1925 Gold Sovereigns  ....
One of the most unusual facts about 1925 sovereigns is that in 1949, 1950 and 1951, the Royal Mint produced sovereigns, but instead of preparing new dies with George VI's head, and with the correct date, they lazily re-issued George V sovereigns da

Coppers for a Cuppa

Help the Homeless

This is an idea i

With one and two cent coins no longer being used from this week, and everything in your local shop being rounded up to the nearest five cent, one Irish girl has come up with a unique idea for all of your unused copper coins.

Ashling Dunphy has a brilliant idea. 

 Loads of people will have a jar or some sort of container at home and I’m asking them to put all of their one and two cent coins, or any change into this jar,

“Put a sticker on it saying. Coppers for a Cuppa The main thing about this campaign is you save all your coppers and change until Christmas or whenever your container is full.

“Then go to your nearest shop or garage with a coin counting service. With the money you have saved in the jar, go out and buy a homeless person(s) a cup of tea and a sandwich or something small.

“Be it on your way to work, shopping, walking or whenever you may be passing a homeless person.

It doesn’t take an awful lot to be kind to someone. We all have coins in the house and at the bottom of our handbags – it all adds up. Every little bit helps.

That is a very good  idea , fair play Ashling! you can be sure it will be appreciated
