I won't bother with coppers these days, probably not even for 5 or 10 cent pieces but probably for a 25 cent or higher.
Yeeeeeeeeeahhhhh... I've been known to walk past 5p. 10p would depend how much of a hurry I was in and how agile I was feeling. 20p would be a definite grab.Which on reflection is a bit mad. I mean, what can you get for 20p? It's not even enough for a bag of crisps.
take no notice of the neigh sayers. Money's money wherever you find it. However I suggest you move to a wealthier part of the capital where the streets are paved with gold and pound coins are there for the taking
I once stooped to pick up 22 cents -- 2 dimes and 2 pennies (U.S.) -- only to learn that the coins had been super-glued to the cement.Of course, I walked on ... pretending I'd never even tried to pick 'em up.
We don't have coppers here in OZ any more but I would bend over and pick up a "goldie" which is a $1 or $2 coin.
I'm ashamed to say 1p! I bent down (oooer madam) to pick up a stray penny coin just the other day...but then I usually think of the old maxim: "See a penny, pick it up, and all day long, you'll have good luck." I am a little supersitious in that respect.
I think any spare 'ground cash' round here has been well and truly shaken away, but I agree with Barry - money is money wherever you find it and it soon adds up!
If I saw a farthing, I think I would pick it up!
I also believe in the old saying - "See a penny, pick it up, and all day long, you'll have good luck." so a few weeks back I started picking up every cent (euro) I saw and saving it - I now have 2.83 and will buy a Lotto ticket when I get to 3euro - here's hoping xx
I'll pick up any coin I see!When I was at school, a friend of mine had the knack for seeing dropped coins and she'd always pocket them. We walked round the school together every break time and found pounds-worth of money every day. No-one else noticed it, or thought it was worth it!And for the record, it's "See a PIN and pick it up - all day long you'll have good luck!" People mostly get that wrong. I always say "See a penny, pick it up - all day long, you'll have a penny (unless you spend it, or loose it)"Doesn't really have the same ring, does it? =)
