Once in a while I find American coins in my change, its rare tho. And I believe vending machines built in North America should accept all coins based on weight.

Ditto. American pennies are very common, though.

Once in a while I get pennies, maybe a dime. The only time I have a lot is after a trip to the states. It always looks funny in my wallet.
