Coin Collecting

I have decided to take up coin collecting. For years I've been throwing interesting coins in a pot, but with the imminent demise of the round £1 coin I realised I wanted a way to keep track of what I've got. So I went online and, after struggling a lot more than I thought I would to find what I wanted, bought a coin album. It has spaces for all the UK decimal coins from 1971 to 2017, with handy pictures so I can see what I'm missing.

I'm a bit disappointed that it doesn't have pages for coins of Crown Dependencies or British Overseas Territories though, so I have nowhere to put the neat looking coins I have from Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man. But it is a ring binder, so I can always try and make my own pages for them and put them in myself.

This weekend I'm going to go through the money I have in my house to see what coins I can find and how much of the album I can fill. I'm hoping to be able to collect all the current £1 coins before they go out of circulation in October, but I know that's a bit ambitious. I may have to start using cash to pay for things more often.

Also this weekend I'm planning to make banana bread and possibly start writing a list of my ships because it has been suggested that, following my Ships of the Noughties list, I make similar lists for the 90s or this decade. Rather than just limit it to the 90s I've been thinking that I could do a Ships of the Twentieth Century list. And technically I suppose I should leave this decade for another three years cos it's not over yet and who knows what new and wonderful ships might come along, but I'll probably do one anyway!

Also, Buffy icon cos it's 20 years since Buffy first aired in America and wow I feel old!

Are you going to post your list of ships here? I'd be interested in seeing it. I might even do one of my own if you do.

Yeah, that's the plan. I'm hoping to do a similar thing to my Ships of the Noughties list. Already I'm doubting myself about my choices though, so I don't know how long it's going to be before I finally get around to putting it up! (Hopefully not too long...)

I'd be interested to see yours too.
