Floating Coin

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 24 October 2015 in Miscellaneous.

I noticed coins in the fountain around the Peace Statue. I tossed in a one yen coin, which is very light, and it floated. It floated all the way to the edge of the fountain and down the outside since that's how the water flows.

It was, therefore, a floating currency.

It is as in the fountain from Trévi to Rome where we throw coins by hoping to return one day

Is the first time I see a floating currency !! physically
I guess this is unrelated to the floating exchange rate :))

A fine picture of this unusual buoyancy. The coin toss made an interesting experiment to watch it float away.
