It seems as though someone designed them in a real hurry in an an hour. I guess I feel this way because I'm a traditionalist sometimes and I really miss the old coins, which were much more interesting, and also utilized the Arabic numberals. But, I'll be honest with you and tell you that when the new bi-metallic 100 fils coin came out I was just as fascinated with it as anyone. I remember how they initially had a problem with the centre coming out of the outer ring quite easily. And it soon became a fashion in our school for girls to take out the centre and wear the ring on a chain around your neck. Haha, hilarious... those were the days. If you were around back then, I'm sure you'll remember how that fashion lasted for a whole five seconds or so. Below are the old and new 100 fils coins for you to compare. (Thanks to Don for the images).
Bring back the old coins!
