I know coin collecting is for nerds, and obviously you don't want to publicize the hobby for fear of becoming an instant pariah, but everyone should start collecting coins.

But don't do it for you. There's nothing fun about collecting coins. But hold on to them, and put it in your will that they are to remain untouched in a safety deposit box until 200 years have passed and we are all part of Best Korea.

Why?

Because this oldass mother****er just sold his coin collection for 23 million ****ing dollars. Just imagine if your great grandpa had started a coin collection and passed it down the family line to be cashed out when it was valuable. And all of a sudden all of those goddamn useless coins (seriously, **** change) are worth millions of dollars. Wouldn't you be ecstatic? I'd be ecstatic. So be a man. Do right thing.

I need every penny.

Pennies will be obsolete soon. They're worth more than $.01, so they're going to stop producing them. People have made fortunes by buying truckloads pennies and melting them down.

So in 150 years, when 80% of the population doesn't know what a ****ing penny is, your grandkids will have hundreds of 'em to sell. They'll make quadzillions (because inflation, obvs).

If my children want to be successful, they can do it the proper way like I am trying to do. Get an education and get a decent job, or if they're lucky enough to have special artistic or athletic talents they can go those routes if they're good enough. But I'm not raising a damn trust fund baby.

Just because no pennies are being produced doesn't mean they will stop being legal tender. Melting down coins that are legal tender is illegal.

I collect US quarters, halves, and dollar coins...but nothing with silver content. I'm about 50 years late to start doing that...

So is jaywalking. But when there are no cars passing by, does anyone actually give a shit?

My great grandad collected coins(he had a few thousand), the most expensive one we found was like 25 bucks, but most were only worth face value
It's over simplified, So what!

I collect coins... I get new ones every payday, and by the end of the week all my coins have mysteriously disappeared.


You get that too? I swear that my bank is infested with money pinching pixies or something.

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

I just have a money pinching family who keep insisting that I buy them stuff, like food for example.

How are you going to end up with a family anyway if all you talk about on dates is coin collecting?

That's why I specifically said to never talk about. Don't make a hobby out of it.

I want to start collecting metals. Not just coins but gold and silver in general. Instead of spending like a hundred bucks a week on weed I can just spend 50, and save the other 50. Then every few months take how ever much I have and buy that much worth of gold/silver. Since the price for both increases everyday I'm sure I can make a decent profit after even just a few decades.


I don't want to reproduce, so **** saving if for my kids I don't want. But maybe if I accidentally have some I'll give them half.
