High-flying finance with chocolate and pigs...piggy banks that is. Today's clear plastic pig from Steenland Chocolate (Netherlands) was filled with gold foil wrapped chocolate coins in the following denominations:

1.) U.S. Quarters ($0.25) (1993)
2.) Japanese Yen? (10) (????)
3.) French Francs (2 Fr) (1979)
4.) Chinese Yuan? (100) (1992)
5.) Danish Kroner (10 K) (1979)

I consumed one of each, for the sake of international diplomacy. (Note: I took my best guess as to #2 and #4 coins.)
