I remember hearing (without remembering the source--possibly Woodrow Nichols) that from the early days of South Gate, JRS would regularly (always?) take all of the coins out of the offering baskets and keep them for himself.
His 'coin fetish' apparently started early on, and until 1965, dimes, quarters, half-dollars and dollars were 90% SILVER. After 1965 there was NO silver content in any of them, making them far less valuable.
Copper pennies were around until 1982, making them far more valuable than their copper-plated zinc replacements.
Coins 'by the pound' means relatively nothing. The year of their minting means everything.
The PURE COIN of the REALM is and has always been LOVE, which has no commercial value here, but is the 'medium of exchange' in HEAVEN, and doesn't weigh down your pants pockets or other means of transportation.
LOVE is the only 'medium of exchange' that one would want to 'accumulate'.
