This is my first post, so I hope it goes OK...

I have managed to collect a lot of coins from different countries. I was trying to figure out whether to throw them away or to display them somehow, and came up with these magnets.

These are made of Chinese coins and some selfadhesive magnetic sheet. Very easy:)

Very clever! Bonus is that the peel-n-stick magnets don't damage the coins so they can be used later.

I agree!  This is really outstanding!  Makes a display on fridge easy, but what about a metal cookie sheet, or even that metal or magnetic paint--it''s a great idea

Thanks guys! I'm really glad you like them Smiley

@Buttermilk: Thanks! I'm going to check those out. The magnetic sheet I used is kind of expensive, so I'd love to figure out a cheaper option. I still have a lot of coins...
