WHAT TO DO IN RETIREMENT? THIS AUSTRALIAN BECAME A COIN DEALER

Dick Johnson writes: "When a coin-collecting government
worker in Brisbane, Queensland retired his wife recommended
he become a mail order dealer in coins. Aided by eBay the
76-year-old did just that. At the time of this article, May 25, 2005,
he had 103 coins listed on the Internet.

Ken Leitch sells about 85 per cent of what he offers. His Internet
name is "ehcnumis." His best sale to date: $20,000 Australian for
a rare silver token.

The article contains Australian idioms "penny drop" and "silver surfer"
