In Bangladesh, the one- and two-taka coins are hardly considered to be of any value. At a time when goods and services costing Tk 5 or below are getting rare, it makes us wonder why coins of these values exist. The only scenario where they might be useful is on ferry terminals and for small donations. Otherwise, recipients of these coins struggle to come up with any use for them. I think the authorities should think of a way to either use these coins or simply eliminate them.
