eu

euro meme

This is prompted by someone on my friends list who was mourning the demise of the Slovenian tolar.

Count all the euro (and related) coins in your pocket - not by how much they are worth, but by which country they come from. (The full list of coins showing which ones come from which country can be found in many places, including http://www.euro.gov.uk/eurocoins.asp )
Belgium: 15
Germany: 4
Netherlands: 4
Spain: 3
France: 3
Italy: 2
Luxembourg: 1


Now, which country do you live in?
Belgium

Obviously it helps to do this meme if you live in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Monaco, San Marino, the Vatican, Andorra, Montenegro or Kosovo, but people outside those enchanted places can play too. Not quite half of mine are from the country I live in. And I haven't been to Spain in over a decade. Unlike the money in my pocket.
