    2 Savers Club for 2017

    2 Savers Club for 2017 1st Jan 17 at 12:31 AM
    Welcome to the 2 Savers Club 2017

    The aim is to collect every 2 coin you can lay your hands on! It is entirely up to you whether you want to:
    A) Save for a particular length of time e.g. monthly or till December 2017,
    B) Save for a particular reason e.g. to pay the car insurance, to pay for a family holiday or to buy birthday presents throughout the year,
    C) Save until you have a specific amount e.g. 20 or 100 or a pot full!
    D) Save for any other reason you can think of...
    You are also welcome to do what you wish with the money. Either bank it as you please or at the end of the year or spend it as required.

    Above all else remember this is a fun thread, but the aim of this website is to SAVE, so any encouragement, comments or help you can give to others are always very welcome.

    Anyone who wishes to join (or be removed though I hope that isn’t the case!) is always very welcome, please just ask and I will add you as soon as I can and allocate you a number. Also, if anyone wants to add anything to the list such as a target or a date to aim for etc. then let me know and I will add it. However there is no pressure to do this as many people just wish to be able to save as and when they can.

    So that’s it. Start saving, comment regularly and hunt for those 2s. Any questions or comments please ask.

    oooooh I have just seen the new 2 coins for 2017....

    They will launch a new 2 to go with the WW1 collection, Royal Flying Corps, and a 2 commemorating Jane Austin...

    Cant wait to find these and add them to my 2 collection folder...

    There is also going to be a new 50p commemorating Issac Newton, and of course the new 12 sided 1 coin...

    Coins to enter circulation in 2017

    No more potting for me I have gone down with the winter lurgy that is going around, I haven't left the flat for a few days so that means NSD and therefore no change to sort through...

    Hope everyone is enjoying the first week back after the celebrations..

    Hi Gem-gem
    May I join please? I love to collect 2 coins. I'm not setting a target - will see how I go - but I have a massive sealed pot and added 98 in 2 coins to it today.

    Thank you!

    edit: changed my mind, setting a target of 300!

    Hi All,

    Another lapsed member wanting to rejoin

    I came back to work after Christmas with a whopping 16 worth of the shiny treasures in my purse so they are in my tin. I have no goal except to fill the tin up. I'm abut half way there already so hopefully by the end of the year.

    Hi catscradle and Naomin, sorry for the delay in responding. I left my mobile phone charger at my mother's house and have been waiting for it to arrive in the post.

    Welcome to you both. I have assigned you a number. Catscradle you are no 25. Naomin you are number 26.

    Good luck with your finds. Keep us all updated. Some people post every time they get a coin. Others post once a week. It is up to you.

    Thanks for the welcome & number Gem-gem. Sadly no coins for me at the moment as I don't get paid until the 15th and my purse is bare!
