Im happy to see the 1p and 2p remain.

Me too. 

I see far less small change lying on the street than I once did.  I suspect that is because these days people tend to use alcohol at home, rather than down the pub.

All big supermarkets in the UK seem to have change machines, externally owned, and charging a rip off 10% plus.  Its about time at least one of them and stepped up to the plate and put in free machines - I judge that would pull in some custom. 

All UK Sam Smiths pubs now take cash only.  And ban any use of mobile phones on the premises. 

You can get a pint there for about 1.60
