i found an old coin!

i was at my in law's house when i found this....

coins

it was a squared-1-cent-coin and i am very sure that this coin is not from this era!
it is a vintage coin!

and i googled 'square coins' and i found this;


the picture is from allthingsborneo.

Filipinos may have in their pockets their 10-sided 2-peso coins and their 5-sentimo coin with a hole in the middle. The Japanese and Papuans too have hole-in-centre 5-yen and 1-kina coins respectively, but we in British Borneo and Brunei used to have SQUARE 1-cent coins during British rule. Younger Borneans may not know that, so when I rediscovered some of these square coins in my drawer I decide to show them on this blog. People in British Malaya, that is Peninsular Malaysia to us now, shared the same currency with us at that time. - cited from allthingsborneo.


and oh My God! during british rule? how cool is that...! i just know it, like 2 seconds ago??
and what did i do with that coin? oh i remembered, i just tossed it away and i think that it might be rolling somewhere under the bed or beneath the carpet.
