    Probably a 10p, might consider a 5p if I was feeling particularly trampy.

    50p-£1...I don't even pick up 5p's that fall out of my pocket, unless I plan on catching the Bus.

    I'd pick up a 5p even, wouldn't bother with coppers. If I dropped a coin, I'd pick it up no matter what, as long as I could see where it was.

    probably 20p.. in case it was undated and actually worth £50!

    i used to work in a shop and this woman once handed in this wad of money that she found in the changing room.. turned out to be like 400 quid. i think i'd have kept it if i were her!!

    i never did find out what happened to it in the end.. i reckon my manager kept it though.
    I once found £200 in a public toilet...

    Best day ever :love:

    My sister's other half found £20 in a pub, he picked it up and we all legged it before anyone could claim it lol.

    I'd probably pick up 20p if it was on the floor - no less than 20p though.

    1p. I always pick up any coins or notes I find.

    I tend to find notes more often than coins though. I've found £20 notes on the ground on 3 different occasions; I'm amazed at how many people just walked straight past it.
    Because they're not greedy like you :yes:

    Wouldn't bother with anything less than about 50p - not really worth it otherwise.I'll admit I sometimes throw away my copper coins I have lying around as they aren't worth an awful lot.

    Maybe 20p up.

    I'm a bit relunctant to pick up coins now. A couple of years ago I was coming out of town on my way home from school and I saw a 50p on the ground I went to pick it up and it wouldn't budge. I just sorta scuttled on embarrassed thinking that there were probably folk sitting on a bench laughing at me or filming me! I wonder how many others fell for it. Now whenever I see a coin of reasonable value on the ground I give it a little nudge with my shoe just in case.

    However, when I am a poor university student I will be wrestling my friends for the 5p on the floor :awesome:
