plenty charities will be accepting them for some months to come.
they all announced months ago when ending dates were given that they would continue to accept!!

not sure who/where in Portugal they can be donated but there is certain to be somewhere
failing that give to holidaymakers and ask that they be donated on retrurn to UK

(1) Sell them on EBay
(2) Post them back to relatives who can use them.
(3) Use them as chips for your poker nights.
(4) Frame them for nostalgia sake.
(5) Find a vending machine with a similar sized coin that you can use them in.
(6) If your better half isn't doing what you think they should be doing, pop one into an appropriate slot to get them going (although generally the 50 pence piece works better in this regard).

I could go on......how many can there be?
