Could pequena in this context mean small in value as well as small in size?

Well, normally small coins have lesser value than bigger ones.

It could be used, although I would not encourage you to learn it that way because it is not a rule and context can mean a lot. The right way would be: Es una moneda de poco valor.

Dimes are the smallest US coin, but worth more than both nickels and pennies

That's great thanks. I know that the size isn't a rule - here in Britain, the 2p is bigger that the 5p, the 10p and the 20p!

In the U.S (don['t kno re other English speaking countries).the coinage you get when you break a bill is change, as in "here's your change", or "keep the change". Another use of the word is the colloquiel phrase "It's small change" when referring to an issue of little importance. Which I thought a perfect translation of this spanish phrase, but, no....

Do you have to use "pequeña" because "moneda" ends in an "a"

September 24, 2015


You use pequeña because moneda is a feminine noun, not simply because it ends in an "a". There are many examples of feminine nouns ending in "o" as well as masculine nouns ending in "a". For example, una mano pequeña.

Is "small currency" really wrong for "moneda pequeña"?

April 24, 2016


I wondered the same thing

I tried "it's a small piece of money", but it wasn't accepted. Would that have to be "es una pequeña pieza de moneda"?

money is "dinero" and coin is "moneda", I think

You would think "it is a little money" would be ok

I thought "moneda" was currency

May 17, 2017


It is a small change, was not accepted

September 17, 2017


It says right answer is "it is 1 small coin", i put a small coin, how do you know when it's a or 1?

"Manos pequeñas." Thank you! Now I understand "bueños días". Love it when a concept comes together!

The answer i gave was the same.

It said type what I hear, it spoke in Spanish "Es una moneda pequena" which I typed in Spanish. It then said wrong and gave me the translation in English.
