Simplicity is often the key to innovative design and this infographic coin set by Mac Funamizu illustrates the point perfectly. The shapes of this futuristic currency reflect the mathematical fractions of the coin’s value; the 25¢ piece is formed as ¼ of a circle, 50¢ as a semi-circle.

Converting to change whose form indeed follows its function would be useful not only to visitors from foreign countries or to the hard-of-seeing but to everyone. Imagine dipping blindly into your purse and being able to distinguish a $2 simply by feeling its dual disc shape. Check out more shots of the infographic coin set by Mac Funamizu above.
