I save them and if I receive one in change I never spend it.
I find lots of coinage lost or hidden away in house clearances.
It all gets saved.
Its only recently since Covid that coinage has not been used much, but then again many places where coinage was spent have been closed.
I sell at antique fairs and car boot sales and cash is king.
No other payment is acceptable.
Besides what would I do without my coin counting machines.
In America we had a 2 cent and 3 cent coin. People preferred to regularly just use the 1 cent and 5 cent instead.
Same thing is happening in GB. They are making. 2P coins, everyone is mostly using 1P and 5P. They are making £2 coin, most people and businesses are just using the £1 and £5 and ignoring the £2.
Same thing in Canada. People and businesses are ignoring the "twoonie".
Why? Because it's not "necessary".
Not a big deal. They should stop making these "2" coins. There's no demand except for collectors or accumulators.
