Scottish money is widely accepted in England, but it is not legal tender anywhere in the UK.

I'm not a lawyer, but in layman's terms legal tender means that it MUST be accepted by a creditor in setlement of a debt. Only money issued by the Bank of England carries such an obligation. (I've since discovered that Bank Of England coins carry this obligation, but not Notes!)

Interetingly (or perhaps not!Confused), there are limits on the number of coins which constitute "Legal tender". These are:

COINS:

Circulating coins are legal tender throughout the United Kingdom for the following amounts:


£ 2 - for any amount

£1 - for any amount

50p - for any amount not exceeding £10

25p (Crown) - for any amount not exceeding £10

20p - for any amount not exceeding £10

10p - for any amount not exceeding £5

5p - for any amount not exceeding £5

2p - for any amount not exceeding 20p

1p - for any amount not exceeding 20p

Sorry for boring those who find all this extremely dull!Embarrassed

I am also no lawyer, but I've often spent Scottish bank notes in England, and have yet to be arrested for it!

Cert, you are so right - how about that particular favorite of mine, "thinking outside of the box"?



I don't like that very much, either!

any word with 'blog' in it. The word by itself is teetering on the edge of annoying, but when it morphs into 'blogger', 'blogging', 'blogosphere', etc., we've gone too far...
