Inflation eats everything up in Argentina, even coins.
The number of 5-cent coins is getting increasingly greater. Yet, they are made up of copper and nickel. The new ones are lighter.
This change is related to the fact that cost of metals with which coins used to be manufactured has exceeded 5 cents. Ideal for opportunists melting them and making a difference.
The same happens with 10-cent coins and those of one cent have already disappeared.
Will Argentina have 5-peso coins in the future with current mounting inflation?
