    Coinstar Geography Lesson

    I was out at Wal-Mart today, hating life, and while leaving the store, caught the Coinstar machine out of the corner of my eye. Since I was next to it, I checked and there were a few goodies waiting for me. No silver, but a geography lesson instead due to the range of countries involved. There was a US cent, 2 Canadian dimes, a one dollar coin from Jamaica, a Euro once cent coin, and a 1 peso from the Dominican Republic.

    Congrats on the finds.

    I've done really well with CoinStar machines over the years. I hit my local machine regularly.
    I've scored at least 20 silvers. One of my coolest finds was a secret service lapel pin.

    Gotta' love the old CoinStar...

    Grabbed some coins from a different Wal Mart Coinstar. I got 18 cents in modern clad and a couple Mexican coins, a 1 peso and 10 peso. Nothing super, but more to add to the collection.

    I also have found coin star machines very productive lately.

    I had another strange find in my local coin counter. They replaced the Coinstar with some other brand. A week or so ago I found a little over $15 in modern change at the one in WalMart, but today, mine was stranger. It was 6 coins. Two were Mexican 1 peso coins, which is not really surprising, but the other 4 I could not identify. I finally figured out that they were from Morocco. They were 1, 2, 5, and 10 Dirham coins. No pics right now since I am lazy.
