Quote from: Figleaf on July 11, 2010, 01:50:31 PMNot coins, but I used "tourist yuan" in China when I first went there. They were very popular, because they were convertible in other currencies. I kept a set, but traded them away. I presume the reason for issuing the Cuban tourist money is the same.

Quote from: chrisild on June 26, 2010, 12:43:54 AMNot sure about Timor Leste, but Ecuador and Panama do have "their own" coins along with USD coins, and they are actually used there. (From what I have heard and read, that is.)Christian
Quote from: Figleaf on July 13, 2010, 08:58:21 PMThis is known as a fixed exchange rate. China is an example. Look here for more information.Peter
Quote from: E.M.U. on July 12, 2010, 12:18:05 PMI've just been speaking to a couple who work in East Timor. They said that at first US bills and coins circulated, then the Timorese introduced their own coins. The US coins no longer circulate, and of the Timorese coins, the one centavo coin is now rarely seen.
Quote from: E.M.U. on July 13, 2010, 08:48:45 PMSo now we know that, of the three known dollarised countries that use their own coinage, Panama and Ecuador also use US coins, but Timor Leste does not. Do we know of any other dollarised countries that use US dollar bills but circulate their own national coinage?
Quote from: scottishmoney on July 22, 2010, 03:36:55 PMPanama also circulates its own coinage which is the same dimensions and composition as USA coinage. Occasionally I will find a Panamanian coin in change, usually a centavo or 1/10th Balboa.
Quote from: Numismatica on July 22, 2010, 04:11:55 PMThere's no monetary agreement between India and Nepal as such,but Indian currency is widely accepted (and is legal too) in Nepal.
