    Don't pick up anything less than £1, unless I've dropped it, in which case its 20p. Even if I drop it I never pick up 1/2/5/10p, usually wouldn't bother with 20p either unless I need it. It just feels all horrible! I don't know, I'm weird that way!

    10p. Not so much because of its net worth, but because 5ps are far too small to bother with, and copper coins are simply not aesthetically pleasing. :beard:

    20p, I'd say.

    My purse is full of coppers that never get spent. I don't need anymore. :p:

    Depends on where it is/how clean it is. I'd pick up a dirty 50p but not a dirty 10p. If it's clean, I'd take 1p.

    1p, even if people are around. All my coins go in a jar and banked once or twice a year. Generally throw foreign coins away though after I pick them up.

    Picked up a £10 note a few months ago, loads of people missed it. I like to think it was the one I lost about 8 years ago and it found its way back to me :yes:
