Heads and Tails


In 1967, the columbian government invested several million dollars developing a 3rd "torso" side to the Columbian coin currency. This 3rd side was seen as the middle ground between the polar yes/no of flipping a coin. The development was fraught with opposition, with exactly half the cabinet suggesting that even if such a shape could be developed, both upward facing sides would be equally prominent. Eventually the deadlock was somehow broken, and the plans were abandoned.
