Exchange Your Old Foreign Notes Today

Posted on: July 11th, 2017 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

Out of circulation? No problem! We can help you exchange them before it’s to late.

As the excitement for the next £5 note and £1 coin calms down, we look at when they are discontinued and what you can do to keep those penny’s safe so you can still get your money’s worth. As well as this, we will let you know what exactly is old but still exchangeable for now, so you still have time to get your soon to be expired coins and notes into us.

UK £5 Notes

As you’re probably aware, the change-over in fiver’s from paper to plastic saw the UK going into meltdown… Literally. The so-called indestructible plastic note that saw people trying to tear, melt and even use them to play through a vinyl player! However, you may not be aware that the old beloved fiver note has now been discontinued. Do not fear, we are still happy to exchange these for you!

Cypriot Pounds

Now, you may be less familiar with the news that the Cypriot pounds will no longer be accepted after 31st December 2017. If you have holidayed abroad to the beautiful country of Cyrpus in the last 9 years, you may be aware that the Cypriot Pound was swapped for the Euro in 2008. Now, if you happen to find a few of these lying around in old suitcase, under the sofa or in the ‘junk’ drawer then please don’t forget to contact us before December 31st!


Spanish Pesetas

Whilst this one is a little less urgent, it is still crucial you get your left over Spanish Pesetas before December 31st 2020 (that gives you 2 and a half years of rummaging!) The Spanish Peseta has changed considerably over the years with a changeover in the 1980’s from old chunky notes, to notes that were designed around a modern era and had features such as the security thread and florescent fibres, as well as the large engraved images of history figureheads. However, these were changed again in the early 90’s, introducing American figureheads on to their currency as well as Spanish, to celebrate the fifth centenary anniversary of the discovery of ‘modern’ American. These notes included even more security features, including that of the advanced lithographic ink. This ink helps to detect fraud when an ultraviolet light is placed over them. They even had a feature added that helped people with impaired vision to distinguish the notes through embossed marks. These advanced notes then paved way for the new Euro notes that were introduced into Spain in 2002.


Using this as a gentle reminder, get searching and collecting those unused, unwanted coins and notes and send them over to us whilst you still have time! If you have any queries, feel free to get in touch with us at Cash4Coins so we can help you get the most out of your exchange.

UK Households Unearth More Than £3.79 Billion in Lost Change & Foreign Currency Each Year

Posted on: July 6th, 2017 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

A UK study has revealed that the average British home harbours more than £140 in “lost” UK sterling and foreign change. The sides of the sofa, clothing pockets and the back of drawers are the most likely areas to uncover forgotten cash. 


New research has found that Britons have three different types of foreign currency at home from previous trips abroad at any one time. Euros, US Dollars and Turkish Lira were revealed as the most common kinds of international notes and coins unknowingly hidden in the average UK property. 

The team at polled 2,948 British adults aged 18 and over as part of the study into hidden finances of the average UK home. Participants polled were spread evenly across each of the UK regions, with all those taking part currently renting or owning their own property. 

Firstly, all respondents were asked how often they found loose change (UK or foreign notes and coins) in unexpected areas of their home, with the vast majority (93%) admitting that this happened to them on weekly basis. When these individuals were then asked to estimate how much was found during each discovery, the average amount emerged as £2.70, equating to £140.40 over the course of a year. Taking into account the total number of households within the UK (27.1 million*) this would equate to £3.79 billion found across the entirety of British homes each year. 

Everyone taking part was then given an extensive list of possible answers and asked to state the areas that they’d previously uncovered forgotten change (coins and/or notes) in their homes, with the five most common answers emerging as follows: 

1.       Down the side of a sofa/under cushions – 72%

2.       Inside clothes pockets – 64%

3.       At the back of drawers – 49%

4.       Under the bed – 22%

5.       Inside pots and/or ornaments (e.g. vases) – 16%

Participants were given the option of ‘other’ in order to add in some of the more unusual locations they’d found hidden change in their homes. From this, researchers uncovered that a total of nine participants had found loose change hidden in a pet’s bed, while seven respondents managed to retrieve money that had been dropped into their toilet bowl. 

When asked if foreign currency from travelling abroad had been amongst the loose change found around their home within the last year, more than three quarters of respondents (77%) admitted that it had been. Of these, the majority (84%) stated that they’d forgotten they had the currency following their return from foreign trips, as there wasn’t enough to convert back into UK sterling. The most common foreign currencies unearthed in UK homes emerged as Euros (78%), US Dollars (23%) and Turkish Lira (19%).

