Finland - Ege

In the first ten years of the existence of the euro a number of slang terms have emerged, though the difference in languages mean these terms are not common across the whole of the eurozone.

Looks like we are missing either "E" or "F", unless "Finland - Ege" is a 'twofer'.

I'll continue with:

Ike - U.S. Eisenhower 1 dollar

OOPS. My bad. I saw the F for Finland and went onto G just like I knew what I was doing.

Are we still playing or is everyone watching the Olympics?

I'll throw in for "J" with Jacobus, a gold coin issued in England during the reign of King James I, and worth 25 shillings.

The "Pig Rupee" from India:


Quote:
In 1911, the British government released new silver rupees in India to celebrate the coronation of King George V. Their obverses showed the king in regal robes. Among the decorations on the robes, near the coin`s base, was an elephant. Because the elephant resembled a pig, considered unclean by most of India`s citizens, the coins were rejected. The "pig" rupees were withdrawn within a month and many were melted, creating this short-lived coin, known today as Type I. The new rupees with a redesigned elephant are known as Type II.
