Our world piggy bank !

sep.gif (141 octets)

Oh oh ! A coin ! Why is it there, alone ?

It's waiting for friends !

Friends ?

Yes, friends !

Where from ?

From countries all around the world.

It's the smallest coin in France.
With it, you can't buy a lot of things.
You need 80 of it to buy a French loaf.
With a lonely one, you may only get a tea spoon of gazoline for your car.
We would like to discover other smallest coins (in value)
in countries all over the world.

If you send us the smallest coin of your country,
we 'll send you our 5 cent coin...

And we'll put yours into our world piggy bank ;o)

Here are announced or received coins.
In the next days, we're going to organize our informations about coins.
(to be followed)