Kirsty O’Sullivan, spokesperson for, said:

“Finding a little unexpected treasure at the bottom of your sock drawer or down the side of your sofa can be a thrill – depending on how much you discover.” 

And with that, we encourage you to have a rummage behind your sofas, under the bed and definitely under where ‘X’ marks the spot in your garden (who knew that was there?). And if you happen to come across those coins that you have no use for, then why not give us a call, so we can help you shift that unwanted currency!

A Brief History of the Knights Templar

Posted on: June 9th, 2017 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

And London’s First bank…

Our knowledge of currency stems from the invention of trade between merchants. This was often trade between workmen, trading their services, goods or cattle.  However, the concept behind storing currency to those who could be trusted with others money was one that came about in the 1100’s. It was established by a group of men called the Knights Templar.


Who are the Knights Templar?

These groups of men were thought to be warrior monks that were highly faithful to their religion and the holy war and fancied themselves as loyal to their hierarchy. Their home was situation on Fleet Street in London, a place called Temple Church. This church still exists today and is not just known as the residency of the Knights Templar, but home to London’s first bank.

Why and how did they come to create London’s first bank?

The thought behind this idea came from the pilgrimage that the Knights were dedicated to: a voyage that took them thousands of miles from London to Jerusalem. They needed somewhere to store and exchange their money safely and trustfully and avoid taking large sums of cash from one end of Europe to the other. The idea was that they could store their money in London and withdraw it in Jerusalem, saving them from being burgled when carrying large amounts of cash and still being able to afford food ad resources for their journey.

How did it work?

Though not the same of banks today, which are typically ran by the government, these banks were thought to be ran privately, owned by the Pope and connected through Kings and Queens across Europe. This allowed some sense of security for the Knights. However, this was not just a typical exchange and transfer of money for its users, the bank provided financial services. The Templars acted as brokers, providing Kings and Queens with land through the means of loans and yearly payments. It is known that the Crown Jewels were kept there as a security loan for payments of small islands across Europe, similar to the pawn-brokers of today, although on a much larger scale (I have a feeling that the Queen has never popped down to her local pawn shop with the Crown Jewels for a house in the countryside!) Though this did not last forever and eventually the European order of this bank and others broke down by the 1300’s after the European Christians lost control of Jerusalem.


New Ventures

However, all is not lost. Though the Templar disbanded, an Italian merchant placed in Lyon, France, decided to buy and sell debt, becoming very rich. While the other merchants around him were laboring, trading their goods, this Italian merchant simply sat and waited for money to come to him. He would sell something called a ‘bill of exchange’ that could be recognised, not as money, but as a means of exchange for money in the Italian province of Florence – Many miles away from the small town in France where he resided. It eventually become a large network and as this network of bankers grew, they would meet every year at fairs in places such as Lyon to go through their books and settle any unwanted debts. From this model comes the credit card, a system that allows a simple piece of paper (or in today’s technology, a chip and pin card) to exchange credit for goods: a radical new system that was worth investing in.


This system did not come without mistrust and a band of hierarchy that became corrupt with power. Much like events we saw on Wall Street in the 80’s, banks and organisations alike across the world would come together in an effort to avoid paying tax and creating private money between the hierarchies that were untouchable by the government. The regulations of these banks have been tested time over by governments across the world, yet it seems that those holding the most power (and coincidently, the most debt) will always prevail. Even back in the 1300’s the Templars saw their fate as one of torture by the King, who had outstanding debts he couldn’t pay off. Instead of simply working with these men to sought restoration, he used his hierarchy to have them tortured and burned to death in order to claim back what he believed to be his.


Great minds think alike

This may have been a great new way to share and exchange money but back in China, several centuries earlier; the Tang dynasty used a similar format called “feiquan”. This can be translated to ‘flying money’. It was a system that allowed merchants to deposit their profits into a central office and then withdraw it in cash in the capital.

Although this is a great piece of British and European history, we won’t let you go through the hassle of long voyages or trading cattle for a simple credit exchange! At Cash4Coins we exchange your foreign currency… for cash! We can’t accept your Crown Jewels, but give us a call today if you would like to know more about how we can help you.





5 Things You Might Not Know About UK Coins

Posted on: June 23rd, 2014 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

In our last blog post, we talked about how the Royal Mint has gone all retro by designing a new £1 coin with a shape that resembles the old threepenny bit. If you are old enough to remember what a threepenny bit looks like then you will know exactly what we are talking about. If you needed to consult Google about this mysterious coin, you might want to read up a little on the history of coins and a few surprising facts.

