Good old days! I just gave all the old coins to my boy to play with. Seems like they're relics from a troubled past. On the other hand, some of the ones replaced by the euro might be returning...

I have used Romanian Lei, for the first time, probably among the most beautiful notes I've come across...

BEF (native) and LUF (only the coins)
FRF

Still in use:
EUR (of course)
GBP (only the English version)
SEK
DKK
CHF

In my modest coin collection I also have
USD
PLZ
USSR Rouble
Czechoslowak Crown
Chinese RMB


An update might be called for.
As stated above, I used RON for the first time, this year, in the previous years I had PLN, Turkish Lira, Croatian Kuna, NOK and Lithuanian Litas (which doesn't exist anymore).

Hmm, even though it was a long time ago (2012) when I had the money, why not update my own (short) list?

Pre-euro, all no longer existing:
NLG, Dutch Guilder
DEM, Deutsche Mark
ITL, Italian Lire

Introduce the Euro here, all still existing:
EUR, Euro
DKK, Danish Crown
USD, United States Dollar
GBP, British Pound
SEK, Swedish Crown

As said before, I also have a couple of Korean Won coins and also a 10 Thai Baht coin (which can be confused with €2).
My NIG stats have finally disappeared. My EBTST stats are still available.

This is interesting topic. Trying to remember currencies have used... didn't find my coin collection to help, so I may update this later:

Trying to make this in chronological order (maybe not accurate)...

Finland / markka
Sweden / krone
Spain / peseta
Estonia / krooni
Poland / zloty
Czech / koruna
Slovak / korun?
Denmark / krone
Germany / mark
Usa / dollar
Austria / schilling
Slovenia / tolari
Croatia / kuna
Italy / lire
Netherlands / guilder
U.K. / pound (England and Scotland)
France / franc
Belgium / ?
Latvia / lati
Lithuania / liti
Switzerland / franc
Norway / krone
Hungary / forint
Greece / drachma
Euro
U.K. / pound (Gibraltar)
Russia / ruble
Morocco / dirham

27 (+2 u.k. pounds) different currencies so far... and I should have some coins or notes of earlier versions of Finnish marks, Polish zloty and Russian rubles (got from parents or other family from the time I didn't exists yet, maybe some collector value available from those)... somewhere...
