Change it ? You'd need a fork lift just to carry it around.

Not quite pointless - it's a showpiece and a record breaker.

Useless - yes :)

I must admit I would like one as a present if the Australians are feeling generous and it would be difficult to lose :-)

Yes, you'd need a pretty big sofa to lose this coin...
