What we learned this week

  • This week detectives seized the biggest ever haul of fake pound coins, one in 40 of which is counterfeit. I realised I didn’t know what you were supposed to do with a fake coin, so I looked it up. Here’s the Royal Mint guide.
  • Global carbon emissions rose to 391 ppm in 2011.


  1. I handed a fake pound coin into a Police Station once. The officer on the desk didn’t seem to understand why or what he should do with it.

  2. Hmm, then the police need to read the Royal Mint guidance too. Unfortunately, if you report fake currency, the police don’t give you another pound coin back for it. It’s your loss, so I don’t suppose many people are going to be queuing up to hand them in.
