The £2.00 Coin Savers Club



  • Hi Greenfingers

    I love your posts they always make me laugh!

    I don't often get £2 coins either, started the challenge last month, got one and then spent it so will try to get on the wagon again!

  • well i did have 2 till my mum 'borrowed' them lol, and they came back as 20ps and 10ps. But when i have them they go in my pink pig/cow and in my big frog i have 1ps and 2ps and in my little star piggy bank i have 5ps. I also have my huge camper van but i dont want to fill that as i am worried i will break it and i have waited 3 years for that money box.

    My OH has been collecting one of each new £2 design for a year or so and has a jar full. I haven't counted them. That's his pocket money!

    If you want to collect one each of the different designs of £1 that's interesting to do and get the kids involved looking for them amongst the change.

  • What a good idea I'll start this too i have got one £2 coin I too like fairylights don't come across them very often so i'll save the ones I get as I'm sure I won't miss them.
