    These are some coins I haven't seen in normal coins from today. I go through the coin jar to see any unusual looking coins to collect.

    I have updated the post so you can see the back of the coins

      NaVi8274, Cool. :-)

      John Fitzgerald Kennedy fifty cent coins used to be pretty common:

      Perhaps they still are, but they tend not to hang around in general circulation. One reason might be collectors, but I suspect another is that U.S. cashiers regard any coin larger than a quarter as a nuisance, and hand them off to the bank as soon as they can.

      Nowadays, the U.S. government is doing a disservice to the people they 'honor' by putting their image on over-sized coins.

      Wheat pennies are becoming rare in general circulation, and that definitely is because of collectors:

      Bicentennial quarters are fun too. I don't know their value, but it is probably just a little more than 25c now...? (I have some of those, I should find out!)

      @keramikos thank you so much for the useful information I greatly appreciate it. Take care

      @AnythingObscure indeed yes I've started to collect these because I see it has two years on it which caught my eye. I dont really mind the value but still fun to collect and im glad you have some as well. Take care

      I found a Bison- Tenniel quarter one time but
      I got rid of it ,because I couldn’t find the buffalo
