Piggy-Banking it up

I have this unusual hobby of collecting coins. Not your ordinary Philippine currency coins. I collect the 10 and shiny 5 Peso coins. Why? It’s because the 10 Peso coins are hard to come by and it’s harder to come across a shiny 5 Peso coin, unless it’s the Christmas season. Only my closest friends and family know that I collect shiny coins. Actually, I used to only collect shiny coins until I realized that there are less 10 Peso coins. So shiny or not, as long as it’s a 10 Peso coin, I wouldn’t spend it. My shiny coin rule stricktly applies to the 5 Peso coin though. I feel like I sound so redundant right now, lol.

Why do I collect them? Well, I save them, of course! I don’t just find interest in collecting coins, it gives me more satisfaction when I add to my savings. Who wouldn’t want more savings?

I have two different piggy banks for each kind of coin. I have this green froggy bank for my 10 Peso coins and a gold piggy bank for my shiny 5 Peso coins.

I stacked them in sets of tens and then I counted them. It’s easier that way.

I have a total of ₱3,300 worth of 10 Peso coins.

Here’s my gold piggy bank for my shiny 5 peso coins.

I stacked them in sets of tens as well. See? It’s so shiny that my flash reflected, lol!

I only have ₱700 worth of shiny 5 peso coins. They’re really hard to come by. 😦

So I’m ending 2011 with ₱4,000 worth of 10 and shiny 5 peso coins! That’s pretty impressive to think that those are only coins. So cool, I saved a lot this year and that doesn’t even include the savings I have in the bank. How awesome is that?!

It only takes determination and financial discipline in order to save a lot of money. As young as I am now (Yes, I’m still young), it’s very important to start on your savings. My parents spent a lot of effort in teaching me the value of money. I wouldn’t want their effort to go to waste, as well as all the money that I can end up saving.

I still don’t know whether to deposit these in the bank or no, especially the shiny 5 peso coins. 😦
