Every country does have copper coins. This already happened in ancient times. These metals were used for the smaller currencies. More of these coins had to be minted, because change is simply used more. Just think of our own Dutch coins from the past. The old Willem and Wilhelmina copper half and whole cents. The larger units such as the Willem stuivers were made of silver again. This also happened in the Juliana and Beatrix era. Our old cents and silver Juliana guilders as an example. For an older generation still good in memory and for the youth a piece of history.
Coins of silver were later replaced with nickel. This happened in the Netherlands with our Juliana silver guilder and Juliana silver rijksdaalders. This was due to the high silver price. The silver in the coins exceeded the value of the guilder itself. The government intervened and the nickel guilder was born. Of course this also applied to the rijksdaalders and the silver decade disappeared completely. Later, silver decennia (with lower weight) were still issued. But this was more for the collector. Each coin also had a different image because of a different theme. Really circulating as a means of payment, these silver ones have never been. After the introduction of the euro, silver 10 and 5 euro coins were also issued with the same goal / result.
These were mainly beaten in connection with scarcity of metals. An example of this is in the Netherlands the Second World War period. The small currencies in zinc were beaten. After the scarcity, the battle disappeared. Yet always separate to meet these coins in different periods of a country. It often represents a separate piece of history per country per period.
