H.I.P. Pocket Change

explores the history of coins. Teachers can find lesson plans on charting history with pennies, or showing students 293 ways to make change for a dollar.

Interesting Fact:

In 1999, the U.S. Mint began striking a new quarter every ten weeks to honor one of the 50 states—that is, five new quarters every year. The quarters are struck in the same order as the states' birthdays. Delaware's was the first quarter struck because it was the first state to sign the Constitution. Hawaii, which was the last to join the Union, will be the final quarter that will be minted.
