Turning Our Coins Into Play Money

When I lived in Indonesia, where inflation was rampant, the smallest denominations of the rupiah (the national currency) were coins that seemed to be made of plastic. They looked and felt like play money. I was convinced they would float on water until experimentation proved otherwise.

It won't be long before American coins have the same heft.
