    £2 Savers Club for 2019

    £2 Savers Club for 2019 23rd Dec 18 at 12:04 AM
    Welcome to the £2 Savers Club 2019

    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 2019,
    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...

    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 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 thatís it. Start saving, comment regularly e.g. let us know what type of coin you have obtained and hopefully it won't be too long before those pots are feeling heavy.

    Thanks for your message last Saturday Gem-gem.


    From the thirty one £2 coins saved this year, just three are "picture" coins.
    (End of World War 11, Florence Nightingale and Rugby World Cup). Always interesting to acquire.

    I have an old £2 coin folder that I keep one of each type in but they haven't produced them for a while so I have some stored in a box.

    I'm sure that I use to get more picture coins. Three £2 coins potted, all plain.

    Hubby has two more for me but I am having to wait for payday - two days to go. I only have £1.70 in change left.

    Thanks for your message last Wednesday Gem-gem.

    It always seems "unusual" for me to obtain any £2 coins, especially the picture ones! Additionally, my shopping trips are perhaps less now this time of the year.

    No £2 coins received since my last post.

    My friend and I always get our Xmas shopping done early so that we can avoid the crowds. Luckily hubby does 99% of the food shopping.

    1 x £2 coin yesterday
    2 x £2 coins today
    All plain.

    Hi All,
    I have just set next years £2 savers club up. I has been asked by MSE Molly to set it up earlier this year. I know that some people run from Dec - Dec or Nov - Nov for Christmas. Feel free to sign up and either to keep posting on here or on the other one. I will still post on here for a while.

    Hi.. I feel such a sense of achievement after going through all the coins I've found. I had another 4 x £2 coins yesterday so to add that to my £78 worth that I have saved this year I'm not doing too badly. I'm going to do my best not to raid the stash this year and put it towards next years winter weekend trip away as we usually go end of November somewhere - think it is Italy next year (My partner drives off-road trialing and we are Team Leaders for Wales - he says it's not as an expensive hobby as my horses *eyeroll!!!)

    Wow, can't believe this year is almost over! Well done to everyone that has managed to save. i wanted to save until my pot is full, and i know i have been stashing around £10 per week into it but it still isnt full! im going to join the new £2 coin 2020 thread, but try to do both a new pot and this current one until it is full. its one of those types you have to use a can opener to get into so not sure how much they hold but must be over £500! its going to be split and put into the kids accounts however much it is!
