    Last night I found a 20p coin at my local railway station. I think most people around here are far too posh to pick up dropped coins.

    I've consulted my roadkill spreadsheet, and my December total is currently £4.74 and my 2014 total is £51.83 :)

    I'm really looking forward to carrying my roadkill finds to my local bank to pay in. Luckily they have one of those self-service change machines.

    I suspect that some of the real "roadkill" coins will be rejected by the machine. Does anyone know if the bank will stil accept damaged coins?

    Logging in a huge 8p today. 3 pennies & a 5p. 13p to find before end of tommorow!
    Emma -the only thing is that the coin star machines will deduct a % if you use them. It's up to you but I just use mine in the self service tills. That way even the most battered coins get exchanged by the shop & you can use them.

  • As 2004 is coming to a close for me here in Oz, spending a quiet night in as dh is on call :( I thought I would declare my roadkill for the year:

    $24.05 approx. £12.63

    £10.25 in Asda receipts and a 5p when I was back earlier in the year

    Making my grand total £22.93 :)

    Happy New Year Roadkillers and as Shaw Taylor used to say on the tv when I was a little girl "keep 'em peeled" (really showing my age now lol!) :beer:

    In the past we had to put them in a couple of times before they are accepted. We have still have yet to try our damaged coins.
