Kids Zone: Coin Carving I – Hobo Nickels

come learn about the fascinating world of Hobo Nickels, and their special place within numismatics and American History. We'll discuss their purpose, review various carvers' works and then you'll learn how to create your own Hobo Nicke by "engraving" your own scratch art design!

Teaching kids about money the way they learn best: by doing and playing.

Through fun activities, interactive exhibits and FREE classes, children can pick up basic and advanced concepts — from how to make change to understanding monetary systems. The exhibits teach children about history, geography, trade, art, world cultures and more.
