Complete Set Of 50 State Quarter Holder, Big Album Map For Sale
50 State Commemorative Quarter Map Holder Album Book! Below ten great reasons I love these!(These retail for as much as $19.95 plus Tax & Shipping!)
I have a 6 month old and 2 year old and I am terrified to think what their education is going to cost. So I have been researching different ways to save money especially since the stock market and interest rates have been so flat.
One way I came up with was coins. If you are reading this you may have considered something similar.
As far as the state quarters are concerned here is what I estimate.
1.) Collecting the quarters is very easy to do and fun. I actually look forward to buying something and getting change back.
2.) I have a separate jar at home just for state quarters and everyone knows I am collecting them. So every once in while a guests to my home will throw some in....(I am already making money!)
3.) I do not feel the pinch of saving money for my kids college since it ends up being pocket change. Couple dollars a day 365 days a year 18 years = $13,140 savings and your investment can never go down!
4.) Once these maps are complete they will bring a premium just for being finished (I estimate around $59.99). Total invested $14.95 map +Average of $4.00 shipping assuming your buying more than one. $12.50 in quarters equals $31.45 invested. If sold for $59.95 you have almost doubled your money.
5.) Kids & Wife can participate in saving for college (only way I have ever got my wife to save any money).
6.) Great way to educate your kids about money and especial the importance of saving some.
7.) If they put together one map per week...that should be about one hour a week quite time (priceless).
8.) They will learn geography and history since every coin has some historic significance.
9.) Its a hobby that can make you or your kids money instead of being a very costly hobby.
10.) Unbelievable great gift, between me and my wife we have over 23 nieces and nephews between the ages of 1 and 13 years old.
Map Details "These are brand New"
Each state has the year it joined the union and each state has a color code corresponding to the year its quarter was or will be issued. There is a color chart on the right showing the years.
Measures 26"W x 16"H folds to 13"W x 16"H.
Made from ACID-FREE paper that is ALUM-FREE and LIGNIN-FREE. (The exposure of LIGNIN to air and sunlight is what turns paper yellow) (Eexcessive use of ALUM is considered detrimental to the permanence of paper)
These maps are the biggest I could find on the market and they are very heavy!
So these maps will last forever they are wrapped in green leather looking material made from very thick hard board. The holes are cut so your quarters will not fall out.
I currently display a map on my kids bedroom walls but they could be a great counter display and even better framed. The best part is you can fold them to fit a shelf with some of your oversized books.
Have a blast putting these together and if you're like me you'll love getting change now!
