Got a coin in my change today that at first I thought it was a Chinese coin that got slipped into my change.  Covid and they are celebrating the bat?  Print was so small I could not read it.

Got home and looked at it with my opti-visor.  Turns out I had it upside down.  It is supposed to celebrate American Samoa but I still wonder why they would choose a bat and why American Samoa is written in microscopic print?

I got one of those a few months back. My first thought was “What the hell?” then I did the same thing as Larsen and got out a magnifying glass. I actually thought it was some kind of CoVid / Bat gag. :lol:

They made the selection and the dies in 2019. The bats are the nearly extinct Fruit Bat native to Samoa.

Well thanks that clears up the "guano" on this story!:lol:
