Do we still really need 1p and 2p coins?

    I do wonder why banks seldom seem to have enough cash counting machines for each window at their branches. According to the prices shown on the internet, it would cost less than £500 to equip each position at a UK bank and I reckon that would pay for itself in less than a year.

    Mind you, I think I pay in cash roughly once per year! :)

    I don't think that they do count them - they weigh them.

    Yes, banks have always weighed coins and have always given out those little plastic coin bags for that reason - but nowadays, at my local bank anyway, you cannot mix coins in the same bag, even though you once could.

    Mike,

    A 2p does the job but a 50p is my tool of choice for QR plates and focus rails....or a key but bottle tops are rubbish;)
