I have some neighbors who speak Cantonese.  I'll have to check with them!  That is why we love our coins...you just never know what you'll learn :-)

The 'plastic stuff' from Transnistria is actually real money! I just returned from the place, and you will see the plastic money in the check out tills in the shops as well as in the money exchange offices. Not too much of it though, the few tourists that visit Transnistria scoop up the plastic coins and the locals don't really like them anyway as they look Mickey Mouse :-). For the rest the country runs on 'normal' local coinage and bank notes. There are a lot of exchange places around to change your rubles/grivnya/lei/euro/dollar to Transnistrian rubles. And back again... absolutely no one outside of Transnistria will change Transnistrian rubles for you...

The sheduled issuance of the Christmas 5 pounds coin that was going to depict a Christmas stocking filled with toys has allegedly been cancelled. Early this year formal royal approval had already been given for the issuance of the coin.

Correction: I looked it up in "De Belgische Frank" the encyclopedia issued by the Belgian Mint.

The 2 francs was issued by the National Bank of Belgium in exile, and approved for by the government in exile.

Also, the coins of Belgian Congo were also issued on behalf of the Belgian government in exile.

Those coins (Belgian Congo 2 francs 1943 and Belgium 2 francs 1944) were struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

Hi eurocoin, thanks for your swift reply. I live in The Netherlands, actually. I did not find out about the new Hercules series until after the Nemean Lion issue was sold out. Was in time to get my hands on the 2nd issue, the Hydra, though. I am also the happy owner of the 1997-2000 Hercules series!
