'tis much more fun to win it though.

I have been known to spend a bag full of "interesting" 2p coins in the arcade :)

It is indeed more fun, but there's a limit as to how much I'm willing to spend to win one!

She happily opened the machine to let me swap it out (even letting me grab the coin, since she didn't know which I meant because "they all look the same to me"


Haha nice.

I won a Jersey 2002 10p in my local amusement arcade on Wednesday:

I got 100 in 2 coins from the bank the same day and found this possibly unique hybrid 1997/1998 2 coin!

Someone has taken the middle out of a 1997 2 coin (the only issue with the Maklouf portrait) and inserted it (the wrong way around) into the outer ring of a 1998 2 coin! Somewhere no doubt there is a 1997-dated outer ring with a Rank-Broadley portrait center...

The distrustful skeptical side of me reckons that 'someone' was trying to manufacture a 'mint error' coin to flog for a wad of cash and discarded it when the their sloppy efforts wouldn't fool a yogurt.

David - you may be right!

I was in my local bank today and just for fun got a 1 bag of pennies to check through! Never got a bag of pennies before, but where else can you get 100 coins for a pound?


Exciting - found a (very corroded) 1944 farthing in the bag!

Interesting result:
1944 farthing - 1
1971 - 3
1976 - 1
1983 - 1
1985 - 1
1986 - 3
1988 - 1
1989 - 2
1991 - 1
1992 - 1
1993 - 2
1994 - 5
1995 - 2
1996 - 1
1997 - 1
1998 - 4
1999 - 6
2000 - 7
2001 - 4
2003 - 2
2004 - 2
2005 - 3
2006 - 3
2006 - 5
2008 - 3 (all shield reverse)
2009 - 7
2010 - 6
2011 - 4
2012 - 3
2013 - 2
2014 - 1
2015 - 1 (Rank-Broadley portrait)
2015 - 2 (Jody Clark portrait)
2016 - 3
2017 - 6

Photos of the farthing that masqueraded as a 1p - the first George VI coin I've found in circulation since the old florins were demonetised in 1993!

Cool, Numis Rob - You sure find some exciting coins there. The tales that farthing could tell and the Frankentwopound coin!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Nice find Rob.
With nearly 33 million of them minted, you should see plenty of them soon hopefully.
