Hello plastic money...

But I still think a £5 coin would be better, it can't be far from the buying power of a pound when the pound note was dumped.

Now if they were to introduce plastic coins we could all just print the day's allowance off and retire from work...

*But I still think a £5 coin would be better Now if they were to introduce plastic coins*

Then we could maybe print them on a 3 D printer?

"Goodbye to grubby fivers"

The main reason Fivers (and other notes) are grubby and scruffy is down to the modern trend of not using wallets any more. People just screw them up and put them in their pockets.

£5 coin - I think not. The £2 coin although around isn't very popular and not often seen. I can't remember the last time I had one. And just think if Supermarket trolleys were to take them, firstly it would be hard to find one, and secondly I've lost enough pound coins when they've dropped out of the trolley mechanism, that now I buy trolley tokens for about 30p each as its cheaper to lose these, and so certainly wouldn't want to lose £5 coins!
