Wondering[edit]

I wonder how many US dollar coins are counterfeit. -- Poe Joe (Talk) 23:48, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

I would guess very few considering that there aren't many dollar coins to begin with. Spacehusky (talk) 16:27, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Funny money[edit]

I've regularly seen dodgy 2EUR coins, but they're generally other currency that is a close match. Good example would be one of the Thai Baht coins which is worth about 0.10EUR and so close a match it works in vending machines. --81.242.180.246 09:06, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Brave New World[edit]

Put an RFID chip in each coin - problem solved. --85.82.179.226 20:39, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
