Coins with other comments
My Only coin, so far, that is Tri-metallic.
Whatever happened to those immensely popular US Steel Pennies? They became Belgium 2 Franc coins.

This coin is the same size as a US Quarter. Many vending machines can not distinguish this coin from a quarter, much to the chagrin of vending machine operators.
