The euro coins in my pocket

Latest in a series of occasional surveys:

Belgian: 16 (36%)
German: 10 (23%)
Italian: 6 (14%)
French: 5 (11%)
Dutch: 3 (7%)
Austrian: 2 (5%)
Spanish: 2 (5%)

(the last time that I set foot in a euro zone country outside Belgium was Germany, in November.)

6 French
5 Spanish
5 German
4 Dutch
4 Italian
2 Austrian
2 Italian
1 Greek
1 Slowakije

I haven't been outside of Belgium since 2012 and then I went to England and they don't even use Euro there.

I had a look at the coins left after R's recent school trip to Paris... and had a fun time googling to find out what they were...

9 French (45%)
5 German (25%)
2 Spanish (10%)
1 Irish (5%)
1 Portuguese
1 Belgian
1 Italian

Which probably just goes to prove that Paris is a cosmopolitan city (not really a surprise)! (She went with notes only, so not due to random coins dispensed from the UK)

I love this game! One feels so Europeans and cosmopolitan, without troubling to leave the sofa one is lazing around on all day!

10 Irish (one "EMU" special edition).
4 Italian.
2 German.

... I feel so provincial and... peripheral, compared to everyone else! I hate this game! Especially jealous of the Slovak coin; never seen one of those. (They are, admittedly, rather at the opposite corner, and "new" with it.)

On thing I've noticed is that the higher-denomination coins seem to be the better travelled. I suppose this is hardly surprising, as several countries have apparently withdrawn 1c and 2c coins from general circulation, and one is hardly likely to want to stuff one's pockets full of "coppers" before going on a trip anyway.
