This story is actually true, and it happened to me today.

I parked my car and stepped out with a handful of coins to feed the parking ticket machine.
Amongst the collection of coins there was a substantial number of (AU) 10 cent coins I wished to be rid of, as they accumulate rapidly, and one rarely utilises them to buy anything.

I fed a dozen of the 10c coins into the machine, but one was continually rejected.
After re-feeding it to the machine about 4 times, I realised it wasn't a 10c coin, it was very shiny, and it had a different pattern on it.
I picked the rejected coin up and studied it, and then realised it was a Czech, 5 Korun coin.

Right then, I understood the reason for the constant parking machine rejection.

Australian parking ticket machines won't accept Czechs under any circumstances.
