  • At last!
    Got a £2 coin in the pub last night, my first one since I decided to join the £2 coin savers club (about a month ago, after which they became annoyingly elusive).

    Total back down to £0 - had to raid the piggy bank for OH's work trip! Will get it back in expenses eventually but won't be in nice shiney gold £2 coins. :(

    Ooooh I love a challenge!

    By the way does anyone have any ideas how to make a DIY money box?

    I love those Terramundi but they are too pricey for me ;-)

    I have a vague recollection of making something similar to a Terramundi at school - papier mache (newspaper soaked in water till really messy and soggy!) wrapped round a balloon, making sure it is all covered quite thickly then allowed to dry. (might have to do a few layers). Then stick in a pin to burst the ballon, cut a slot in the top, paint and you have your own Terramundi!

    Well might be fun to try.... :D

    Just thought I'd add, I've just ordered a big money tin offline that's meant to hold upto £500 or more in £2 coins, so I'm excited about that arriving!

  • :rotfl: Got two more of the little beuties today, so my total is increasing nicely! I got one of those large tins from ebay - I like the fact that you really cannot get to the money any way other than opening it with a tin opener. Mine is stood alongside my dragon money box that is saving silver and my car money box that I put any money in that I find. I have a right collection!:rotfl:

    I got another two last night, thats the third time in a row I have been given two at a time in change - perhaps they travel in pairs now? :T

  • I'll join too!

    Been collecting since the summer but my little pig is nearly full and he's got just under £60 in him...

    Should I change the £2 coins into notes at the bank or something?

  • I just drop a £2 coin in every week on payday and I'm on £40. I'm not missing the £2. Got no idea what I'm saving it towards though lol
