if you have 'thousands' that equates to a few pints to me so i would just get down to counting them. no offense but in the time it took to maintain this thread you could have done it already.... As i said, count it out roughly, should take no more than 1 min per pound unless you have dyscalculia (not that i'm knocking anyone who does). then you'll have a bunch of approximate pound. simply keep the last part-pound loose to use to top up the pounds as required in the bank. what's left after that becomes the seed for the next pile or food for the blackpool fishies. Or you could always donate the loose coins to a charity, god forbid!!!
