    I'm pretty new here guys and gals. This is my first thread started. I was curious if anyone else carries coins with them. I acquired these three and one of them is always on me. During my daily meditation these come in quite handy.

    I'd love to see some coins and pocket clinks and where they came from.

    I need one of them coins, and the patch to go with it! It just keeps working out that every time they're available, I'm on some sort of edc grail quest & can't be sidetracked. One day, it'll work out!

    What's the significance of the coin with the angel? It really caught my eye for some reason.

    As for me, I try to carry the least amount of coins as I can without adding extra weight but I could see carrying one or two silver rounds or bars when travelling... particularly overseas.

    Sharaz_Jek It's a guardian angel in pewter my wife bought me way back when we started dating. I'm 99% sure it came from Hallmark if you're interested. I'll get a pic of the other side for ya.

    Ah.. Cool. I figured it had a story. No need to go to the trouble of getting a shot of the reverse side. Thanks though. :)

    EDIT: Looks like you were quicker on the trigger. lol!

    I always carry my Marine Corps challenge coin with the USMC seal on one side and "Chesty" the bulldog on the other. In addition, I sometimes also carry this silver dollar that has had the Indian Chief 'bumped out' to make him look almost 3-D:

    A member gifted me an OD/brown EDCF patch recently, as I already had four I was thinking
    about paying it forward with one of my extras... PM me your address and I'll send you one.

    Some great coins in this thread! I almost always carry a large coin or something else to fiddle with. Lately I've been looking at coin tops but I'll probably never pull the trigger on one. These are my current coins.
