5 gold coins

Someone bought something from my husband for $5.00, and paid with dollar coins. We hardly ever see dollar coins, because most of them end up in the hands of collectors. The general public (myself included) doesn't like to use them because they are inconvenient. This is four Presidential coins and a Sacagawea dollar. They are not real gold but the gold color is from a brass coating.

 

I was trying to get a solid black background, but couldn't get my lighting right. Black always comes out gray for me, and I didn't have time to experiment with the lighting this time.
