Business to give away coins
Placeholder Image
While Halloween is traditionally a night dedicated to children acquiring candy, one local businessman wants to spur a different type of collecting.“I’m going to be giving away coins to children,” said Joe Smith, the owner and operator of Warren County Coins. “I don’t know what the cut off age is for trick-or-treating, but I guess I will limit the coins to children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.”While the age range for obtaining a coin is not set in copper, nickel or silver, what the children will be getting is. Smith says the coins will be real – and from foreign countries.“I have about 1,000 foreign coins to hand out,” he said.
