I will soon do a business trip to Berlin. I have some EURO coins from Greece, where I spent last summer. However, I have heard that due to the crisis between Germany and Greece you Germans do not accept the Greece coins. My question is: can I at least use the Greece-Euro-coins when I tip? (eg taxi drivers, restuarants, strippers, etc).
Thanks in advance,
Tim Fredriksson

Dear Tim,

I do not believe you will any trouble using Greek Euro coins.
Especially in every day money exchanges, you will find that people do not check the coins that carefully to see where it originated. The novelty of that wore off a number of years ago.

Best wishes,
