Littleton Coin Company donated more than $6,000 in coin folders to help school children discover American history and the joy of coin collecting. The giveaway took place at the Franklin Pierce Manse in Concord, N.H., during the official launch of the Franklin Pierce Presidential dollar May 20.
At the event, which was co-hosted by Franklin Pierce College and the Pierce Brigade, the new Pierce coins were handed out to children along with Littleton folders to house the coins of the series.
“We love taking part in events like this,” said Jill Kimball, Littleton representative. “It’s so nice to bring a smile to children’s faces and introduce them to a hobby they can enjoy for a lifetime.”
