So I collect money from around the world. Like litteral some of the strangest places. Once I found a 20 dollar bill from Zimbabwe in the gutter of my street when I lived in a town of less than 2000 people in the backwaters on the great plains of Northern Colorado. I've also gotten money from various people I have known through my college and who have stayed with relatives through foreign exchange programs. I have money from Taiwan, Argentina, Mexico, Spain, France, Germany (before the Euro), South Africa, Russia (when it was still the USSR) and places like the dominican republic, the moldives, sri lanka, of course Canada (but who cares about their money) and litterally over 50 other countries.
On top of that my collection includes coins that are not just from distant spaces relative to me, but distant in time too. I have probably a thousand coin collection (mostly pennies) of various US coins. The oldest I can recall is a 2 1/2 cent coint from I believe 1890. I'd have to check for sure but its made of zinc and features James Polk as the president. Some of the coins are also from the depression era. Those silver dollars with the statue of liberty on them from like the 30's and even early 1900's. Its probably a pretty valuble collection, I would estimate that the face value is probably less than 1000. But all together some crazy collector might pay more for them. Oh and of course you can't forget the 2 dollar bill and the silver seal 20 dollar bill that is suppose to be redeemable for 1 oz of pure silver.
Now I have no intentions of selling these things. Personally I find them facinating. Coins made from matterials from around the globe, touched by countless people spanning close to a century and a half of time. If I wanted to travel I'd be a coin from some distant country. Over time you'd go many places.
So what this brings me to is the magickal value of such coins. I probably could make my own variation of "I Ching" coins if I wanted to. And I do have some ideas. But what I am wondering is if any of you can think of any specific occult uses for these coins.
I like to hear any thoughts at all.
