Here is the Money Found on Ground Annual Update.

MFOG 2013 jpeg

This year's total is £39.13. This is a decrease on last years all time high score. Previous totals have been as follows.

2008 42.45
2009 23.33
2010 36.62
2011 42.69
2012 46.29
2013 39.13

The was one remarkable event find of a five pound note.
There have been 489 coins found in total, a marked decrease on last year. Eleven £1 coins were found. This is slightly less than one a month which is a decrease on previous years, when it was slightly more than one a month. No £2 coins were found this year and 50p coins remain the second least frequent at only 2 per year.
Foreign coins amount to 98c Euro and 43c US. This is an increase on last year.

Main coin finding areas are still stations, bus stops and outside shops, although since Pog started High School this has also been a frequent finding location. One point is that while in previous years the route to work/university etc has been varied the daily journey in 2013 is exactly comparable to the journey in 2011 and 2012. There was a relatively low point in October, when due to injury, I couldn't bend over and had to leave a number of coins on the ground.

What can we conclude? If we can interpret anything about the state of the economy from money found on the ground it would appear that Glasgow has entered a double dip recession and people are still on an austerity drive. One hypothesis could be that the increased number of sunny days in 2013, especially during the Summer, have lead to an decrease in MFOG as generally there is more money left on rainy days than dry sunny days.

MFOG is one of the highlights of the year in review. Thank you for the pie chart.

My best was £125 found on a beach at Porth Dinlan last year. Handed into the Police, cheque for the full amount received two months later.

That is an amazing find.

I found 335 once and, like you, I turned it into the police and got it back two months later.

I never spent it on anything, just put it in the bank.
