   Parents: We realize that it is hard to get young children to club meetings, especially during the school year. Below are some projects children can do to keep them interested in coin collecting.

   bluedot Write a "coin report" (like a book report) about a coin or other numismatic item that you find interesting. Include pictures, if possible, and as much information about its physical characteristics, specifications, designer, history, and any other interesting facts as you can. Put these in a binder for safe keeping.

   bluedot Start a collection of any (or all) of the following: Statehood quarters, America the Beautiful quarters, Presidential dollars, Native American dollars (these started out as Sacagawea dollars.)

   bluedot Make a birth-year set of US coins (1¢, 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, and 50¢) for yourself and/or someone in your family.

   bluedot If you or a family member have traveled to another country, make a collection of any foreign money found there.

   bluedot Collect a $1 bill from each of the 12 Federal Reserve regions. Arrange them in a nice display or binder (with labels showing which region each is from.)

   bluedot Create your own project. Find an area of coin collecting that interests you and expand on it.

   (There are many aspects to numismatics and many ways to collect. Learning about the coins, paper currency, medals, or tokens is just as important.)
