Is it possible to ask a shop, e.g. Tesco, for a cashback in coins, say 5 x £1? Or is it better to withdraw a £10 bill from a cash machine and ask for the change to be in £1 coins when paying with it?
No problem to ask, and you will get reasonable amounts with no problem. Five one-pound coins is quite reasonable.
