My wife’s parents recently went on a trip to Europe - the Netherlands and parts of Italy / Rome. They asked about ideas of things to bring back for us / Ben. I linked them to the Penny Collector website and brought up the idea of bringing back some elongated cents for Ben’s penny book.
They got him a couple of pennies for his book.
I’m guessing they used Euro Cent coins for the press because they’re slightly larger than the ones we’ve been getting / making here and they just BARELY fit into the slots in the book. It was areal squeeze.
So, yeah… It’s a family thing now and I think that's going to stick.
I guess we'll see if I end up with a coin collector or an exonumia / elongated cent collector.
