Compared side-by-side: The one Euro coin used in Spain (featuring King Juan Carlos I)  and the one Bolívar Fuerte coin

Remember the problem we have with the sencillo? Well, it’s no longer a domestic issue.

Spanish newspaper ABC reports that the one Bolívar Fuerte coin is now used by small con artists there to pay in stores, buses or bars. Given its similar appereance with the one Euro coin, it can fool those who don’t look closely. This new trend is increasing all over Spain.

The Central Bank president should ask the Spanish police to return those coins back to us.
