A scallop-edged coin from the Bahamas Despite what we are used to here in the United States, coins do not have to be round to be minted and spent.

The name comes from the distinctive wavy shell of the scallop, a sea mollusk similar to a clam. This coin shape may also be referred to as wavy-edged, flower shaped, or sun shaped. Coins with 8…

In the United States, our smallest circulating coin is the dime (10 cents). Its diameter is 18mm (a little less than 3/4 of an inch), which is only 1mm smaller than the penny (1 cent). The size difference is not easily noticed, which is why the dime is a different color (silver) and has a reeded edge to make the 2 coins more distinguishable. While the dime seems pretty small, there have been plenty of modern world coins which are even smaller. The main reason to mint a small coin is, of…

Ancient Chinese "cash" coin Americans, when asked about coins with holes in them, probably picture the old Chinese "cash" coins which are featured so prominently in Chinese-style decor. These coins had a square-shaped hole in the center, with Chinese characters around it. The United States has never had a coin with a hole in it, so it's not something we're used to seeing.

Square coins are my favorite unusual coin shape. Being from the United States, a square coin is very different from the money I'm used to - it seems quite exotic, the epitome of a "foreign" coin. The square shape seems somewhat impractical - it doesn't roll, and it seems like getting a vending machine or coin sorter to handle square coins would be problematic (though I'm sure that countries that have square coins have these problems figured out). Because of their shape, they are easy to spot…
