Found Money Blog: 13 Cents Plus a Hong Kong Dime

This afternoon I went to the library to pick up some books on reserve. I didn't find any money there but I also went to Target and found a penny and a dime on the floor! 

Then I went to the grocery store and found a penny in the parking lot on the way in to the store and once inside I found another penny on the floor and a little coin in the tray of the coin machine. It is a 1990 coin that reads:  Queen Elizabeth the Second with her profile on the front of the coin, and on the back it reads Hong Kong, 10, 1990, ten cents. It also has a Chinese symbol. I'll have to get my son to tell me what it says. I just love finding foreign coins!

As usual I won't add this coin's value to my found money total. And I couldn't easily find the value of this coin in American dollars. Anyone?

Have you found any coins or bills lately? Let us know!

Oh, I posed today's found money next to this cute little guy. My grandson gave him to me. He called it a pop eye penguin. When you squeeze his head, his eyes pop out. Really funny and cute!
