Bottom right:

If you like to collect foreign coins from places you travel, the 2-dollar and 10-ecnt coins will be good to get since they have ripples on the edge. The 10-dollar and 5-dollar coins are much thicker than the rest. And it will be good to collect the old colonial coins - those issued when the British were governing Hong Kong. They have the British queen's head on one side, and some older ones even have King George's head on them. All such coins are still accepted as legal tender.
