Youngerap wins the shiny 6d, (available for free collection at the Coventry auction). The £2 coin is known as the beer token because a pint of beer cost £2 when the coin was first issued.

The 3d's still made in small quantity for Maundy money are, unfortunately, the silver 3d about the size of a modern 5p and not the chunky 6.6 gram 12-sider that ran all the pinballs in the arcade in Tooting where I passed my "pinball proficiency test" in the early '60s.
