Online games for young collectors

The U.S. Mint recently released its newest educational game, “Counting with Coins,” which teaches basic math concepts and coin identification for children in a fun grocery store setting.

Counting with Coins is one of six new games on the bureau’s redesigned website for children and educators, which re-launched in January 2018.

SIX NEW GAMES

Other games include:

  • “Hoop and Darts,” a challenging game rooted in Native American traditions that allows players to choose different settings and play modes;
  • “Plinky’s Presidential Challenge,” a fun trivia game to learn the order of the U.S. presidents;
  • “Coin Memory Match,” a classic matching game using the coins of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, which features U.S. national parks;
  • “Making Change,” an art game that allows users to design their own coins while learning about coin terminology; and
  • “Peter the Eagle’s Coin Drop,” a fun flying game that asks players deliver liberty loans by flying a First World War-era plane.

The games can be played as part of a classroom lesson or for individual enrichment.
