Now that people cannot use Sweden's old 1, 2 and 5 kronor coins to pay for things anymore, what can they do with them?

Also, if one happens to find a stash under the sofa cushion or in an old jacket pocket, is it worth hanging on to them?

Radio Sweden speaks to people in Stockholm, about whether they have any coins still hanging around and what they're planning to do with them. Then, we pay a visit to a dealer of valuable metals.
