>What year were you born? Can you find a coin from that year?
Coins are stamped with the year they were made. Take a close look and see if you can find the year. Is it the year you were born? The older you are, the harder it is to find a coin from that year as coins are periodically recycled by the mint that makes them.
Make it a family activity: Have the whole family search for coins from the year they were born.
This activity promotes math skills.
