In Our Display Case
This month’s display feature coins collected by Alexander Ichetovkin, a student at Highland Park Middle School. Each of the coins represent a place Alexander has visited. Coins from Denmark, China and Japan have holes in them and were useful for when people used to string their change together. Also included in the display are non-coins or tokens used for admittance to bathrooms and car washes. Alexander’s favorite coins are the pounds which have Welsh engravings on the side. When translated one coin read, “I am true to my country.” Click image to view larger.
