    I work as a cashier and someone gave me a coin I had never seen before the other day. I spotted it right away(get lots of canadian dimes), but since I realized it wasn't canadian I didn't say anything. I just finally looked up what it is. It is a Hungarian Forint coin. Specifically a 2 Forint coin. http://www.fsz.bme.hu/hungary/forint_e.html
    On todays market, this coin is worth .0005 UK Pounds.

    If I happen to get say 150 more of these I may have a pound!