1. What is a Threepenny Bit?

The threepence, also know as the Threepenny Bit and the Thrupence, was first introduced in 1547 by King Edward VI. Many people complained about its very small size, but it wasn’t until 1937 that a larger 12-sided threepence was introduced.

2. Coins have been made in Britain since 100 BC

You might think that those dusty old coppers in your drawer at home are old, but spare a thought for the first coins to be used in the UK. These were imported from Northern France by a Celtic tribe and used to trade for goods and food. The first coins actually produced in the UK were made from an alloy mix of tin and bronze and were used by many tribes along the Thames Valley. By 55 BC, many tribes were producing coins using silver and gold and many featured the tribe’s own unique design. These coins continued to be made and used until the Roman invasion and the enforcement of Roman coins being used as national currency.

3. Where did the term ‘Quid’ come from?

It is not actually certain where the slang “quid” came from, but a common belief is that it comes from the Latin term Quid Pro Quo. This term pretty much means “what for what” or “something for something”. The first use of the word quid on record was in 1661 in the book ‘Strange News From Bartholomew-Fair’, by P.Aretine – “The fool lost his purse, but how he knew not; for the reckoning being suddainly brought in, his Quids vanisht”. I think we’ve all been there!

4. Decimal Day Had Its Own Song

In 1971, the UK and Ireland moved from the old system that used pounds, shillings and pence to the new decimalised currency that we know today. Pounds and pence were quite different to what people were used to and so the new coins were introduced gradually to allow time for people to adjust to the new system. Alongside the leaflets and TV ads, there was also a song that was used to help people get to grips with the new coins and way of spending. Listen to it once and you’ll be singing it all day. We did warn you!

5. Sir Isaac Newton Worked At The Royal Mint

Yes, the man famed for defining the Laws of Motion and getting hit on the head with an apple, also worked at the Royal Mint. Sir Isaac Newton, or  just Mr Newton as he was at the time, had the heady title of Master of the Royal Mint. He took his role extremely seriously and would often go undercover in pubs and bars in an effort to collect evidence of coin counterfeiting. He was quite successful too! He managed to prosecute 28 ‘coiners’ as they were known and see that they were hung, drawn and quartered.

Here’s One More Interesting Fact For You

We handle everything for you during the coin exchange process – you don’t even need to count or sort your coins.

Are £20 Coins Legal Tender?

Posted on: May 19th, 2014 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

Since they were first introduced in 2013, there has been some confusion over whether the first £20 coin to be released in the UK is legal tender. The simple answer is “Yes it is!”, but we wanted to give you a little more detail than that!

What Does Legal Tender Mean?

The term ‘legal tender’ refers to any coin, note or object that can be used to settle a debt. If you pay a debt using legal tender you cannot be sued for non-payment.

Coins in the UK are regulated by the Coinage Act of 1971. One of the items within the regulations states that the following coins and denominations shall be legal tender:

  • Coins made from silver or cupro-nickel of a denomination of  more than 10 pence,  for payment of any amount not exceeding £10.
  • Coins made from silver or cupro-nickel of a denomination of not more than 10 pence, for payment of any amount not exceeding £5.
  • Coins made from bronze, for payment of any amount not exceeding 20 pence.

So this means that a shop is not legally required to accept more than 20 pence in copper coins – although most will be willing to do so to be courteous.

But Wait…There’s No Mention Of The £20 Coin Being Legal Tender

There is also no mention of the £5 coin being legal tender. That is because both of these coins were released after the Coinage Act of 1971 was formulated.

This meant that the £20 coin and £5 received some very special attention in order to be recognised as legal tender.

Here is a breakdown on the Royal Mint’s legal tender guidelines:

£20 – for any amount

£5 (Crown) – for any amount

£2 – for any amount

£1 – for any amount

50p – for any amount not exceeding £10

25p (Crown) – for any amount not exceeding £10

20p – for any amount not exceeding £10

10p – for any amount not exceeding £5

5p – for any amount not exceeding £5

2p – for any amount not exceeding 20p

1p – for any amount not exceeding 20p

The Royal Proclamation

Any coin to be legal tender that is not included in the Coinage Act of 1971 needs to be issued with a Royal Proclamation from the Queen. Thanks to Queen Elizabeth being advised by her Privy Council to issue a proclamation, we are now able to use £20 and £5 coins as we would any other legal tender.

