Pluto — a Complex and Changing World 191

astroengine writes "After 4 years of processing the highest resolution photographs the Hubble Space Telescope could muster, we now have the highest resolution view of Pluto's surface ever produced. Most excitingly, these new observations show an active world with seasonal changes altering the dwarf planet's surface. It turns out that this far-flung world has more in common with Earth than we would have ever imagined."

There are not 260 'different' coins. Each state just changes the picture of the coins (except 1€ coin), but coins are still made the same way, materials, size, weight are equal in each country. That leaves just with 8 different coins if my memory doesn't fail me... 1,2,5,10,20 and 50 cents and 1 and 2€...
