      If you try to drive the geartrain from any one gear the last gear in the train will try to turn the driving gear opposite the way it's driving.

            Heat it up and then freeze it and see if the centre pops out. Seeing that you stole the idea from Canada's two dollar coin I thought you should know about this. The question is is each part worth half the original?

              No the outside bit is worth more because there is more surface area

              You can't press the new ones out as they have a lip in the inner bit, Early ones you could and some even fell out hence the design change.

                You might be on to something there Evan. Make the center-part removable and you would be easy to give £1 in change for a £1 item.

                    If those little circles are supposte to be gears, they had better find a
                    different artiste' to do the design. GACK!

                          What? The part about it falling apart?

                              No - I was talking about this comment,,,,,"Seeing that you stole the idea from Canada's two dollar coin I thought you should know about this."

                              I of course wanted to use my own smart ass comment and did, I really dont know where the multi-composite coin was developed but I think there's a good chance it wasnt Canada
