Pyramid Coin a Nightmare for Pockets

Pyramid-shaped coinA pyramid-shaped coin worth 25p has become legal tender on the Isle of Man in Scotland.

The island's government commissioned the three-sided coin to commemorate the Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibition at the O2 arena in London.

The copper coin, a crown, marketed by the Isle of Man Post Office as "a unique gift" that is "a must for all Egyptologists", costs £15 ($30) to buy.

One side of the crown shows Tutankhamun, the teenage pharaoh who died 3,330 years ago, and the other features a portrait of the Queen.
