Here’s hoping I get paid decently for doing this.
Fun fact: my sister’s that weird person that collects literally anything she sees. (No, I swear.) I’ve never fully understood how collecting matchboxs and feathers (Amongst other things) will ever help apart from burning down an ex’s ego or something but to each his own right? (Let’s just for a second touch on the fact she’s extremely allergic to both of those. Now that we know she’s a little crazy in the head, let’s move on.) On a serious note, not so surprisingly, she’s very much (A little too obnoxiously) into numismatics and philately. If anyone, also interested in currency hoarding, likes to strike up a conversation with her or exchange currency or barter (?) or even just want to show off to her and rile her up, I’ll leave her links down below. Hit her up! (If she hunts you down and spears you in the middle of your sleep and no one ever finds your collection………..)
It’s not easy living with her, alright? I reckon it’s not easy being her friend either because she will drive you up the wall if she ever comes to hear you’ve been to a place she’s never been and there’s a chance she can grab a few notes and coins here and there from you. But, ever since I heard that half of her collection can pay for three of my weddings (I’m a simple woman.) I’ve been sucked into this little (Little by actual definition because she’s tiny. Miniature, if you may.) world of hers. In my defense, it’s taken such a lot of self control to not spend all the Indian currency she has. (Slow claps to myself.)
Anyway, here are a few of the currencies she’s been collecting over the past 15 years. I believe she has a few extra currencies which if you’re willing to trade with her with a few of your own (It’s got to be a win-win here, okay?) she’d gladly hand pack your package and seal it with a kiss. I kid you not.
The following pictures include currencies she’s willing to trade while some are just on here for aesthetics, ya feel? But if you’re feeling nice, she’d gladly accept currency you’d like to provide to her collection even if you don’t collect any yourself and trading your currency with ones she’s willing to give may mean nothing to you.
Side note: someone please help me with my writer’s block. The struggle is real.
Until our time meets again,
