Series Coil Question

AC circuit, at 8khz, 10 volts:

If I have two coils with varying induction values, One about .1 henry and the other about 6micro henries. If I supply an ac voltage wave will the amperage rise and fall the same in both coils, meaning in phase? Since its series doesn't the amp rise and fall have to be the same.

And does that differ if I run them in parallel?

Actually I was hoping for a yes or no type answer. The link doesn't really get into the answer I was confused about.

The question was whether the amperage in series was different thru the inductors as measured inside the inductor itself. I think it was saying it was the same, right?

Although I couldn't really see there being a difference unless some charge was building up somehow.

For a series connection the current will be the same.

For a parallel connection the voltage will be the same.

Feel free to read about kirchoff's voltage & current laws (they're very brief and simple).
