Fractional Coins

Coins minted by a government that are denominated as fractions of the basic currency unit. For example, the U.S. dollar is divided into 100 cents. Fractional coins are any coins that represent less than one dollar. Thus, 50-cent pieces, quarters, dimes, nickels, and cents are all fractional coins.
