    Hi guys,
    Basically I want to change some money. I need 15000 2p coins for an art object. Do you have any ideas about this?
    Thanks a lot!

    Yep, take £300 into a bank and ask them to convert it into 2p's.

    Probably not a good idea to do it all in one go though due to weight.

    Flooring???

    bank can refuse, it cost them money to get change in

    Arcades have 2p change machines!

    Yes. But has op even asked first. It would be the first port of call.

    agree.

    Bank seems the logical place to try first,
    If they are happy to supply you that much in coin's you would probably need to pre order it a few days before thou.

    seen the video on FB looks awesome!

    Go to the arcades and raid the machines:)

    i would personally just try changing the money £20 at a time. Banks issue 2ps in bags of £20 and they can be pretty heavy truth be told. Most high Street have a few banks you can try. My experience is some will oblige whilst other will refuse unless you bank with them. If you drive then make a day of it visiting different banks and building society and filling your car!

    Total weight is close to 106kg fyi

    Check out the legal side if your project entails defacing currency

    2p af!

    Honestly I don't get why the arcade option is getting down voted.
    They have change machines which convert higher denotation coins and notes into 2p's.

    So either load up on them every couple of days until you have enough or ask at the cashier desk to see if they'll do a lump sum.

    That's not a bad idea as most arcades have change kiosks, will take a while but it is free

    Why would arcades allow someone to take loads of 2p coins away? They need them for their machines.

    LMAO

    Careful putting that much change in your car! Make sure you spread it out. £20 worth of 2p coins isn't light on its own

    arcades people are not watching out for people doing this, so just do but do not make it obvious

    Don't do Facebook but take it this is what you doing?

    There's a pizza chain that do this in their restaurants down south. Why would you copy something like that? Too common.

    What flooring do you have in your house then? Obviously No carpet, No wood flooring, No Tiles, No vinyl, No laminate, No stone as these are what i would call common.

    2p Or not 2p that is the question
