Living in the UK as I do, my options to get euro coins for my collection is limited, so I tend to buy bulk lots of leftover change from eBay, sort through then and then roll/bag up those I don't need to take with me when I next visit the eurozone. Back in 2015 I visited Barcelona and took about €200 in coins with me, mostly 10c, 20c and 50c. I stopped at a cafe for a coffee one day and paid with 20c coins, waiter didn't say anything either way, just took them. After about 20 minutes, I decided to have another coffee before heading for the bus and again paid with 20c coins (the other half of the roll I'd used earlier) and this time the waiter was over the moon because he'd run out of change. I produced the €50 I still had in coin from my bag and he took the lot and gave me a nice €50 note. Alas, it wasn't a hit, nor were any of the other notes I received or spent whilst there.

Are you one of the people who bid all the auctions up to more than £1 for €1??

This is something that has been puzzling some of us for years (why would you buy euro coins on ebay at a worse rate than buying notes at the post office or even the airport), and we always thought it was people trying to scam paypal or evade tax or something, but I never thought that it might be collectors who want to find different types of euro coins.

Do you know anyone else who buys euros on ebay?
