Does anybody here like to use all kinds of foreign coins, or do you try to stick to common domestic ones? Either way, what are your favorite coins to use? I've read that most people like half dollar size coins 'cause it fits the the average palm best. Any different experiences?

Oh, and what is the best place to get all kinds of foreign coins? $2 for an English Penny at some magic sites seems pretty expensive... I've heard about currency exchange booths at airports. What about that? I've never seen one before; I haven't been to airports much.

I use Half Dollars but being in Australia people don't know the coins, they think they are gimmicket or something, I use 20 cent Aussie coins, tiny bit smaller than half dollars, fit nicely ! ! Try stamp and coin places. i picked up 4 nickles some penny's, a few half dollars, a chinese coin and a few dimes for 2 Australian bucks, too easy ! ! !

I like to use Quarters because they are so common.

I actually prefer silver dollars. They're kind of expensive to find since they aren't in circulation anymore but are very easy to palm and the larger size increases the effect 90% of the time. Unless the size gets in the way, I use silver dollars from 1974-1977.
