    £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.

    13.01.19.

    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.

    Hello, can I join please?

    I have started multiple saving pots for this year already but figured joining may help me keep on track!

    I will be saving whatever I can, whenever I can until my pot is full hopefully!

    How exciting Twiggy_34. I bet it must be very heavy. Can you pick it up?

    There are many people saving two pound coins. Where do you find the best/ easiest place is to get those lovely coins? Is there a particular supermarket that you find always has £2 coins? Or what about market stalls? Where is your go to place?

    I find when I go to quizzes, I can always swap a £2 coin or ten!

    I have had the grand total of 1 £2 coin this year.

    I keep hoping for £2 coins in my change but they’re just not coming to me :-(

    HI everyone, I've managed to get 3 x £2 coins today in my change from shopping. Checked my total in my camper van money box and have £16 in total. Not adding it up again as I want a surprise at the end of the year! Dx
