 Do you all have any suggestions for childrens money books? Any ideas for a ten year old? I read The Richest Man in Babylon when I was 22– if that gives you any idea on the lack of money/market books in my young life.

The money books I had when ten were by Whitnam, and there were slots for collecting dates of Lincoln pennies and buffalo nickels and mercury dimes etc.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for bringing back some wonderful childhood memories for me. My father passed on coin collecting as a hobby to my brothers and myself when we were children. I haven't been very active with it as an adult, but I used to love sorting through change bags from the bank in search of silver coinage or old pennies to fill my Whitman coin folders. I grew up in the 80s when you still had a chance to come across some silver ones (granted they were not in very good condition). I also have some old Morgan heads and other assorted issues. One of my favorite coins as a child was the "steel" penny from 1943.

More recently, I've collected proof sets of the state quarters series, although not for hopes of financial gains, I just love the look of a proof struck coin and find the state quarters interesting.
