Simple question: if you find 10 cent coin (US or Euro) lieing in a street, do you pick it up into your pocket and why? What would be the smallest coin that you would pick up?

No, I wouldn't. In a general street, I'd probably not pick up anything under a €2 coin. If that. First of all you've got no idea where it's been, and secondly, I just don't think it worth the effort really. :uhm:

If I was in the supermarket, I would - but it would go straight into the charity box. I abhor small change (New Zealand used to have some of the biggest coins in the world, but they all got downsized a year ago), and I hardly every use cash.

I'd probably pick up a $2 coin, and any note, but that's it.

Not like you know where cash you're given as change has been, either...

Anyway, if I notice it I probably would. Then, if I'm lucky, it'll make it home into a change jar, or into my desk at work. You never know when 10¢ might actually be useful. Just as often, though, I'll lose it sooner than that.

Yes. I would pick them up. I wouldn' t pick up one and two cents coins but from 5 euro cents up I would pick up everything. Nobody wants to pick them up so they always remain on the ground which makes it easier to find them more often. So when I picked up 2€ worth of 10 euro cents coins you will find a 2€ coin. I' m a psicho-street-economist.

I woulden't pick it up, I'd let someone else who sees it and is less fortuneate then me to make the desicion to pick it up. The smallest coins I pick up are quarters. My dad finds like 5 bucks daily on the floor of a cafeteria of a HS he works at. Stupid kids, dropping dollar bills on the ground.

I'd pick it up. I like money, and money is money. Might as well be thankful for what I can find.

Sure, the relation between reward and invested time is probably better than for most other sorts of work.
