Here are pictures of some coins: although, if you're in the United States, it would be better to get one of each coin at a bank, and let your son handle them and see both sides. There are other pictures at US Coins and Currency http://www.mistupid.com/currency/ - Doctor Sarah, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
