I Was Robbed, I Was Robbed

Well, not in any appreciable way. And probably not by design. And my inner numismatist is happy about it at least.

At Five Guys not too long ago, I ordered a burger like I usually do. Paid in cash and got my change back without thinking much about it. After all, change just goes into jars when I get home, and quarters go into a pile to be used at the car wash.

Except that one of my quarters wasn't a quarter. It wasn't even an almost-quarter from Canada. It was a Korean 100-won coin (scroll down for it), worth just a fraction less than 11 cents.

So I was cheated out of about 14 cents in general, and 25 cents in actual usage, but I get to add another coin to my collection. I'll have to check whether the existing coin I have is series I or II (other countries tend to update their currency more frequently than we do here) to know just how much my pathetic little collection has increased by.
