“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you” Carl Sandburg
I have a doubt
Are the coins are still popular?
I guess it’s used but rarely.
Flipping of coin is noticed during matches or when people bet.
I understand that small coins are still used in small businesses because of the decimal added to the product’s price. Otherwise I don’t think they are much in circulation.
Earlier days they were required to make a call from public telephone.
Most of the times I see the coins being thrown into the fountains or wells. If the coin landed heads up, wishes are granted, and it’s time honoured ritual.
It is said, the Trevi Fountain in Rome collects almost $4000 per day (1.5 million per year).
Now that we are in the midst of Covid pandemic, and many places still under lockdown, my guess is over the time the coins may disappear because we are all getting used to the digital currency and many avenues are available for cashless currency.
Do you miss the ‘coins’ when they disappear because of digital onslaught?
I don’t think one should worry too much.
Change is the way of life.
Because of the change and advancement, so many things got outdated and disappeared quietly.
Of course for everything we have ‘collectors’ who keep them for remembrance like any other ‘antique’
What do you think my friends about the survival the coins?
