Photos: Coin Towers

A few weeks ago, I talked about optimizing coin pressure. Then, I didn't have any coins to photograph to illustrate how important it is to choose what coins to carry - now I can (and so here are the illustrations I didn't promise, but delivered anyway): The optimized stack of coins - 8 coins.

And the stack behind it? The remaining 25 coins that won't make my coin pressure any higher. Here's a photo if you feel like counting:

The remaining coins after optimization - preferably kept for feeding into machines.

(If I'm not mistaken, that's about AU$4.40 in change.)

So, optimize your change - your wallet will thank you for it by lasting longer.
