Regarding Copper/Silver effects, are there any other coins that are the same diameter as a Kennedy Half and the old English penny?

The East African dime and the 50 centavo from the Philippines are 2 of my favorites! When I first got into coin magic I went to a coin shop and dug through the misc. foreign coin bin looking for same size or close and found several! The Australian penny is cool, it has a kangaroo on the back!

Manreb,

Does the Irish penny have a rooster on it?

No a harp I believe.

Thanks Adam! I can't for the life of me remember which coin has the rooster but it's cool looking as I recall!
