Coins for Special Occasions

From the Oct. 30 Numismatic News eNewsletter

Do you purchase coins for holidays, birthdays, or other special occasions? Which one(s)?

Here are some responses from our eLetter readers.

I purchase a 1-ounce silver coin from around the world for the birthday of each of my children and grandchildren. I also purchase a 1-ounce silver Christmas round for all of them each year.

Yes. Sometimes I purchase them as a gift for other people.

I have given a silver Eagle to each member of my immediate family since the series started. However, this may be the final year of that tradition. With rising spot prices and absolutely insane premiums, they are getting priced out of my pocket.
