iggymogo:

various coins and such rejected by the coin sorter
cashed in my jar of coins this morning, and these are a few things that the coin sorter rejected:
a. two chinatown fair video arcade tokens (front/back)
b. one chucky cheese game token (2010)
c. one chinese silver coin — bought this in a tiny shop in wuxi, china. probably pre-cultural revolution. i used to use this at the poker table, as a good luck charm, and placed it on top of my hand/cards.
d. five peso coin from the replubica dominica (2002)
e. five cent euro (1999)
f. five “wu jiao” coin from china (2003)
g. five cent coin from canada (1980)
h. ten cent coin from canada (2005)
i. one yuan coin from china (2008)
j. ten cent coin from singapore (1991)
k. penny from the usa (1941)
l. fortune cookie fortune — “Storms make oaks take deeper root.”
not sure why the coin sorter rejected the fortune cookie fortune. and why is ‘cookie’ spelt cookie? i keep wanting to spell it ‘cooky.’

I love this! I used to collect odd coins and such that I got from my various waitressing jobs. I got a whole stack of Italian bills one time with a note that said “sorry, we just got back and I have no American cash.”
