A spokesperson said: "We love challenges that make us think, and a good brainteaser is a great distraction if you're stuck at home at the moment.

"The fastest person to discover the coin in our team did it in 6 seconds, but we reckon you've done well if you can find the coin within 15 seconds". 

If you love trivia as much as finding rogue objects, then you'll be excited to learn the origins of piggy banks.

They were first invented in the Middle Ages, when metal was expensive and homeware was made of a crude clay pottery called 'pygg'.

Any spare coins people had left at the end of the working day would go in to a pygg pot, and so the piggy bank was born.

If you didn't manage to find the coin, you can see a solved version of the puzzle below.
