Plastic coins

Postby ART » Sat May 02, 2015 3:38 am

Here are the first plastic circulating coins in the world, those from Transnistria (secessionist region of Moldova, de facto Russian protectorate). As you can see they have a kind of serial number: these are the "AA series".

So interesting :D Though I think soon or early many more countries will turn their metal to plastic, it's only a matter of time :wink:
