The journalling on this layout is my son's speech that he gave to his 2nd grade class this year! He had just given a similar one at Cub Scouts and it went over so well that we asked if he could do it in the classroom! This is him in front of his collection at the start of his speech!

"I just gace a speech about my coin collection to my Cub Scout Den and earned a Belt Loop & a Pin for it! Now I am going to share my speech with you."
I just started a coin collection at Christmas. Numismatics is a word that means the study or collection of money, coins, and medals.
I have 182 coins in these storage folders and coin mounts, but I also have many more that I need to store, including these foreign coins. The coin folders help protect my coins and keep them organized. But they are not the best way to do it. My State Quarter binder is better because it has plastic covers to protect the coins from dust and dirtiness. Itís OK that my storage isnít perfect because itís just a casual collection of coins that have been used.
When I get a new coin, I check its date and mint mark (P for Philadelphia or D for Denver) in my checklist book to see if I need it and I mark it off. If the coin is really dirty or grimy, I clean it with dish soap and dry it with a soft cloth. Then I put it in my folders.

Thank you all! Isn't it funny though? For some bizarre reason his coin collection was right behind me in my craft room??? Now, I must admit, I'm a bad mommy... his checklist and dime folders weren't handy and I didn't have time to check the dimes for "need" before gluing them down! They are all shiny and very recent... so hopefully we can find them again if we need those ones!
