What happens when 15,000 2p coins are ‘mysteriously’ piled by a canal in London

What happens when 15,000 2p coins are ‘mysteriously’ piled by a canal in London

Jamahl McMurran (@JHM_UK) tweeted this on Wednesday:

McMurran and his Airbnb guest Lana Mesic, a photographer from Holland, had been discussing the night before what to do with 15,000 2p coins that Mesic had been using for a photo shoot, they decided to carry the 16.7 stone of coins down to a spot opposite the balcony and document what was going to happen if they just left the £300 in coins.

First of all a few kids showed up

“I think the social experiment has gone viral because people love watching other people’s behaviours,” said McMurran. “Humans are naturally interested in what others do and how they behave in unusual circumstances.”

This awesome guy showed up:

And, just like some of our deals, finally, two guys rocked up and took the lot:

“When you have something like this, it’s almost like a treasure pile,” said Mesic. “Like a pirate with a chest of coins. It appeals to something magic.”

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
