You probably won't have to travel. Just check out those that end up in your wallet. All Euro coins are valid in all Euro countries, and the coins have mixed quite a bit. You could get a lot of different ones where you are, if you're lucky.

So you're interested in math? Is it your favorite subject?

It is a favourite subject of mine, yes I especially like numbers and how you can treat them.

Take a normal deck of cards, 52 of them. How many different ways of sorting that deck do you think there is? I'm talking about the order they end up in. Factory order, that's one. Exchange places for the first two, that's two. And so on.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that found by the equation: 52!

I'm so bad with permutations and combinations though

You're quite right!
I found Spain, Netherlands, Luxembourg and a bunch of other countries that I now dislike because they did not print their name. I hate it when they do that. Makes things tougher for an amateur coin collector.
Will search online to figure out which one is from which country.

Don't know if you this, so:
52! is so huge a number that when you shuffle a deck of cards, there is a HUGE probability that that particular order has never occurred anywhere before.

52! yes, that is correct. What do you call that in the states, btw? With the exclamation mark behind?

The number is quite big, in the vicinity of 10 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000.

Many use national symbols. You'll find it easy enough with a search

I am quite familiar with huge numbers Having played a bit of cards in my time I also know that if you get the same cards, someone probably cheated
70! is in fact bigger than a googol.

I can't recall what it's called... Maybe I'd recognize the name if I saw it.

You exaggerate there!
It's about 125 times smaller than that. Really.

You probably know that Google was a misspelling of Googol.
Googol is quite small. It's so small in fact that there is enough place in the universe to write it. A Googolplex on the other hand...
But, then you probably knew that too.
