Quote from: Figleaf on March 03, 2016, 06:02:33 PMAs you know, there are a good number of Thai coins around in the euro area, because they look like 2 euro coins. Does that mean eurolanders accept the Thai baht as payment? Before the introduction of the euro, Italian coins (50 LIT if I remember correctly) would be accepted by Dutch vending machines for a 1 gulden coin. Does that mean the lire circulated in the Netherlands?
QuoteComing out of the Eurotunnel on the UK side, take the secondary road along the coast towards Hastings. Stop at the first Tesco on the left. They accept euros. Does that mean the euro circulates in the UK or is it a service for the borderers? The same shop accepted FFR in the past. Still, I wouldn't argue that french francs circulated in the UK.
QuoteTo me, the TDC coins are all gimmicks without historical value, but I am not asking anyone to agree.
