Finding a coin on the sidewalk is the usual way of picking up a ‘free’ coin when going about your day.
But there are some odd ways coins will turn up, too! Like while riding a roller coaster… (yes, that happened to me!)
Here are some of the most unique ways I have found some pretty interesting coins…
- I once found an Irish 1 cent Euro coin on the parking lot of a grocery store.
- I picked up a Presidential dollar I found sitting at my feet in the Incredible Hulk roller coaster at Universal Studios.
- I found a Canadian Loon dollar while walking to a classroom on my college campus.
- Ever been to Johnny Rockets Hamburgers? They have little juke boxes at the tables that take nickels. The server gave me a nickel, and that nickel was a 1943-P Wartime Jefferson nickel!
