    coin X currency

    Isn't the pfennig a German coin/currency?

    I thought that "currency" would be right, but the right word to complete the sentence is the "coin". Why? What is the difference between a coin and currency? Well, I can understand it in general, but what about this sentence?

    Re: coin X currency

    "Currency" is a system of money in general use in a particular country; a "coin" is a single piece of money, usually made of a metal, within that currency
