Paid Back In Their Own Coin
Shops in the Chinese city of Kunming say they are so short of coins that they have to get change from beggars. Retailers complain that banks don't provide enough coins to maintain their businesses. And it seems even the beggars are make money on the deal, charging 105 yuan for 100 yuan in coins. The city's Wal-Mart is even giving small presents to people who give them 20 yuan coins in change.
