The essence of our existence on this planet is survival – the struggle to lead secure, productive, and gratifying lives in a constantly changing and complex world. In times marked by rising unemployment and cost of living, a fragile economy, and global competition for limited resources, the quest for survival becomes even more challenging.

Wolfe calls for reinvigorating a sense of community and thus an sense of obligation to the larger society.

Referencing Jacques Derrida's idea of 'differance', The Coin Collection is a look at the 'two-sidedness' of one's self and society. As noted in his previous work, Of Philosophers and Fools, C.J. Cala claims that it is here, between the opposing words that people speak, that a sense of truth resides. Using simplistic sets of rhymes and a picture story to explain himself, Cala asks, moreover, how is it that man, between a metaphorical 'heaven and hell', can find a sense of harmony, making The Coin Collection a work that is as mysterious as it is philosophically insightful.
