On November 24th of 1955, on his 36th birthday, Mario Odor, Aruba ’s famous coin collector, was digging in his flower garden when he found two old coins. One of them was a one penny of 1790 and one half-penny of 1788, both of them where “Tradesmen” copper Irish tokens. This was the sign to him that collecting was his duty and he took this very seriously by educate members of his family in the tradition of coin collecting. Today his wife, son, daughters and granddaughter are still managing his legacy at the Numismatic Museum of Aruba. You might be welcomed by more..
