Spare some change, Ma’am?

Change is tough to do. Photographing mine was certainly more challenging than I expected.

I don’t carry a lot of loose change in the tan wallet. It does not stretch. I know what you’re thinking but my coin purses keep small objects I tend to misplace, like my USB sticks. Rabbit coin purse up ahead.

When traveling overseas, I must make at least one transfer before I reach my destination.

United States coins, assorted [v] United States

Taxi, train and small purchases in each country require cash, so I need different types of currency. They come in handy on subsequent trips. At my favourite transfer, some ₩ (won) help me out.

Thank you for viewing. Have a fabulous week.

I enjoyed seeing your coin photos and that cute rabbit coin purse. I am not a world traveler, but I like looking at currency from other countries. The only foreign coins that I have are Canadian and Mexican ones that I received as change at retail stores.
