Belgium trolls France with bonkers new commemorative coin

It can be used anywhere. However, due to the fact that it isn't legal tender, it can be refused when presented to settle a debt.

Same with Scottish and Northern Ireland pound sterling notes - can be accepted as payment for a debt anywhere in the UK, but as it's not legal tender it can be refused.

Credit cards, debit cards, cheques and other non-cash methods of payment aren't strictly speaking legal tender (i.e. it's totally legal for the person who is owed the money to refuse it)
