Sorry, I'm British and stupid, how big is a dollar coin relative to say a 2p coin?

I have no idea.

  2. cerseiously said: About the same size :)

  10. somenerdygirl said: Much bigger, which is why Americans rarely bother with silver dollars at all. (A 2p coin is the exact size and shape of a US quarter.)
  11. cupofteaandspirit said: its more like a 1p coin size.
  12. littletinydoom said: roughly the same size. slightly smaller.
