My father used to collect coins when he is still alive, he always hid it in his drawer wrapped with scotch tape. I was so amazed of how serious he was collecting old coins. But it was stopped when he passed away, and the coins only remains hidden in a box. If only my father is still alive I might give him a personalized coins in coins for anything, inc. I am sure he would be very happy about it. Sigh, my sister was not able to keep the old coins, it could have been his last memory for us to remember, it was misplaced or something and totally gone when we move from places to places.
