Default Euro coins to Sterling?

Is it possible to change ?1 and ?2 coins (i.e. not just notes) into pounds
sterling at high street foreign currency exchanges such as Thomas Cook or
Lunn Poly?
If so, is there a minimum amount or extra charge?

Thanks in advance.

No, notes only. You can donate coins to charity.

It is up to each bureau de change to set their own policies on this. You
might be very lucky and find one here who will take them, but most prefer to
deal only in foreign currency notes. Of course if you were in another
country, the tables would be turned - they would happily accept Euro coins,
but not UK ones.

Consider keeping them in a drawer until your next trip or changing them with
a friend who is going away. I used to work in Corfu and often used to change
my salary into sterling with visiting Brits. We just used a rate between the
buying/selling rates shown in banks and everyone was happy.

If you keep changing money backwards and forwards in bureaux de change there
will be less left for you.
