If I only had a nickel for every time that happens.

On the bright side, if the coin was silver, it has gone up in value.

Um, are there a lot of non-metallic coins out there?

Your savings don't earn snot these days.

Isn’t METAL coin a bit redundant? Are there any coins made of something else?

I learnt a new term today: rhinolith
One imagines an outtake from The Space Odyssey: 2001 ..
Hal, beginning to break character for the tenth straight take:
I'm ssor- I'm sorry, Dave, I .. Ha Ha Ha Ha Oh, Stanley, I .. blew it again. Dave's showing off his rhinolith again! Ha Ha Ha Ha Oh, I can't breathe - I can't breathe!

Then there is the immortal song "If My Nose Was Running Money"

You're welcome

@655321 & Qaz, I believe the money on the Pacific island of Yap was made of stone. However, the 'coins' were closer to the size of a millstone than anything that would fit in your pocket or a kid's nose.
