My wife recently landed a new job that involves a lot of travel. Some of the currency in certain countries she's not familiar with so we are taking some time learn as much as we can about foreign currency.
So we decided to hop on YouTube to find videos about breaking down the different types of currency for each country. First country on the list is Saudi Arabia. My wife's first assignment is in Saudi Arabia. Lucky for her the one riyal is equivalent to $0.27 in USD. So it looks like we'll be earning and saving money while she is there. That's good news.
In finding some old pennies that were worth money, I started to search the web to see what rare coins are for sale. This is some hobby! Some of these coins go for amounts that I wouldn't have thought of!
I recently started spending my Friday nights in front of the television coin tracking. I'm a thirty something rare coin collector who spends 40% of her life waiting for her next big penny break. It's all worth it though.
