I actually don't know what to say. Are these for machines? Are they worth anything? Is there a price book? I know nothing and never seen or heard of them never mind the country. I don't think it's something I would follow thanks anyway.

Interesting. As everyone else says, I hope this doesn't spread, especially to the USA!

That us an unrecognised country. No serious state would ever go that way.

Boy, I sure hope the USA mint doesn't go to this. I agree that it would seem that counterfeiting would be rampant!! Thanks!

That sure sounds problematic. A new 3-D printer could probably make an easy counterfeit? Not too mention the anticipated life of the plastic coin being very short ( smashed, burned, melted, scraped, etc. etc. etc.). I guess time would tell!
