Especially when Christmas Days, even a mum like me just want to keep it because it is very shiny and look neat, it is very very beautiful, so I keep some and the other I give to my kids, and like me they keep it, But in the end of the day(after weeks or months) I found myself using it, or using it in paying, have you experienced that!? keeping newly produced coins or even BILLS!, when you get here in our country bills are like trash because some crumpled it and their looks and smells really sucks!, So when people here get new bills the one which is somewhat fragile and very smooth, they keep it, but they use it after weeks or months, Have you tried keeping new coins or bills!?^^

To be honest, I do not spend the shiny coins most of the time. I keep them in a jar. But there are times that spend them especially when there is nothing to spend. I feel so sorry but then if I have no choice, I will just have to let the shiny coins go.

I am a little interested in numismatics. So whenever I get a new coin I will check if it is available with me, if not I will keep it. I have many special coins both Indian and foreign with me. I don't keep a coin only for thereason it is new. If it is a new pattern or a rare pattern I will keep it, and will never spent it. Thank you.