Hurray! So I Can Spend Them In The Shops Then?

Ah, don’t go rushing down to the corner shop with your big shiny coin just yet. Whilst the £20 has been deemed legal tender it has not yet been designed to be a circulating coin. That means you can still use it to settle a debt in court, but you will probably find that your corner shop or your bank will not accept a £20 coin in exchange for goods or services.

We Can Exchange Your Commemorative Coins!

The great thing about Cash4Coins is that we can exchange all of your legal tender coins whether they are in circulation or not. It’s quick easy and convenient to exchange commemorative coins with us and we will give you a quick valuation to consider at your leisure.

Counterfeit British Coin Guide

Posted on: August 25th, 2012 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

Counterfeit coin guide – how to spot a fake

Counterfeit £1 coins are becoming a huge problem in the UK with an estimated 3% of all £1 coins now thought to be fake. This would mean that there are £44 million pounds (yes, that’s 44 million pound coins) in circulation. Indeed, you may have received fake coins in your change from a store and been worried about spending them. The problem is huge and it can become harder and harder to spot the fake coins.

With this many coins floating around it’s highly likely that you’ve had a few counterfeit £1 coins – but how do you spot them?

According to the Royal Mint it’s important that you check your change and if you spot a fake coin then ask for a replacement immediately. However if you don’t notice the dud coin until later the advice is to take it to a Police station. This helps the Police spot trends in counterfeiting in certain areas and ultimately helps prevent it.

The sophistication of counterfeit coins varies and the methods employed by forgers varies, however here is a simple guide to help you spot the most common mistakes.

Dates and designs

Each year the design of reverse side of the £1 coin is changed and so date of the coin should match the design for that year.

Coin quality

Real £1 coins will lose a bit of their shine and lustre after they have been in general circulation for a while. Some of the fake coins don’t lose their shine and can appear not to show signs of age.


The orientation of the designs on both sides of the coin should be aligned when turned round.

Edge Lettering

The inscription on the edge of a real coin will always correspond to the year date of the coin. Usually, with counterfeits the milled edge of the coin will be badly defined with the lettering uneven or spaced incorrectly.

What do you do if you have a fake coin.

Using any counterfeit coins is illegal. If you have a fake coin or suspect that a coin is fake you should hand in to your local police station.

More information on counterfeit coins can be found on the Royal Mint website. 

At Cash4Coins we have a vast knowledge of the coins that are in circulation and those that are no longer legal tender. Whether you have lots of old British or Irish currency at home or you are a charity wanting to exchange foreign coins for Sterling or another currency, we can help.  Of course, we cannot help you with your fake coins but we can help you with those legal coins you have collecting dust at home.

Exchange Pre Decimal Coins

Posted on: August 17th, 2012 by c4c-admin-account No Comments

Exchange pre decimal old Irish and British coins into sterling

Before decimalisation in 1971, there were different British and Irish coins each having its own value. The farthing, halfpenny, sixpence, crown and shilling were the most popular coins in existence. When these coins were phased out of circulation, many people were left with excess coins that could no longer be used. These coins were often saved and given to children for collection. People now want to exchange pre decimal coins for quick cash.

Cash4Coins exchanges these coins because many banks will not. Hanging on to coins that have no circulation value may be great for collectors, but many people want access to cash. The valuation of these coins can be made quickly and the sorting and counting is completed easily to come up with a fair offer for the pre-decimal coins. It is common for people to exchange pre decimal coins and use the money for savings or charitable donations.

If you have no use for your coin collection then why not pass it on to Cash4Coins? We exchange pre decimal coins that you might not have had time to use or exchange before they went out of circulation.  Keep a couple back as keepsakes and send the rest to our team for counting and sorting. We will arrange a valuation for your consideration and at no point are you under any obligation to accept this valuation. If you are not happy with the valuation we give you, we will simply send back your coins free of charge.

What else do you exchange?

Foreign coins and notes can be collected during trips and holidays. These can be kept as souvenirs or for the hope of returning again in the future. Exchanging this foreign currency is not an option at UK banks. Freeing up this currency is easy when exchanging for sterling at Cash4Coins. This can bring new life into old currency that cannot be used.

Gathering foreign notes and coins from friends or family members can increase the amount of cash that is received. People are often quick to get rid of foreign currencies that cannot be used. And remember that anyone can exchange pre decimal coins at Cash4Coins for easy cash.
