Old 10p Coins

8
Posted 31st Mar 2019
Just found a stash of the old 10p coins in my garage. Must amount to roughly £7 or £8 pounds. They are obviously out of tender but would banks still accept these for exchange? Or would these have any sort of antique like value?

Go to a field where people with metal detectors like to frequent. Then sit back and watch the fools get exited.

No they won't, the Bank of England will accept old notes but not coins.
Some high street banks may accept old coins if you have an account, best to enquire.
Failing that, there are websites that will buy them but the last time I looked they were offering less than face value for old decimal coins AND you had to pay for the postage so it wasn't worth it.

Well I've learnt something today. Thanks.
Give to charity.
Try putting them in one of the change machines that you get in some supermarkets they might accept them.
