Belgium trolls France with bonkers new commemorative coin

It is also wrong. The coins can NOT be used to buy anything, even in Belgium. They are a collectors item, no more, no less.

If you dig a bit deeper there's a whole scene of coin collectors for these kind of things. The idea being that they are pretty rare and some day might be worth more. Or they like collecting them more than they like stamps? Who knows ;)
