Nope, we don’t mean having an interest in coins will take you places for free, but it will definitely raise your interest in knowing about other cultures and countries, and that will build your interest in wanting to see the place you have been reading up a lot about. This interest will work well with your subconscious and can lead you to many foreign lands.
Everything has a story. Every coin also has a story. With your keen interest of knowing more about the symbols and pictures engraved in each coin, you will come across many stories, which you can tell other people in social gathering. People are interested in knowing interesting and lesser known facts from the past.
