As I thought about it, I realized that on my last trip to Mexico I had to use 2 different foreign (!) currencies. I found the Mexican money difficult to use at first - it took some time to realize that 100 pesos really wasn't all that much! There paper money was different sizes as well as different colours.
Then when we stopped over in Detroit on the way back I had to readjust to American money. After using coloured bills at home for so long, I really have to look carefully at each bill to be sure that I am not giving away a $10 rather than a $1.)).
We now in Canada have 2 coins to replace the $1 and $2 bills. I have gotten used to the loonie and toonie now, but it did take some getting used to.
Now that the Canadian dollar is almost on par with the U.S., people here in Canada are worried.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the months to come.
