Join the UK’s first and largest coin hunt with the official The Great British Coin Hunt Quintessentially British A to Z app. With the app, you can enjoy the thrill of the hunt wherever it takes you. Whether you are hunting for your very first 10p coin or trying to track down specific letters between A and Z, this app is your ultimate coin hunting tool kit.

Just getting started? This app walks you through The Great British Coin Hunt adventure from the very beginning. Use it to keep track of your collection, by scanning each coin and letter you find in your change.

With the app, you’ll be the first to receive exciting news, tips and exclusive insight in to where the rare coins are being found. And by using the app’s heat map, not only can you log your coins, but you can see where others are being found across the whole of Great Britain.

The app’s live statistics will allow you to keep on top of how many coins are being found and logged in the app every day, and its coin recognition technology allows you to find, scan and add to your own collection wherever you are.

And why not create your own coin? With the app, you can take part in our interactive game or even design your own coin, share with friends to see who can create the best design which represents Great Britain.

Disappointing and restricted

I was really looking forward to this app to, at last, track my collection. However, whilst I am excited about the hunt for the new 10p coins, I’m disappointed that the coin can only scan the 10p and not other coins (like the marvellous 50p or £2 coins).

Also, why doesn’t it remember my login details and instead need me to put it in every time?! It’s a coin hunting app, that layer of ‘security’ and failure to remember my login details adds a layer of frustration.

So, great that at last there’s an official coin hunt app, shame about the restricted execution.

Developer Response ,


Thank you for taking your time to review the app. Firstly let me apologise for any frustration you have experienced while using the app. If you get the latest version we have upgraded the speed and fixed the bug which was logging users out too frequently.

With regards to adding other coins for your collection, for the initial launch we wanted to coincide this with the new 10p coins, in future iterations of the app we hope to add more coins to collect.

Kind Regards,

Needs work.

I can see where this app was meant to be headed, but it didn’t work out, for the most part, it’s ok, but the map is awful! This being the main part of the app, (it’s a hunt, you need a map) is upsetting, it’s constantly jumping around and whenever you zoom in the mark (where your supposed to go to find coins) disappears, if the developers are active, I feel that this could be quickly fixed and this would be a good, possibly excellent app! So I do hope something does get done and relatively quickly.

Needs more work

This app doesn’t distinguish between circulated and uncirculated coins. Anyone can buy themselves a set of uncirculated coins but surely the whole point of the coin hunt is to know where the coins have been put in to circulation so that people can try and get them in their change. This would make the map worthwhile as it would show people where to shop to try and find them.
The map currently doesn’t zoom in enough to see where the coins are.
