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? :-)

And, since they've now all been identified, this is what they are (listed left to right in four rows):

10 Central African CFA francs (worth 2¢), 5 Thai baht (15¢), 20 Czech korun (97¢), 20 Qatari dirhams (5¢), 2 Hong Kong dollars (26¢), 10 Moroccan dirhams ($1.13), 5 Japanese yen (5¢), 100,000 old Turkish lira (6¢), 10 eurocents from Italy (12¢), 5 American cents (er, 5¢), 50 Emirati fils (14¢), and a British pound ($1.44).

Hey, with all the values, it would be interesting to put them in order and see which countries make coins that are MUCH more or less elaborate than it seems like they ought to be, given how much they're worth. (Hint: Hong Kong and Japan have a big idea of themselves; Great Britain is actually quite humble in this respect.)
