    Welcome to the £2 Savers Club 2018

    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 2018,
    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...
    You are also welcome to do what you wish with the money. Either bank it as you please or at the end of the year or spend it as required.

    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 (or be removed though I hope that isn!!!8217;t the case!) 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 that!!!8217;s it. Start saving, comment regularly and hunt for those £2s. Any questions or comments please ask.

    I am saving £2 coins as well. I did this 10 years ago with £1 coins too. They mount up and the jar does get heavy.

    Clunk! Clunk! Clunk! Go 12 little beauties into my pot. I have finally paid for the stash that my wonderful hubby has obtained for me. No interesting coins in the pile.

    Now I am actively naming and saving any £2 coins........I havenít had one. .

    I am on a spending budget at the moment though so not spending much cash to get any. I may have to swap coins with people to get one this month. Still, the year is young.
    Yep...still at it, working out how to retire early........ Going to have to rethink that scenario as have been screwed over by the company. A work in progress.

    Which ones are the interesting ones ?

    For some reason separately in a jewellery drawer I have and having a look at them. No clue why I kept most of them.

    A Dickens one, no date

    Taj Mahal ones with no date

    Darwin with no date

    Abolition of slave trade

    And ones with a necklace on HRH that when they first came out everyone said to keep....probably utter rubbish

    Managed to swap 2 x£2 and 1x£1 for a fiver at the group. 15 coins,£30 saved.May not get many for a while,because I have a granddaughter's birthday Feb 27th,a daughter's on 4th March,a son's on 6th March,and my first great grandson is due to be born March 11. Not a lot of time to accumulate cash,so soon after Xmas !
    Oh,and then its Easter end of March,six easter eggs to buy..Not the easiest part of the year for saving
