  2. EB - I've bought lots of Halloween things with my money today!
    NS - Money in America all looks the same colour so you can't tell the difference between $1 and $100 - confusing!
    EM - I lived in a country where the money is dirhams. They had an Arabic coffee pot on their dirham coin.
    HQ - I don't have a piggy bank but my daughter has a doggy bank and I raid it for bus fare sometimes!

  3. In France we use euros. We can use them in other countries too. The 1 euro coin in my purse was made in Spain and has a picture of King Juan Carlos on it.

    @EB: Bacon sandwiches & pop.
    @RM: Yes - but don't tell my wife!
    @SJ: A very good question! I don't know but I'm sure Mr Murphy will be able to explain.
    @NS: Well, the paper money is very confusing because it all looks the same apart from different numbers.
    @EM: Where I used to live, some of the coins had a big coffee pot on them.
    @HQ: I have a wallet and a big black piggy bank where I put all my loose change at the end of the day.
