In my travels around the world, I have the fondness of keeping local notes and coins as a souvenir (also coasters, but that's another story) that have colors, shapes and languages ​​foreign to those that daily pass from my pocket to that of merchants in Ireland or Spain From the most common pesos, soles, dollars, pounds, Bolivians, rails, crowns, yuan, rupees, bahts, ringgits and dongs, to the less common tugrits, patacas and kyats, I have managed to gather a small and heterogeneous collection of a lot of weight and Not too much value.

And it has had to be precisely in my hometown, Aviles, where it has appeared in the hands of a humble newsstand, a curious coin that I would like for my collection (apparently they have already offered twenty euros for it). I read the news a few days ago on the website of RTE (the Irish State Radio Television) but I have verified on Google that it has already gone around the world.

The currency in question is from a distant country, populated by inhabitants of yellow skin and in it appears its monarch, an affable, clumsy, lazy, bald being except for four hairs, and glutton:
