Pre-decimal coin hoarders
Pre-decimal Coin Hoarders
November 28, 2018
The floors of Stalls, Stalls Circle, Grand Tier and Balcony are concrete. Before the next season we plan to beautify them with a coating of shimmery resin, embedded with nostalgic coins. And so we went looking for hoarders.
Nobody expected there were so many pre-decimal coins in hiding.
Will Hillary’s 10,000+ coins included a Bells whisky jeraboam of sixpences.
21 other donors (listed) had 10,000+ squirrelled away: threepenny bits, a few farthings, some Guernsey doubles and copper.
With enormous thanks to:
