In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Mar 13, 2015

Here's a rapidfire quiz about coins.  The questions are hard but fun, and the answers are given right after the questions are asked. 

So if you want to make guesses as you go, keep your finger on the pause button and hit it just as soon as I finish reading the question. 

Which of today's coins have the least amount of copper content?  How many mints have been in Philadelphia since 1792?

Do you know what strange thing happens when you pay for a $3.59 purchase with a $20 bill?

What was the Buzzard coin?  Who proposed our decimal money system?  What were the modern-day era years of no mint marks? 

Learn the answers to all of these and a lot more, in under five minutes.
