Mongolian money is a bit of a nuisance

Mongolian money is a bit of a nuisance from a practical point of view, when I changed some British Pounds (GBP) yesterday I got 2,172 Tughrik (currency code: MNT) to the Pound. It isn't that the large numbers are a problem, I can remember when you received millions of Turkish Lire to the Pound, it is the denominations of the notes. The main problem for me is that there are only notes, there are no coins!

The largest denomination is 20,000MNT and the larger denominations are fine but I already find that have some notes as low as 10MNT. I seriously doubt you can buy anything with 10MNT, perhaps I will take them home for use as bookmarks.
