Usually it's 1 and 2 and 5
but some countries do try 1 and 2 1/2 and 5
or even 1 and 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 and 5 (Have anyone seen a 1 1/2 coin before?)

The 3½ face value on the Frankfurt coin is due to the fact that this is a dual denomination piece. :)  Well, 2½ makes sense as it is half of 5 which is half of 10 etc. But where do you stop in the other direction - 5, 2½, 1¼ ...?  Venezuela had and has that 12½ céntimos denomination for example which I don't find very practical. But at some point you need to break that half-quarter-etc. line.
