On my trip this year I amassed quite the collection of coins from around the place. I always like to keep one or two coins or a small bank note from the places I go, so I'll often pick the one I like the most early on and take it out of my wallet so I don't spend it. But then I'm really bad at spending all my change before I leave so I inadvertently end up with way more than I wanted once I'm home. Especially after I've emptied all my bags and found all the extra coins that found their way…


Use your left over foreign coins as magnets to use on fridge or board. Great way to display momentos from your trip.
