Any Numismatic items on your Christmas tree?

Does anyone have any Numismatic items on your Christmas tree? I have a 12 piece bronze set of the Franklin Mint 12 days of Christmas. They are in clear teardrop holders. I have had the set for about 50 years. I have only used them a few times. I decided to get them out this year. I also have a clear plastic ball with shredded U.S. currency inside. Anyone else?

    My wife loves gorillas so for the past 2 years I bought her the Conga silver gorilla rounds and an air-tite ornament capsule.

    It's a fun idea. We're putting ours up on Sunday, maybe I'll sneak something on there and see if anybody notices.

    No, nothing on the tree... and nothing numismatic under the tree.... Other stuff for sure... always 'stuff' under the tree... Got to put it up this week... We just put up a small tree...presents usually hide a good part of the tree. Cheers, RickO

    The Delaware Quarter ornament and its Massachusetts counterpart, for my wife, has been on our tree for two decades. It's a Hallmark card store thing.

    As for under the tree, I hoping for two Roman denarii for the emperors Didius Julianus (193) and Pescennius Niger (193-4). Those who collect these coins know that those are a couple of tough ones.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Cool idea! But I tell you what I won’t be adding is any ornament dated 2020 to our family tree. 2020 was the worst year EVER for us!
