"We Win When We Work Willingly"

Post by henrysmedford » Tue Oct 07, 2014 9:57 pm

My wife was telling me that this coming Monday at my youngest son home school co-op they are studying Morse code. I told her about the Canadian V nickels and how the rims have in Morse code stating "We Win When We Work Willingly" also it is the only coin that has Latin , English and Morse code on it. And it is made out tombac the same metal used to make Roman helmets . The neat part is that I have the right amount of 1943 one to give to each kid. I will post on how it goes. PS the school in in the USA.

Hello henrysmedford

In addition to the coin you're going to give them, why not also give them a paper copy of explanations Morse code which you will find a copy here.

NOTE: This is only a suggestion
