Pocketful of $$ (Silver Dollar, Golden Dollars and $2 bill)

June 6th, 2007 at 11:56 am

My son has been carefully and diligently saving allowance and chore money for a Game Boy this summer.

(I am not crazy about his choice of product, but after almost 2 years of negotiating this issue, it's time has come)

Today he exchanged a $2 bill, several golden Presidential dollars and at least 1 silver dollar for a $20 bill with me.

What to do with these fun and unusual items?

    I don't know. I have them too.

    Me, too. I have lots of two dollar bills. We used to get paid for recycling cans, with two dollar bills.

    Kudos to your son for working and saving his money for his "toy."

    What a neat kid for saving up for what he wants and an even greater parent for insisting on it! That will give him a greater sense responsibility and appreciation for it. I am an adult who has no children (lots of nieces and nephews!) and a coin/bill collector as well. I would save it for your first grandchild, but not let your son know that you have done that. It will be a welcomed surprise to him and his child and the sense of responsibility will not have been diminished. Just think how you would have felt if you had received something that belonged to one of your parents when they were kids. Who knows, the coins/bills may increase in value as well.
