when my hubby comes home from anywhere, he usually sets out his wallet and any change that he has...my daughter (she is 11) who seems to have a good eye for stuff was casually glancing at his change (she abolutely loves counting and sorting!) found a penny that was from 1936 amongst his change! i dont know if it is valuable, but my question is, has this ever happened to you? i once got an australian penny that was passed off as a canadian one too...

I find a lot of foreign coins, but nothing ever valuable unfortunately. We have pennies in the UK and we can also use Euros, I have found a lot of Euros and I save them up for when I go abroad and can use them in other countries. Finding coins soon mount up! I also collect coins to help me save, so when I get poor I can count my coins up and find I am not poor after all! I hope that 1936 penny is valuable for you!

I've got an Australian coin that's said to be worth $200 because of the material it's made from. Actually, I think I have 2 of them. I'd like to sell them, but no one wants to buy rare coins it seems. I had a penny that I can't find now from I think it was 1917. I wish I knew where it went, but it's not with my collector coins anywhere. I have tons of foreign coins, some rare and worth money, but coin collectors like to rip you off and tell you they're not worth anything.

We use to find wheat pennies all the time. But its became rare to finding them. I have found a $5 and a $10 bill from 1934. They say its only worth the value of it.

I guess your money also looks similar to ours. Well, the most I have run across is a buckwheat penny, which is worth two cents, and Canadian coins, which at the time were worth slightly less than American Money. But I haven't run across anything valuable really.
