British Coins
« on: May 22, 2014, 19:40:03 »
Since there is absolutely no way to either
a) get rolls of british coins as spare change before the convention, outside the UK nor
b) to change them back into EUR (or USD,...) after returning, outside the UK
and there is no help from the Dealers Den team in this matter,

who is interested in organising something among the dealers to change between british paper money and coins?

I've messaged Cosmo to see if we can help with this in the future.

If the con aren't able to help (possibly as they can't afford to hold large stocks of Euros on the chance that someone might want them), I seem to recall there being a Bureaux de Change over at Birmingham airport - so a quick trip over there might sort it out for you (though I know they often give horrible exchange rates !  :-\ )

I don't think that's what they meant bezel, as far as I can determine they want to swap their uk change for uk notes so that they can change those for notes in their currency themselves.

Other end of the stick there, I believe they are talking about change from notes, for a float.

I just read the first post again and it seems we're both right.
