This is my first instructable, so any feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

Several years ago, my father left a coin collection to my sister and myself.  We discussed what to do with this collection and both agreed that we wanted to take a representative sampling of it and find a cool way to display it.  I made it my mission to create something to do just that.  I wanted to give it to her as a Christmas gift.  I have since made several different versions of this display, including a type set, state quarters, Lincoln bicentennial pennies, and the Westward Journey nickels.  Most of the photos are for the State Quarters display.
