Coin Sets : Update

This is the next part of the story based on this idea of collecting every coin minted in England since I was born.

Yesterday I got a cryptic text off a friend, saying;

"I have a present for u! Its 18yrs old, brown and you need it to be complete, partly anyway. Do you know what it is?"

Safe to say I thought it was going to be a cryptic, mysterious riddle, but alas, after having spent hours puzzling over it, whilst hopping on and off tubes (more on that here) Maria, had actually found me, my 1991, 2p.

Amazing! Later on as well, I found a 20p in my change that I needed. The 2008 20p. What a successful day.

1988 - £1
