You can refuse chewing gums

You can refuse chewing gums or chocolates. They are asked by the Ministry to keep sufficient coins with them.

Why dont u buy a box of chewing gum

Buy a box of Chewing gum and keep it in ur car carry a packet with u in person,every time a cashiers tries to push you with chewing gum for the loose change,1st refuse,but if they insist then give them ur packet and ask for 1 buck .....they will not take it an will arrange to return the coins. I tried it many times it works well

The trouble is that they

The trouble is that they aren't allowed to give gum as change. So a lot of major supermarkets will pick up a piece of gum or chocolate and scan it, so that it adds to the bill and rounds it up to an even number. Therefore the gum isn't change, but another item of your shopping. I always just pay with a card these days, that way you only pay for what you want, and not a dirham more.

Metals used for coin making

Metals used for coin making are expensive now due to voracious demand from china and elsewhere for other useful items derived from the same metal. I even heard a humor that coins are being hoarded and melted to be used for making other more valuable metal products.

To those who complain about

To those who complain about the lack of coins--They are worth so little. Not even worth the cost of making them. No trick. Just not many coins available. So stop being so petty cheap and accept the candy.
