Hi there, I was interested in seeing what foreign coins other Money Trackers have gotten in their change; I find it quite fascinating when this occurs. This list is of what I/ people I know have gotten in change.
-NZ: 5c, 10c, 20c old. Also some silly person must have spent a new 50c piece as a 10c, got one of them, and found a $2 on the road.
-Fiji: Assorted small change
-Vanuatu: 10vatu
-Malaysia: 10 sen

I got a Samoan 20c. Quite bad quality, though.

10, 20 and 50 cents, 1 and 2 Euro. Well when your bussy you don't have time to inspect the money.

I heard someone saying they'd passed off 10 euro cents as $2 for bus fares.

I got an American Sacagawea dollar last night. I knew what it was straight away, so I was happy to get it for my collection; I just swapped if for an Aussie dollar.
