Make coins with four small clustered holes, so that when you loose a button, you just sew on a coin. Also means that you are never short of spare change.... just yank off a button/coin in an emergency.

Like [xenzag] said, "a single large hole in the centre" :) [Vernon, Feb 15 2010]

       Does anyone carry change for emergencies anymore? I can remember always having a quarter in case I had to make a phone call. I'm not sure that's useful any more.

       Wow, my mother would just love you and she would pinch your cheeks together, and tell you that, my little xennie. She used to safety pin my milk money to the bottom of my skirt, in a neat little fold up trick. With your idea she could have just sewed some to my blouse.   

       Come over here, my mother is too old and demented to show you how much she loves this...but I'm not. +

       Logical extrapolation: Button/Coin/Battery. A CR2032 with currency stamps front and back and four holes in the centre.   

       [+] by the way.

       With an alka-seltzer core in case you have indigestion, or perhaps a cyanide capsule if you get caught doing whatever you're doing.

       I think Chinese coins are used as buttons, but I like it, so here's a bun. I'll look for a link.

       I am aware of a number of coins with a single large hole in the centre. This can be used to carry them on a knotted cord, but none have the four holes needed to properly attach them as a button.

       To use a coin with a single large hole in the center as a button, one can simply attach it to one's garment with... a small button!   

       This small button would of course have the desired four holes in it, and furthermore would have a big enough circumference that the coin doesn't fall off of it.

       Ironically the typo makes just as much sense as the intended word...   

       First you loose it, then you lose it.

       This idea is too cute. I love it when people find the time to think of such simple, yet beautiful alternatives to what is already out there... but I guess that's the same reason why we all keep coming back. Big fat [+] for this.
