Puzzle Details

Every year, just before my birthday, I open my money box to see how much money I have.

Imagine my surprise when I found exactly £49.58 made up of equal numbers of 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p.

How many of each coin did I find?

Answer: 134 of each coin.

2p + 5p + 10p + 20p = 37p.

There are 134 lots of 37p in £49.58.
