Spending Money

There are quite a few examples of legal tender printed with collectors in mind, for example a collection of "Proof" Coins honouring Sir Donald Bradman.

It's rare though to find them being produced for general circulation. Some nice examples are the Bradman 20 cent coin from Australia and the 50 cent Jonty Rhodes coin from South Africa. Also a 10 pound note from the Bank of England showing a cricket scene from Dicken's Pickwick Papers is pretty cool.

In my collection so far I have the following coins/medals Coins 'n More. Some I'm still trying to get hold of are World Cup commemoratives from Sri Lanka and India.
