What is its true worth?



The polished gold $2 coin lying on the dark asphalt pavement caught her eye.  She picked it up and placed it in her purse.  It slipped between her Visa credit card and $130 in notes.

The Mother held the $2 coin tightly in her hand as she hurried along the pavement to the Supermarket.  She was intent on buying two loaves of $1 budget bread for her children’s lunches.

He placed his last $2 in the slot.  Hoping for a win, he pulled the arm.

The teen girl and her friends sat texting and chatting while sipping on their caramel frappuccino’s outside Starbucks.  She opened her purse which was full of $2 coins and sighed, “I’m broke”.

The passerby threw his spare change, several $2 coins into the open guitar case, as he passed the busker.  The busker who uses his talent of singing to earn enough money to pay this weeks rent was grateful for the small donation.
