Found 36 Cents and a Large Spanish Coin


Today I realized I only had enough coffee to make some tomorrow. Well, that is what I call a coffee emergency! So, I walked to Fry's to get both decaf and regular. I mix it about one-third regular and two-thirds decaf so I buy both.

On the way, I saw this dime in a parking lot behind a truck. Then in the grocery store, I found the penny on the floor and the quarter in the change slot (that little extra one that has a metal door that flaps). The quarter was wedged in the slot sideways so I'm glad I felt around a little bit!

Then as I was walking home I saw the large gold tone coin sitting on a parking stop thing. You know, where you pull up and there's that concrete thing that indicates you've driven far enough. It's a large Spanish coin that reads:  Espana 500 Pesetas on one side and on the other side Juan Carlos I y Sofia 1988. After a quick search, it looks like uncirculated coins are worth about $5. Hot dog! I won't add any dollar amount to my blog but this was a nice find!

This month I've found coins from Ecuador, Mexico, and Spain! And the U.S., of course.
