Money Kumar: Precisely. So while some time ago you could buy two toffees for 25 paisa, today you can buy only one. And for five and ten paisa, perhaps nothing. In other words, small coins have lost their value.
Children: Then why did the lady give me the value of my coins in notes?
Money Kumar: Because even if you cannot buy anything with these coins, they are still legal tender.
Ice-cream seller: Legal tender?
Money Kumar: Yes, legal tender. It means that if some one insists on paying the price of goods with coins, under the law, you must accept them.
Ice-cream seller: But I can't accept them. When I have so many customers, I better sell ice cream than count so many coins. In any case, what will I do with so many coins? No one will accept them from me.
