As I recall France had 20 franc notes and 20 franc coins in circulation at the same time.  I only ever received one of the latter in change.

The GB five pound coins do very occasionally circulate - about as much as a Canadian 50 cent coin nowadays!

When I visited Guernsey in 1999 and 2001, I found you were more likely to be given their pound notes than their pound coins- same in Jersey, which I visited in 2000. I never received any of the Guernsey 2 pound coins in change so had to ask for some at the bank to bring a couple back for collector friends.

Guernsey and Jersey were the only places I've visited where there were three coinages circulating. UK, Guernsey and Jersey coins were all accepted as legal tender. The UK does not accept Channel Island coinage as legal tender, even though their coins are of the same value as the UK's. However, since they are of the same size, colour and shape, a few slip into circulation unrecognised here in the UK, as occasionally do coins from the Falkland Islands and Gibraltar.

The Dominion of Canada also had both 25c. banknotes (commonly called 'Shinplasters' because of their size) between 1870 & 1923.The 1870 & 1923 25c. 'Shinplasters' almost never seem to turn up.I've never seen an 1870 issue,but I have seen 2 examples of the 1923,of which one is in my collection.

I attach a picture of my rather tatty 'shinplaster' given to me by an old chap in the village where I lived for 7 months in the Province of Quebec back in 1962, along with a 25 cent coin that circulated at the same time and which I got in change at that time.

Tony,
  That 25c. 'Shinplaster' is quite a nice one.The 1923 issue is not an easy one to find.

The 25c. coin was a very nice find.The King George V coins are very popular.There's a fair few scarce coins in the series,such as the 1921 5c. & 50c. coins,the 1925 & 1926 5c. coins,& the 1929 50c. coin is an extremely hard one to find.

Papua New Guinea is the latest country to have both a banknote & coin of the same denomination in circulation - the plastic 2 Kina banknote is circulating along with a commemorative bimetallic 2 Kina coin.

Have a look through http://www.bankpng.gov.pg .

Interesting, the depiction of the coin on the note.
