a long overdue post …

with only nine weeks left before we leave india, it’s a little late for me to be posting this, but it’s been a constant issue … at a cash register in any country, it’s not uncommon to see foreigners sorting through their change, trying to figure out which coin is which.  india makes it particularly difficult.

top row: four 2 rupee coins and a 1 rupee coin. bottom row: two 1 rupee coins and three 1/2 rupee (50 paise) coins. click on the photo to enlarge.

counting across and then down, coins 4, 5 and 6 are exactly the same size, as are coins 7, 8 and 9.  all were minted within the past 20 years.
