Here is the Money Found on Ground Annual Update

MFOG 2011

This year's total is £42.69. This is the highest total ever. Previous totals have been as follows

2008 42.45
2009 23.33
2010 36.62
2011 42.69

Remarkable events were the first ever finding of a two pound coin. And two five pound notes.
There were 471 coins found of which 11 of these were pound coins. There were also 6 50p coins found which is unusual as these are the second rarest next to £2 coins.
There has also been a total of 39 Euro cents and 8 US cents found.

The full coin breakdown is as follows:-

MFOG 2011 Coins

Main coin finding areas are still stations, bus stops and outside shops. The school playground has been fertile ground this year as has the climbing centre lockers.

What can we conclude? It would seem that despite a difficult economic climate Glasgow people still drop and leave a large amount of money on the streets. This increases when it's dark and raining and when drink is taken. Whilst in other cities this year such as London, Naples and Rome no coins were found at all. This may be a Glaswegian phenomenon.
