In 1060 a coin was minted in England shaped like a clover. The user could break off any of the four leaves and use them as seperate pieces of currency.

I don't care what its worth, its coolness factor is priceless. I wonder if there are any around still with all four leaves?

It really is cool, isn't it? I want one! I don't know, though, that's a looooong time ago. Almost a thousand years.

I imagine that there must have been at some time for people to discover them, unless they were written about. I dunno, wish I did!

Those should come back in style. I'd be excited as all hell if i could break my money and use it in bits. "That'll be half a penny." Yes.

Isn't that why they were called pieces of eight?

I like coins when there's lots of them and they add up to lots of money. ;)

I think we need more interactive money like that. Or at least they should try for some more interesting shapes. Circles are just boring. Why not have square nickels or octagonal quarters or something of that nature? I mean, we have to spend our lives obsessing about money all the time, so I think it should at least be esthetically pleasing.

I agree! I think that would be very cool. I know there have been some interesting shapes in the past in different countries. I wish we'd get some here in the US.
