"Coins in the Classroom" Project
Though coin collecting takes up a fair amount of my time, my "real" job is teaching high school English. Over the past year, I have been pursuing an educational collection of coins to use in my classroom, where I teach 9th/11th/12th grade English. My goal, which was set last summer, is to obtain, display and circulate within my classroom a coin which is representative of each work of literature studied. Below you will see the coins I have obtained and the work or literature with which they correspond. The coins reside in a display case I constructed out of an old drafting table from my school's mechanical drawing classroom. I pass the coins around the class, so the students can have, in their hand, a tangible link to the era we are studying.
The collection is ever developing and has been financed by proceeds from the sale of personal and estate collections I have purchased from local collectors. My next goal is to obtain a proper Anglo Saxon coin (sceatta / penny) however, they are proving to be cost prohibitive.

Encouraging your students to appreciate the historical value that coins can have by utilizing literature taught in your classes is brilliant. I would be more than happy to lend any of my worldwide coins to be used in your classroom examples, I can’t imagine a better use for them than educational purposes.
