Can't spend this

December 9th, 2007 at 07:34 pm

Today was a no spend day. I looked through my coin collection of foreign money I recieved in change or found under parking meters. I have

$16.85 Australian
6.03 US (plus a Kennedy half dollar - are those legal tender?)
2.70 Singapore
10 rupees Indian
1.91 Canadian
Stg3.50 UK
4.50 Fijian

plus coins from Austria, Falkland Islands, Samoa, Eire, France, Indonesia, Netherlands, Solomon Islands, Cook Islands, Switzerland, Hungary, Israel, Denmark, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.

Be nice if I could get to all those countries to spend the money.

    I collect money from other countries too. All I have is Canadian money, Irish money, English money, and I think some Hungarian coins. I always make other people bring me back some "local" change when they travel overseas. Smile

    Kennedy half-dollars are legal tender. They still mint them. Also dollar coins, though hardly anyone actually uses them. They're pretty much made for collectors. I know the local commuter train station does accept them in the ticket machines.

    I bought home a bunch of NZ dollar when we went ther two months ago. Not worth as much as the Aussie dollars but pretty close. We keep getting the gold coins confused to the Aussie dollars.
