2002 Dominican Republic 1 Peso

Although the Dominican Republic is close by and a tourist destination I do not find the coins in my change as often as I use to. The exchange value is low and using them in meters or vending machines is not possible anymore.

At least in New York City people use to get Dominican quarters and use them to feed parking meters. Since the exchange value was low $10 dollars of was like $100 in Dominican quarters, after dealers fees, and would sometimes work in vending machines. Thanks to new coin reading technology, more expensive meters and vending machines, and easier credit/debit card usage this made large Dominican coin scams harder to use.

This one looks like a U.S. dollar coin so it may have passed as one somewhere. I got it as a quarter.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Centavos / Dominican Republic
Year: 2002
Mintage: 80,000,000
Metal: Copper-Nickel
Value: $0.50 in Very-Fine
