Summer is winding down and it is now “Back To School” for most children. A great way to help your child enjoy school is to add a hobby that is both fun and educational. Coin Collecting promotes both fun and education and is something you and your child can do together.
Collecting coins can help children understand history, math and geography. What better way to remember when Abraham Lincoln was born by remembering the first Lincoln penny was minted in 1909 to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Lincoln’s birth. Younger children can learn the 50 states by collecting U.S. Statehood Quarters. Coins are also a great math tool, teaching addition, subtraction and decimals.
Coin collecting can also assist in teaching organizational skills, the value of money and a sense of pride in ownership.
