[uf-new] Currency: more non-USD examples needed

Technically yes, seemingly practically no.

"Today, only two countries in the world use non-decimal currencies.
These are Mauritania (1 ouguiya = 5 khoums) and Madagascar (1 ariary = 5
iraimbilanja). In both cases the value of the main unit is so low that
the sub-unit is too small to be of any practical use and coins of the
sub-unit are no longer used."

Look again. There are also GBP, Canadian dollars
unspecified dollars, Euros, Deutschmark, and Jamaican money.

Are there any modern day currenscies which are not decimal?
