Online Coin Course

Invite your students to learn more about coins and how to organize their collections by having them complete Inspector Collector's Coin Course.

The course is punctuated with activities and allows printing of a certificate on completion.

Writing Fun

Invite your students to participate in "Write to a Friend Month" by incorporating some of our many coin-based lesson plans that feature letter writing into your curriculum.
