18-cent and 1.37€ coins?

Rolands Technology Trends tells us that a recent study suggests that it would be most economical for the US to issue 18 cent coins, and Europe could do well with 1.33€ or 1.37€ coins. If you want to minimize the number of change, that is.

Hehe. We Finns already ditched the 1c and 2c coins because they were too expensive and useless, which probably screws up this whole calculation. But I am sure a 1.37€ coin would boost the average person's ability to do maths in their heads =).
