No they're obviously Japanese.
They're Chinese, and there's a good reason for it - you could put a thread through them and carry the coins around that way =P
Nope they are Japanese. My cousin gave them to me after his trip to Japan a while back, and furthermore here is what comes up on google images when you search "Japanese coins".
Sorry for derailing thread here but I needed to correct this.

Well this is certainly a funny description done on a whim after the folks pretty much played till chemical plant and call it a day. The fox one made me chuckle. What I'm more curious about it now is in regards to the last part concerning the game not being available for Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. It kinda also makes it sound like more countries were to be listed too.
Though wait a sec, first they say rings, then coins...? followed by the little fox comment. If it weren't for the part of "collect all the coins and watch out for enemies" at the beginning I was kinda thinking the "coins" were actually the chaos emeralds and the fox "helps you" collect more of the "coins"... in the special stage... get it?

Because those countries use PAL-N instead of NTSC, so theoretically you'd need an European system to run them... except because all TVs over here are multisystem so they support both PAL-N and NTSC, and Sega completely ignored that =/

This reminds me of in the 90s when here both Sonic and Mario were about equally popular, and loads of kids used to call rings "coins" when talking about Sonic games. The fucking cretins.
I could have punched the fuckers.

These descriptions take me back to the time when I rented Metal Gear Solid at a Blockbuster Video. Never did the back of the case mention how to switch discs mid-game. Until recently, I never experienced the second half of that game ever.

why the hell do the coins have holes in them?
Those aren't coins. Those are cock rings.

The "don't be afraid of Tails" part is pretty funny, but admittedly, not many games of this genre featured a sidekick who followed you around at all times before Sonic 2 - at least, none come to mind.
I must admit- I WAS THAT KID who thought tails could hurt you at first (4 years old, understandable!)
