There are a few dealers in my area that have those 4 or 5 for a dollar foreign coin bins, and I must say I am hooked on British large Pennies. Copper value, old dates, different kings and queens. I grabbed one hundred today for 15 bucks. Dates range fron 1860 to the 1940's.

Anyone else love these things?

The two pence coins? I just picked up a box of foreign coins and there were a bunch of these in there, along with some big canadian penny coins and a bunch of other coins from a bunch of countries. Do you collect foreign coins or just the big penny coins?

I just started getting into Large Penny coins from the UK, Ireland, france spain and Austraila.
I also collect the Canadian Large Cents and five cents, as well as all pre castro Cuban coins, and Old german coins

And of course silver from any country!

some of them pennys are worth more than others depending on the dates and condition!they make great bullion as well.the rarer ones attract a high premium!

the old pennies... I have loads of them which I have found on the beaches. also found some nice silver (earliest 1890's).. I also collect decimal pennies before 1992 as they are 98% copper.. 2.40 worth of 2p pieces is a kilo.. BARGIN!

My grandfather brought a bunch of these back with him from the War... pennies and half pennies from 1890s - 1940s. I love 'em! :)

I just picked up 80 from 1861-1930s for 15 bucks! some of the old victorias are a bit slick, but the date is clear. Seriously cool coins. One of the last cool type you can get cheap from over 100-150 years 0ld.
