Emptying the'coin jar' – what's your record?
Just counted the coins in our 'coin jar' (actually a Celebrations Chocolates tin), you know the place you dump all your loose coins at the end of the day? If you do this that is 🙂 And the grand total after 2hrs of sorting? £246 in coins, from around 6 months of collecting… it's amazing how it adds up isn't it? 8)Posted 8 years agoNobeerinthefridgeSubscriber
Left it the full year once and had over 600 quid. Usually empty it twice a year for to help with holiday cash and get 250-300.
rockthreegozy – you're probably right, but if I had more tenners in the bank as opposed to the jeeb jar, then I'd feel inclined to spend it in a magpie-ish shiny seeking way.Posted 8 years agoNick_ChristyMember
my bro does this with his tips from a bar, every month he sees about £100 in just 50p here 20p there, i was amazed!
he got the wicked machine tho that counts it when you put it in so you dont have to count it at the end 😉Posted 8 years agoTijuana TaxiMember
Have always put 1p 2p and 5p in a pot or two for the kid, still do and she is nearly nineteen now
Last few times the bank insisted I pay it into my account rather than handing over the 20 or so quid.
Asked why and they said "to stop money laundering"
Bet those Columbian drug barons are busy taking all their ill gotten down the bank in coppers, world has gone quite madPosted 8 years agoMikeT-23Member
Haha. Me too!
I was about to say six times in one day, waaaaay back in the day when the stars were in alignment and I was at a peak for energy, enthusiasm, technique and availability amongst other factors.
So, that said, about £42.
I just do 1p,2p,5p and 10p bits now, in the wee change bags. When they reach their capacity I take 'em to the bank for account deposits. If I was to take one of each it would amount to £12!

I collect £2 coins and usually end up with £200 or so before I cash them in (which is normally when my other change jar is full).
I got an LCD flatscreen Panasonic with the last lot I cashed in (about £450).
I currently have £100-ish in £2 coins and probably another £150 at a guess in other loose change.Posted 8 years agomossimusMember
Think I have a bit of an OCD when it comes to coin collecting, generally try to always pay with notes in the pub etc. By the time I get home after an alldayer have sometimes had over £50 in change.
In the last three years saved enough in coins to buy a Breitling and diamond ring from Tiffany for the missus.Posted 8 years ago
