Just the other day, I was emptying my pocket of loose change when I noticed an unusual coin.

On closer inspection, it turns out to be a PRC coin that very strongly resembles our 1-dollar coin, being of the same colour and being only slightly smaller.

This must have been handed over to me as change for a purchase and I must have probably not noticed the difference.

When I mentioned this to a Sheng Siong cashier, she confirmed that there are many of these coins in circulation and that her management has warned them all to be on the lookout for a PRC coin that looks like our 50-cent coin.

Please pass this on to all your friends and relatives.

You need to upload the pictures to a server. Suggest that you try uploading to your gallery space in CS.
So Sori.

I am a Flickr member, but did not want to upload these images there.

Now, I have joined photobucket and uploaded them there.

Will explore ur suggestion of using the gallery space at cs.

Someone passed me a Thai coin for change too a few months ago. Unfortunately, I did not realize it until several days later. It is almost the same size as either the Singapore 10 or 20 cents coin (I forgot which).
