Fractional sub-units
« on: December 10, 2012, 09:26:39 PM »
Currencies usually have units and sub-units, e.g. dollar and cents, or pounds, shillings and pence (or just pounds and pence nowadays), where dollars and pounds are the units and the smaller denominations are the sub-units. Which countries have issued fractional sub-units, and are there any unusual ones?

British West Africa: one tenth of a penny, last issued in 1957. What could one tenth of a penny buy you in 1957?
