So many sellers use US specific size markers even when they ship internationally. Rulers that have mm and inches would also help.

So what is the diameter of a dime in mm?

It's 17.91 mm, according to Google.

No way, I just measured a dime, haha.

8mm for a dime? That's less than 1cm. No way.

Yeah, currencies really mean nothing in front of an international audience.
