What does the Tooth Fairy give in your house? Login/Join 
Knowing is Half the Battle

Our 8yr old son just lost another tooth tonight. He cracks me up, he's overly sensitive and worries about the slightest pain inducing thing, but when those teeth start coming out, and wiggling he will stop at nothing and yank them out himself. The tooth fairy in our house has always given Eisenhower dollars, that's what my parents did for me and luckily 10 or so years back I happened to get 200 of them at a US Bank for face value.

Question:
What's the going rate for the Tooth Fairy in your house?

Choices:
Eisenhower dollar
Kennedy Half dollar
$2 bill
Susan B Anthony dollar
"Gold dollar" (President, Native American, etc)
1oz American Gold Eagle!
1oz American Silver Eagle!
1 share of Berkshire Hathaway stock
Other

Tooth fairy here at Casa de Mike, delivers “golden doubloons” gold colored one dollar pieces. ABout a decade ago I bought two rolls from a friend at his gun store after I was telling him how The Tomminator had lost his first Toof.

My buddy had these rolls in his cash drawer and said how it would be cool for him to get gold doubloons. And that is what we have done since.

I said the Silver Eagle.

It is, literally, an American Silver Dollar. Wink

My son lost his first tooth earlier this year. I fished out five gold dollars from my change bowl, polished them up nice and shiny with some Nevr-Dull and that's what he got. Had him put the tooth in a padded ring box on his nightstand and swapped it for the coins once he was out cold. The look on his face when he opened the box was worth it. I told him the tooth fairy had given him a coin for every year he'd had that tooth, and that's what she does the first time. After that, you get a gold coin for each tooth.

I was out of town for the second one and my wife give him a few sorry-looking paper dollar bills instead. Roll Eyes

I need to get a roll of them to keep on hand.

My oldest lost his first tooth right when we got up to our summer home and the smallest denomination I had was a $20. From then on, it was $20 for the first tooth and $5 for each additional tooth.

Same thing happened to my sister in law. Her sons tooth came out quicker than expected.

$1 bill. Looking at those options, a dollar coin would have been cooler though, but being half way through my tooth fairy career I can’t switch now.

I received a number of SBA's, Eisenhower, and Peace dollars, but the best was the 1890 Morgan (CC) that was left to my grandfather when his father passed, and was given to my father when he lost his last tooth, and I have now given to my daughter. If my daughter looses it, I'll probably loose it.

My son is 50.
Back in the day we gave him a crisp $1.00 bill for every tooth lost.
It had value in the 70s.

Couple of bucks. But the Tooth Fairy has to leave it down stairs. My son now 7. When he was about 4 watched the movie "The Tooth Fairy" with The Rock in it.

Ever since then when he looses a tooth. The thought of Dwayne Johnson sneaking into his room in the middle of the night freaks him out! Big Grin

Wow, should have invested in tooth futures! When I was a kid, it was a dime at first, then sometimes a quarter when I wasn't losing many any more.

It varies from pocket change to $20. Tooth fairy is getting old and forgetful.
