I just found this on a parking website for Charlotte:

"Parking meters accept quarters, dimes, nickels and the Charlotte Coin. Meters rates vary according to locations. Most metered spaces, located in high-demand areas, are $0.25 for each 15 minutes. Those located on the perimeter of the city are $0.50 per hour. "

1. WTH is the Charlotte Coin? Are these special parking tokens?
2. Does anyone know where the .50 an hour ones are?

Never heard of this before so this is an interesting topic. Looks as if they release a new coin each year. Apparently you can buy a collector's version of this coin for $25. It contains 1oz .9999 silver. At today's silver prices, this is starting to become a decent deal.
