Ignoring that Canada just gave up on the one cent coin and that Greece may abandon the Euro I will continue looking through my vaults. I am happy with the fact that I collected these regular coins now that they are going.
This Guatemalan type coin has had 18 different remakes the last being in 2010. It seems to still be in use and being smaller than a U.S. dime it is also probably is cheap to make. Let us hope it lasts.

This tiny coin has a great tree design. The front has a very detailed design too which amazes me since the coin is so small.
Here's the stats...
