Quote from: andyg on October 19, 2011, 12:02:56 AMIn 2010 the monkey decided that the '5' had gotten too uncomfortable to sit on, so when no one was looking he cunningly switched the '5' for the 'five pence'. If you look closely you can see that he didn't quite make it back to the exact same sitting position he was in before the coin was struck.
