Coin quiz!

While sorting through our change jar, I found coins in 12 different currencies. How many of the countries can you identify? (Click for full size.)



Bonus question: which of these coins is worth most? least? :-)

Yes indeed, that's 10 Central African CFA. We got it in 2007, so I guess the new coins hadn't hit Gabon yet.

The Qatari coin is 20 dirhams, not 25. :-)

The Turkish coin is indeed 100,000 old lira, worth 6 cents.

You're right about the most and least valuable, but the *second* most valuable one is actually the brass-and-nickel one, which is 10 Moroccan dirhams (worth $1.13). The Arabic indeed says المملكة المغربية (Kingdom of Morocco) on the left, but it's hard to tell in this picture.

I was SURE it was 20, but I found MANY sources that insisted it was 25 and there had never been 20 dirham coins.

Since that one's no older than 2006 (it has the new Qatari emblem) it should say the amount in normal numbers on the back. Now I'm curious!
