    I'm not familiar with what denominations of coins there are in the UK, but if there's a 25 pence coin, I would use one of those and my "Bowl-O-Rama play token" coin.

    The other one is a five pence coin. You said only one could not be a five pence coin, not the other one!

    1,5 * 10p = 15p
    0,5 * 20p = 10p

    15 + 10 = 25p

    Aha! there is a 25p coin. It's just rare.

    For a short period post-decimalisation there were coins of 0.5p, 2.5 p (old 6d) and 12.5p (old half crown). So at that time 25p could have been made up of 2 x 12.5p coins.

    Yes I really am that old!

    Melt any two coins down, and mold them into the words "25 pence".

    I've heard this riddle posed as 2 American coins totalling 15 cents, and one isn't a nickel.
