    Yay, excellent work.

    I started my tin with the pitiful amount that I saved in 2016, really only started it in November/December time.

    Managed to nab some from the DH's change that he empties out his pockets every night

    I think some of those Beatrix potter ones are sought after and worth more than 50p. I have a tight winkle one which is on royal mint website for £10 so worth a look. I don't really understand it tho and of course if you buy from royal mint it will come on a nice pack but handy to
    Know.
    I have had hardly any 50ps recently. Hunting them out!

    hey i'm interested to join,
    but I'm taking part in the sealed pot challenge and I just wanted to ask if i can include the total of how many 50ps I've saved here but also put it towards the SPC, or do i have to have the challenges separate?

    Welcome Thora,

    I have added your number.

    More the merrier & challenges can be combined as far as I am aware there are not hard & fast rules as long as you keep all the threads updated.

    Ive got £8 in my tin so far. It looks like more.
    If i can get £8 per month this is nearly £100 in december 2017 which would be amazing.

    Thank you Dolly. xxx
