ON TOSSING ANCIENT COINS

Last week I wrote:

 [According to the Waverly Leader of Melbourne, Australia, an
 ancient Roman coin was recently used in a coin toss before a
 sporting match.  Is that a first?  Has an ancient coin ever
 been used this way before? -Editor]

Larry Gaye writes: I have a Byzantine coin client who
purchases Byzantine Anonymous folles (10th Century pieces)
to use for the coin toss in the soccer (football) games he
officiates.  He then gives them away to foster the hobby,
a very neat way to focus interest.
