Coined For Money: Round-Up Feb. 25-Mar. 3, 2013

All events eventually comes back to coins, okay maybe not but the following stories did so read and enjoy.

Sede Vacante or Vacant Seat is the time when there is no Pope, Vatican City issues special coins with this crest. They are allowed to make special Euro coins during this rare time and yes Sede Vacante coins are rare, sell out fast, and are hoarded. 2 Euro coin limited to 125,000, 5 Euro coin limited to 10,000 in silver, and 10 Euro coin limited to 5,000.

The world's least valuable coin is from Uzbekistan, 1 Tiyin is worth 1,999 U.S. cents. Despite that fact most countries want these small change to keep inflation low and help charities.

Libya is slowly replacing their old notes with new ones, lots of change but the lack of Muammar Gaddafi.
