I see no reason to change that. Coins are supposed to be yellow (and bank
notes green) in Disney comics. No matter the material they are made of. This
has been the case since the beginning. It is disturbing to see a white/brown
mass of coins in Scrooge's bin (like in Lo$ chapter 12). I do hope the
editors will keep the "yellow coins" tradition.
BTW, Scrooge's money bin always had a big "f" sign in Holland (f = the Dutch
currency sign). In the new albums they are doing from now on (for Lekturama
for instance), they change the f-sign into a Euro sign. This makes Duckburg
a part of the European currency area, I guess. I can understand the editor's
reasoning, but I'd prefer the (traditional) f's...
