off,
just the US ones.
I have a Japanese 2 Sen piece from the 1800's that has a coiled dragon on it, and I think that one is one of my favorite coins out of the collection
I now have.
Canada has some pretty cool 2 dollar coins too.
And Mexican coins I also think are very cool.
I think somewhere in all of the coins are some Cuban cents from the 1940's and lots and lots from Finland and Norway, Italy, and a friend of mine a
few years back grabbed me a bunch from Ireland.
Then there is the Chinese coins, which I have some that date back into 40 BC up to the 1980's
China actually had some of the most interesting coins I have seen as far as shapes and sizes.
