Coin Identification

Help children learn to identify coins using these multi-sensory tips!

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Mary Jane Clark and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

This hands-on activity teaches students who are blind or visually impaired to identify and discriminate between different coins, and to understand their value. Lessons include Math and Independent Living.

A large assortment of coins (be sure you do not have any foreign coins in your collection).
