Me and a mate bought a car between us for fishing. Eventually he moved away so I kept the car after he had used it to move some stuff. The last thing he took from his old place was all the loose change he kept laying about, he'd empty his pockets and put the coins anywhere. The carrier bag they were in kept spilling out in the car, so after going on at him as to when he was going to pick it up, he said give it to my kids. They had so much fun counting it out, the silver they bagged, the coppers we took to a coin star machine. There was over £30 in coppers, and all told over £180 in change, he was a bit gutted as he didn't realise how much there was, but he said a deal was a deal and the kids kept it, and that was over 15 years ago.When my dad died (Alzheimer's) we were clearing his room out and under the mattress was about 50p in coppers and 3 bus passes does that count?
When my grandmother had to be moved out of her council flat in Deptford London into a care home we found 27k stashed in all sorts of places, she had got a neighbour to draw her pension buy a bit of shopping and give her the change I think it was accumulated over quite a few years fr when my grandfather died
A woman would make short work of it !How do you dispose of £1/2million in cash?
You can't bank it without attracting the attention of money laundering rules - I think the maximum cash transaction is £8,800
You would struggle to spend it, you'd lose interest on it, and the biggest worry is people out there would know you have it.
