COINS IN MOVIES: WILLY WONKA

Greg Heim writes: "Our family was watching the movie
"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" starring Johnny Depp.
It's a remake of the 1971 film "Willy Wonka and the
Chocolate Factory."  In the latter movie, one of Charlie's
relatives gives Charlie a silver dollar to purchase a
chocolate bar which will conceivably have the coveted
"Golden Ticket."  A close up of that coin reveals that
it is a Peace Dollar.  BTW, if you have not seen the movie
it is very good (even if you do not have small children
such as me)."
