The E-Sylum:  Volume 11, Number 3, January 20, 2008, Article 34

WHAT TO DO WITH SOON-TO-BE OBSOLETE COINS?  MAKE A MONEY TREE!

Dick Johnson writes: "Malaysia one-sen coins are soon to
be abolished (reported here in E-Sylum (November 18, 2007,
vol 10, no 47, art 26).

One writer is alerting craft-minded citizens in that country
to make a coin receptacle box sprouting a tree and use 25
coins to hang from raised relief leaves. Writer Teresa Wong
gives instructions to take a facial tissue box, cut apart
and paint it with salt paint to give it texture resembling
leaves on the tree at the back of the box.

She does this to save a handful of the obsolete coins to
show grandchildren of the future to prove they actually
used such a low-value coin.
