Coins were very cool. A lot of older coins from around the world. There were a few coins from the 1800s. I bought this as a Christmas gift to get my 8 year old daughter more excited about collecting coins which we have already started recently. The only things that could be better is chest they come in is pretty small, wished it was bigger. I'm glad I went through the coins before giving it to my child because there was a coin in the bag that was like an adult gimmick coin to flip. On the heads side was an image of a woman's exposed breasts and the tails side had exposed female buttocks. Needless to say I took that coin out of the collection. Other than that, I think she will really love this collection of coins.
