Back in the day finding Dominican coins in my change was common. Unfortunately in the last few years it has become more difficult. While New York still has a large Dominican community it is not to the levels of the 1980s.
On the seedier side people use to buy Dominican quarters for a few cents a piece and then use them in parking meters. I guess the new meters do not have the same loop hole.
