Thought I would start a new thread for £2.00 Coin Savers….. a sort of club... lol :p

My £2.00 Coin Piggy Bank (see wonderful picture below – hee hee) was starting to get really, really heavy, :D so I emptied it out and a massive 44 coins are in there saved since last December. I popped into the bank this afternoon and put £50.00 of it into the savings account – hooray.

The balance of 19 coins can stay in there until there’s another £50.00 to bank.

How many £2.00 Coins have you saved….. :)

  • What a bright idea! That said, I don't often get £2 coins! We save everything below 20p normally though. I will go and dedicate the Miffy piggybank to £2 coins from now on ... starting at £0 :rolleyes:

    The last time we done this about 3 years ago we ended up with nearly £200 which was used towards spending money for our holiday

    I have £34 in £2 coins saved since the end of December. Not bad. I thought I hardly ever got £2 coins until I started saving them.

    I've saved £2 coins for years, best thing is that you only need 10 to make up a bank bag so I've enough fingers for that :rotfl:

  • I save everything less than 20p for my little boy, and 20p/50p for the rainy day fund - along with 2004/5 "Bridge" series £1 coins..... everything else gets spent

  • I've got about £220 in mine which is supposed to be holiday spending money, if we can ever afford one! :rolleyes:

    I have got £46 in there since December! Hooray!

    Great thread!
    October make £10/day currently £11.02
  • This is a great idea, think I will start saving the £2 coins from now on. I save coppers and 5p coins in a piggy bank at the mo. Well, not really a "piggy" bank as its shaped like a VW camper van.... anyway *back to topic*, I recently emptied it and after an hour of counting had £30 in there. Was almost too heavy to carry to the bank but went straight in the savings account when it got there, every little helps! Perhaps I will start putting £2 coins in too and the surprise will be even better next time! Good luck everyone!!
