Small remark

It seems so natural but it's still amazing to have coins from France, Spain, Austria, Ireland, Portugal, Belgium and Italy in my pocket today.

Those Irish coins get everywhere! Did you now that Ireland is the only state to use a musical instrument as its official emblem? Also, the harp used is of mythological significance in Ireland. It is An Dagda's harp, the pre-Christian father of all the gods! And this from a supposedly Catholic country ... LOL!

it would be interesting to quantify the "internationality" of a city by looking at the coin mix of its citizens, tourists, Erasmus students etc. etc.

@Andre

I suppose they are already are doing this... At least I think I've heard something like this in the past.

@Desmond

I like your harp! ;-)

@Mathias

I searched around, but there were no Danish ones. I suppose this has something to do with politics.

Maybe we should get that euro instead of kroner in Denmark then :)

HA HA. Mathias, I feel rather stupid.

I Spent 20 minutes yesterday searching through my coin jar for a Danish coin.

Completely forgot Denmark isn't a euro country.

(Although, I think its being accepted in parts of Northern Irelnad now....)

'Completely forgot Denmark isn't a euro country like the UK.'

Feeling AND looking stupid now.
