Found 7 U.S. Coins and 1 Mexican Coin

Today I walked up to Sprouts to get some fruit and vegetables. On the way there, I walked through a gas station and found a penny. Then I walked through a Starbucks drive through and found another penny. As I left Sprouts, I spotted a dime between two cars. 

Then I walked for several blocks and decided to check out the McDonald's where I found 2 pennies in the drive through and 1 penny next to the door to go inside. 

Then I walked through another gas station and saw what I thought was a dime but it turned out to be a Mexican 50 peso piece. I won't count it in my found money total. Later when I was almost home, I found a penny on the sidewalk! 

That's a total of 16 cents plus the Mexican coin. Yay!

One of the pennies is a 1944 penny (a wheat penny). Love finding those!
