Scott,

Shopping carts typically take 1 or 2 Euro coins, some take 50 cent 
coins, too. The carts only care about the size of the coin, so the 
Maastricht "fake" coin should work well everywhere in the Euro area. 
(Mandatory security considerations section: 5-20 cent coins may work 
well too on some implementations, small enough to release the cart but 
not big enough to get stuck as collateral...)
