    £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.

    Picked up another gold beauty at work today so that one has been stored safely in my pot. Thought I was off to a slow start but it's only early January. Hopefully things will pick up next month later this month.

    Ive finally gone through which picture coins I got last year (they are kept separate so they don't get banked by accident):

    Isambard Brunel
    Double helix
    Brunel bridge
    Darwin
    Lork Kitchener
    Mary Rose
    Magna Carta
    Great fire of London
    Britannia
    Shakespeare comedies
    St Pauls Cathedral
    Rugby World Cup

    Before last year, they all got banked with the rest of them.

    £16 So far. I'm struggling to get these latest coins to 'fall into' my pot of dreams without encouragement so I don't think it will be long before I can smash it and bank it! I'm excited to see how close the contents are to the predicted £1500 they say they'll hold!

    :My mum collects £2 coins and swaps them up when she goes on holiday. So as a dutiful daughter I have offered to swap them for pound notes.
    25 coins for me . 5 x £10 notes for Mum
    1 x Darwin coin; 1 x rocket coin; the rest are all plain.

    20 £2 coins so far=£40.

    230 coins to go this year!! When I say it like that, it seems a heck of a lot to collect over a year, so will see how it goes.
