I think their usage will be similar to 50 halier coins with value € 0.017 (1 Sk = 100 hal). Since value of 1 cent is even lower than value of 50 halier and value of 2 cents is only little bit higher those coins won't be used very frequently. Everybody is trying to get rid of haliers and almost nobody uses them because there are no prices like Sk 99.50, there are only prices like Sk 99.90 which are rounded the same way as in the Netherlands. (We solved it that way when 10 and 20 hal coins were cancelled few years ago.) But, 1 and 2 cents will be officially accepted as 50 halier coins are. Maybe it will change sometimes.

Well, we call dollar "dolar" (just one "l"), and in English tolar could be called "tollar" (double "l"), so there's just one real difference.

Shut up, it's Euro now, only the 'o' is the same

I've never seen a Slovenian Euro over here. I read a report in the newspaper yesterday about the flow of Euros throughout Europe. In the Netherlands, 35% of the Euros is Dutch, 23% is German, 12% is Belgian, and 0,1% is Slovenian.

I don't know, but the Japanese economy is much more volatile than the European ones were before the credit crisis. Big bounces back and down are common for a long time on Japanese exchanges. Besides that, Japan has a huge public debt, relatively much bigger than the United States or European countries. Maybe that has some influence.

it is not weak, it is extremely stabile and solid currency. and about that what you're calling weakness - it's jut imaginary. italian lira was not weak, but is still was measured in thousands

but also, when you look at amount of cca 7,3 kn for 1€, it is not that much. there was not need for denomination because after representing kuna there was not much inflation anymore. most ex-communist nations had introduced their new currency, had inflation, and then made denomination, that's why they are so "strong". we had dinar which was provisory currency, and when inflation fell, we have introduced kuna.

The Swedish government is discussing banning the 50 öre coin i.e. 0,50 SEK because it's of no use to anyone. That would mean that if we join the eurozone we probably wouldn't use neither 1, 2 or 5 cent coins. And frankly, I don't see the point of having so small denominations in cash format. We also don't round off when paying by credit card which often leads the cashier to say "that'll be 452 and 50" but when you slide your card you pay 452,67 or such.

but 50 öre is not that low amount. here will nobody damage you for that amount (except at gas staions). it is about 5 €cents. btw that is about the lowest value that i'd like to see in use. here in HR we have coins of 1 lipa (0,01 kn) but they are also now extremely rare, mostly you will see 5 lp as the lowest, but ppl hate them, also 10 lp. 20 lp is ok allready.
i remember that onc i got 1 spanish peseta back in store in Spain
