Ætheling Posted July 6, 2005 Report Share Posted July 6, 2005 Just been looking through the minute remnants of the coins i'd had in my foreign junk box that i sorted out months ago. The vast majority went to Labmom. The small bagful that remains are mostly Spanish, alot i got from my father are dated in the 1960s and 1970s upto 1980. Then there's a gap until 1989 and these later coins are the ones i brought back with me after my last trip abroad in the summer of 1993. Now i remember clearly spending these smaller coins, the 25pta with the hole through the middle and the 5ptas and the 1pta. The coins upto 1980 though are bigger. The question is when did the shrink the coins and when were the larger coins of each denomination demonetised? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
