I'm against them. I'm not sure why people swap lots of legal tender for a lot less legal tender that's a bit funny looking.

(plus side, if you get a load of coins and arrange them in date order from most recent to oldest, you can see the queen get younger and hotter. it's like an olay advert or something!)
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I own a few actual antique coins. But I hate it when evertime someone famous takes a s**t and they get a coin to commemorate the moment. These remind me of those WWII, Apollo Mission, Elvis Presley and Sept 11 coins always being sold in newspaper ads. A pure novelty.

I'm no coin collector myself, but the Optimus Prime coin would be a treasure...
