It has been a very long time since I am sharing some Kids Project with you. The last one is in 2010; Kids Project: Different shape coin. Today, I want to suggest a complete year coin set for our kids project. This is the most practical and easy way for you to teach kids about coin collecting. Before we start, let I explain to you what is exactly a Kids Project. Kids Project is a suggestion from me, the best and cheap way to start collecting coins for your kids. This coin hunting project will only cost around RM50 to RM100 and you don't need to start with a big budget. You can give them a small budget every month and go out together for their coin hunting trip. It help you teach young kids to start joining this hobby.
For a complete year coin set, you can start it with any coins in circulation that you have and a list of that coins minted years. For the list, the best way is to buy a book or you can try Google them online. What is a complete year coin set? For example, we have 20 sen in our Malaysia coin, you can try ask your kids to start collecting any 20 sen from 1967 until the current year. There are some year that the coin has not been minted. This is when the list become handy. For a list of Malaysia coins mintage, you can visit my blog; www.malaysiancoin.com. Just look under the label, "Senarai".
For Malaysia coins, they might be some coins that are not easy to find anymore. Most of the key date coins especially 1 sen 1970, 10 sen 1971, 20 sen 1970, 50 sen 1969 etc has been missing from circulation since many people already start collecting them before you. You might need to spend some money to help your kids to buy that coin. Try to give them RM50 a month budget for them to find the missing coin. It also will be a great way to spend time with your kids when you bring them to any nearest flea market. If they cannot find any coins that he/she are looking for keep that money so they're enough budget to buy some of the expensive coin like 10 sen 1971 in the future.
You also need to buy some coin holder and coin folder for their project. You can buy the coin holder for around RM12 for 30 holder in a box (one box for one size). You need around 10 boxes with suitable sizes for all the coins. Later, You also need coin album and coin pages. I bought mine for RM52 complete with 10 folder. You need at least 20 coin pages for a complete set of Malaysia coins. To keep that coins, you kids need at least another RM250 for the coin holder, coin album and coin pages. All of these item can be bought if your kids can manage their budget well. For list of available dealer that are selling these item, you can find it in my post; Malaysia Coin Dealer.
Wish you can make my Kids Project-complete year coin set idea into good use. Coin collecting can be a fun thing to do with your kids, if you know how to start.
