Biscuit coins

Posted on Wed 16 Mar 2005

I had this strange thought the other day: why are coins always made in that "flat cylinder" shape? And what would happen if they were roughly flat, but took on a more 3-Dimensional form?

What if coins were in fact modelled on biscuits - i.e. smaller, scaled down replicas made of metal? I'd make the following biscuit allocations:

1p - shortcake

2p - digestive

5p - rich tea

10p - nice

20p - hob-nob

50p - bourbon

1 Pound - custard cream

2 Pound - jammy dodger
