If coins can represent conflicting ideologies, which they often seem to do, then it is difficult to think of a greater conflict than that represented by Nazi coins and Israeli coins! I almost expect sparks to fly when I put these two coins together. That doesn't actually happen, of course, but it seems like it should.
I should point out that I am not an adherant of either philosphy, I am not Jewish, nor an Israeli citizen, and I'm certainly not a Nazi! Never-the-less, I do find both interesting, especially from a historical perspective. Collecting world coins is, of course, just a hobby, not a philosophy, and doesn't usually involve politics. It is a very interesting hobby and is often less expensive than collecting U.S. coins. Certainly world coins are, in many ways, more interesting than U.S. coins, coming in a much broader variety of shapes, sizes, colors and themes. You also don't have to worry about a dishonest sibling stealing and spending them and most are worth very little to nothing even at a foreign exchange office!
