Better than getting a Jamaican Dime in your change...


Unless it is a Jamaican Dime bag... Den Ah sey one. I-ree!

I got an Iranian coin once in change - same size and colour as a loonie. I noticed it immediately and pointed it out, was given a loonie and got to keep the coin. :D

in Australia we lost our 1 and 2 cent coins over 10 years ago. I still have a few. Theye are still legal tender but no longer produced by the mint. Don't see any incirculation now. Talk of getting rid of 5 cent coin.
