What's the going rate for the tooth fairy?

My eldest has a wobbly tooth.

What is the going rate for the tooth fairy?

Thinking £1 is too low to be useful these days, but a £5 implies a note and not  coin.

Kind of wish there were £5 coins in wide circulation.

Historically it was a sixpence.  These were sterling silver and just under 3g, or about 1/10th ounce of silver.  Silver is about £13 an ounce, so by a historical standard the rate should be about £1.30.  You could be forgiven for rounding up to £2, but £5 is surely just showing off.

Since the last round of QE, she only takes bitcoin, alcohol or toilet paper.

Tooth fairy gets paid in teeth. So that'll be a tooth.

:lol:

I gave my 5 year old 72p in a mixture of coins. He was very pleased. Our 6 year old neighbour got £15 for his.

A while ago I bought a little tooth fairy box - fairy on top - which I gave as a christening present.  It was just big enough to tuck a 1/2 or 1/4 gold sovereign inside - forget which - so there's an (expensive!) idea for you!  

Having said that, I now have a mind to buy some 1/4 sovs for grandchildren's teeth, though it'll be a while since they're only 2 and a bit and 11 months. Also my daughter is somewhat disorganised so they'd probably get lost, but it's a nice idea.
