I think coins get a bad rap. Yes they jingle around in your pocket, sure they get stuck in every crevice of your car, and true they aren't worth all that much. But in defense of coins they round out a cash transaction without requiring more change, they work great on vending machines; ever run across a vending machine that does not accept bills (you'll wish you had change then), and they are great for saving. Get a jar, start throwing in your coins and in no time you'll have enough for a candy bar or soda (or both). So it got me to thinking of what are the top five coins.........
Almost making the list: Nickel (even more useless than the fifty-cent piece)
