Facing my Waterloo: Belgians to change commemorative Waterloo coin, sidestep spat with French

FILE - In this June 20, 2010 file photo troops march through a field during a re-enactment of the 1815 Battle of Waterloo in Waterloo, Belgium. Belgium is looking to change a commemorative Waterloo coin to an unofficial value of 3 euros ($3.18) to avoid what it called opposition from France. Coining unofficial values do not need backing from other countries in the 19-nation eurozone. Battle of Waterloo commemorations begin June 18, 2015.
