At some point the connection "got lost", i.e. the English did not understand it any more, but the word stuck.When you posted the image of that Latvian coin, I was surprised first - after all, mushrooms can be found on many medals (token of luck) and postal stamps. Surely there must be more coins with mushrooms? Hmm, maybe not ...Christian
