More About Play Money Coins

Our silver/gold coins include 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2, and can be bought in either bags or jars. The money set (coins and notes) includes $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 notes. If you are looking to buy in bulk, try using our massive coins and notes tray which comes with individual compartments for each currency.

In the classroom, play coins and notes can be used alongside the calculator cash register to set up a pretend shop. This encourages kids to think creatively about selling a product, using clear communication skills, and having fun when applying math. 

Activity Ideas

Think Bigger, Spend Bigger

To teach your kids about the basics of trading, try giving them a daily budget of pretend coins along with some toys. They can assign reasonable value to the toys and then practise trading each other's toys for play money.

Count to it!

In a group, try mixing all different kinds of coins into separate piles for each player. On three, every player must sort their coins into piles based on currency and colour. The first person to finish sorting their money is the winner.

Fraction Action

The notes are a great way to ask fraction-related questions. For example, what is 20% of this $80 note? When setting up a pretend shop, students can apply discounts to products as a way of incorporating fractions into the game.
