There are two tins:
- Small change
- Proper money
Small change is anything that is not really worth carrying around. This means 1p, 2p, 5p, and yes, 10p pieces.
Proper money is anything larger than that. So 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. Sometimes a 10p will make it in, depending upon my mood. If it is a note I just carry it anyway. Proper money is called upon when I need to park in Basildon, cross the Dartford bridge or buy a 99p coffee in Pret.
