At EXACTLY 72.5g that would be £4.25

8 x 50p, 1 x 20p, 1 x 5p

However UNDER that weight I could have £10.70

72.5 grams = 2.55736 oz

2.557 ounces (which equals 72,5 grams) = 2354 Pence Sterling (GBX)

That's the best I can do.

Err, Bry - that's ounces of silver (element Ag) not UK 'silver' coins which are cupronickel or probably something even cheaper now. The last real silver ones apart from Maundy Money were in about 1947. "The symbol for XAG can be written Ag Oz. The exchange rate for the Ounces of Silver was last updated on April 17, 2008 from Bloomberg. The XAG conversion factor has 4 significant digits." http://coinmill.com/GBX_XAG.html#XAG=2.55736
